Show info. in property window in VB5

When you select an object at design time in VB5 and press F4 to see the properties for that object you can click one of the properties i.e if object is textbox you can click Text property which sets/gets textbox's text when yopu click you can on the property you can see the description of that property does at the bottom of the property window.

I would like to implement such functionality into my ActiveX (OCX) control in VB5.  I hope someone can help

Use the property of each control and show them in a text box

Like  text1.text  =  control.text  it will show you the value on the property and then you can change it after  control.text = text1.text.

Some property are read only at design time other are read only at run time.

Maybe i misunderstand your question it look to easy.

Sorry Dabellei, but that is not what I meant. Look here
If I create a text box and select it and press F4 then the property window will appear..Right... now if I click property text in the property window, Visual Basic will display(below the property window)exactly the following:

Text
Returns/Sets the text contained in the control


Now this is the description of the property and every other property that you click on will have a different description

This is the functionality that I am after

Thanks for trying

On the menu in VB, click on 'Tools|Procedure Attributes' and in the description field type the text you want to appear.  You can also use this dialog box to set the default property, hide the property from the properties window etc. (click on the 'Advanced>>' button for more options.

I think this is what you are after.
