I have a very simple usercontrol sitting on a form. The form code contains an array of strings ie. Dim MyArray(0 to 100). How can my usercontrol obtain that array information, it just wants to read it and check it is OK.
I tried using usercontrol.parent.Myarray but got an error message.

I don't think you can do this directly.

I suggest you add a Procedure in the UserControl(i.e. Sub) to pass the array in/out the UserControl.

e.g.
Public Sub SetArray(MyArray())
..
End Sub

Public Sub GetArray(MyArray())
..
End Sub

Put Public in front of the definition

Public MyArray (0 to 100) as Variant
