For (a) , you can use the controls collection to get each item in it such as "For each ctrX in me.controls" , the control's name is ctrX.name.

For (b) Vb don't support this.

For part a JiaH is correct but for part b of your question he is wrong. You can get all the properties and methods From the IDE in add-ins component or from microsoft unsuported dll

fduah,

The first part of your answer works correctly.  I knoew that was the easy part.  

As for the second part:

Dim pr as property  <-- vb reports that property is an undefined user type.
