Suppose I have 10 textbox on a single form.I don't
want to write code like this:

  text1.text = ""
  text2.text = ""
    |
    |
  text10.text = "" 

  I don't want hard coding(like "text1" or "text2"
  or..."text10").And also i want to make it blank.

Please give me solution with less coding. may be in a single line ?

With warm regards,

Nilesh shah

You can also copy one textbox and paste over and over to create a control array, such as Text(1), Text(2), etc.

Dim i As Integer
For i = 0 to 9
   Text(i).Text = ""
Next i

I would agree with hddp666, using the control array would also make operations easier down the line if the text box information is going to be related or similar.

Only change I'd make is that instead of coding "For i = 0 to 9" I'd code it "For i = Text1.Lbound TO Text1.Ubound" so it'll be dynamic as the control array size changes.

("For i ="??? Hmm, do I smell an old FORTRAN programmer out there? <G>)

Old habits don't die hard until after the faux-clever businessmen "save money" on engineers' and designers' salaries, right up to the brink of The Mother of All Crises, and then wind up paying dearly for the obsolete programming skills necessary to fix the "bargains" they obtained in the past 8-}

The Experts call this sort of behavior Penny-Wise and Krugerand-Foolish.

Ayn Rand called it Atlas Shrugged.

Maybe the user doesnt want to use control arrays as the text boxes may not be related.In that case the first option will only work
