on error

I have this code in my form. It is intended to go through each control and set its font.
Not all controls allow .fontname and use .font.name instead, so the on error lets the code go through each one.

This used to work, but now it doesn't

On Error Resume Next
For Each ctl In form.Controls
  With ctl
    .FontName = myFontName
    .Font.Name = myFontName
    .FontFixed.Name = myFontName
    .FontBold = myFontBold
    .Font.Bold = myFontBold
    .FontItalic = myFontItalic
    .Font.Italic = myFontItalic
  End With
Next

any ideas

I use VB6 SP3

Why don't you try to use the typeof syntax?


   If TypeOf MyControl Is CommandButton Then    
     do this

ElseIf TypeOf MyControl Is CheckBox Then
     do this

ElseIf TypeOf MyControl Is TextBox Then
     do this
End If

Just add it inside of the loop

Sure, but that requires more work.
The point is that the on error resume did work and should work.

Have you changed to 'break on all errors' in design mode.
