New Objects at runtime!!!

How can an event can be fired for an object that is loaded during runtime...?

For example,

Supposing I have a commandbutton...
When that command button is clicked, a textbox should be added, which I do like this:

private sub command1_Click()
form1.controls.add "VB.Textbox","Text1"
form1.controls("Text1").visible=true
form1.controls("Text1").top=1
form1.controls("Text1").left=10
end sub

So, with that, I have a function....

public function TrueorFalse(byval int as integer) as Boolean

if int>10 then
 TrueOrFalse=false
else
TrueorFalse=true
end if
End Function

I want this function to be called when the user enters some text in the textbox....How can this be done?  How can we track and fire the text1_Change event in this case?

Thanks in advance...!!

Use the WithEvents keyword to declare a module-level object variable. If you want to sink events for different types of controls, declare the variable As VBControlExtender, otherwise simply use As TextBox.

Example:

--- code starts here ---

Option Explicit

Private WithEvents mCtl As TextBox

Private Sub command1_Click()
    Set mCtl = Form1.Controls.Add("VB.Textbox", "Text1")
    With mCtl
        .Visible = True
        .Move 1, 10
    End With
End Sub

Private Sub mCtl_Change()
    Debug.Print "Change"
    ' Call your validation function here
End Sub

--- code ends here ---

Hope this helps,

Michel

I'm a little overwhelmed by your gratitude, shankarkrupa. It really isn't such an obscure technique, you know. Just search the MSDN for the WithEvents and VBControlExtender keywords, you'll find more examples.

Anyway, glad I could help so quickly!
