Hi

instead of using the onChanged event for each one of the controls on a form, Somebody told me that there is a way to know if one of the controls on a form has changed !

Does sombody know about a property or control that gives you that information ?

You can set the Tag property of objects when you load a form.  For example to set the tag property when a form loads:

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim obj As Object

For Each obj In Me
    If TypeOf obj Is TextBox Then
        obj.Tag = obj.Text
    End If
Next
End Sub

Then you can check to see if that property has changed:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim obj As Object

For Each obj In Me
    If TypeOf obj Is TextBox Then
        If obj.Tag <> obj.Text Then
            MsgBox obj.Name & " has changed!"
        End If
    End If

Next
End Sub

Tweak the code to get it to fit your needs.

the datachange prop. doesn't work for all the controls but it's enough for me.

The code below show an example:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
   
    Dim ctrl As Control

    For Each ctrl In Screen.ActiveForm.Controls
        If TypeOf ctrl Is TextBox Then
            If ctrl.DataChanged = True Then
                MsgBox "Changed"
                ctrl.DataChanged = False
            End If
        End If
    Next
   
End Sub
