I am passing a variant to a procedure. In the procedure I want to find out what type of an object I have passed. I am passing textboxes, combo boxes and datepickers. Each are handled slightly differently in the procedure. I know the is a function to tell what kind of object something is. What is it and will it work in this case.

Sorry, VarType is not the right one in this case

Use crazyman's TypeOf

TypeName is probably better in this instance:

Public Sub DoSomething(ByRef Something As Variant)
Select Case TypeName(Something)
Case "TextBox"
Case "CommandButton"
Case "Timer
Case "FileListBox
Case "DirListBox
Case "DriveListBox
Case "HScrollBar
Case "VScrollBar
Case "PictureBox
Case "CommandButton
Case "Frame
Case "TextBox
Case "OptionButton
Case "CheckBox
Case "ComboBox
Case "ListBox
Case "HScrollBar
Case "TabStrip
Case "Toolbar
Case "TreeView
Case "ProgressBar
Case "StatusBar
Case "ImageList
Case "ListView
Case "ImageCombo
Case "MonthView
Case "FlatScrollBar
Case "UpDown
Case "DTPicker
Case "Adodc
Case "OLE
Case "Image
Case "Line
Case "Shape
Case "Label
End Select
End Sub
