referencing parent control

I've written a control which is invisible at runtime.

The control itself has nothing but a label on it.

The user interface, which can be invoked by the parent application, consists of two forms within the control.

I need to be able to fire events from code on one of those forms, and to access the control's custom properties. To do this I need to reference the control itself from a constituent form - how is this done?

TIA

If I understand right what you need, you should do the following:

In the form that needs the reference, do the following:

1. Add a private variable of the type your referenced element is of:
private myControl as myControlElement (or whatever)

2. Add a Property to the Form:
Public Property Let TheControl (tControl as myControlElement)
Set myControl = tControl
End Property

3. From somewhere in your Program, use:
Form1.TheControl = TheControlWhichIsVisibleToTheProgramFromHere
