Is there a way to code the backcolor property for all my controls and forms (about 25 or so) to all be one color on the startup form rather than having to go into each form and click on each control and changing it?

try the on load event for the form...

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim c As Control
   
    For Each c In Me.Controls
        On Error GoTo eh1
        If c.properties("backcolor") Then c.BackColor = vbRed
        On Error GoTo 0
    Next
eh1:
    If Err.Number = 438 Then Resume Next
End Sub

At Run-Time or at Design Time?
At Run-Time:yes, It is possible, and easy.

At Design Time:... hmm...not sure. Just a click-click here and a click-click there... click everywhere...
