Forget str1.

Text1.text - The visible test
Text1.Backcolor
Text1.Left

To clarify you might say something like

str1 = Text1.Text
or
Text1.Text = str1

You can access the text1 control using the "controls" collection. For instance, if you have a form and a textBox named Text1, you can use something like this:

Me.Controls("Text1").Text = "ABC"

to access the properties of the textbox named "Text1". If you have that name on a string, you can use:

Me.Controls(myStringName).<Property>

Hope this helps....
