Check if object is loaded.

Is there a function or any way to check if a form is loaded? For example, I want to set the TextBox on a form to "Hello World", but only if that form is already loaded. If I call anything on the form, like .Visible, it loads the form. I'm looking for something like a

IsLoaded(frmCheck as Form) as Boolean

Anyone know of a way I could do this? or a function that already exists? I'd prefer not to set Global flags for every form I want to do this on.

Can you not use Load()?

Ex:
Private Sub Form1_Load()

End Sub

Oh sorry. I don't think my question made sense. I actually want to check if a form is loaded from another form. Like, in form1 I want to say IsLoaded(form2).

try something along these lines:

Private Function IsLoaded(frmCheck as Form) as Boolean
   dim blnResult as Boolean
   Dim frm as Form
   for each frm in Forms
     if frm.Name = frmCheck.Name then
        blnResult = True
        Exit For
     end if
   Next
   IsLoaded = blnResult
end Function


this should get you what you need.
