"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can't.
The way to do this is to put the textbox in a container control like a frame and then disable the container.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Text1.Enabled = False
Text1.BackColor = vbRed
End Sub

this works
