'I have defined the following sub in Module1
__________________________________________
Public Sub labelloader(objname As Label)

With objname
.Caption = "Hello"
End With

End Sub
______________________

If I call

Private Sub Form_Load()
Module1.labelloader (Label1)
End Sub

on my form I have a label called Label1

-----------------------

but on loading I am getting a type mismatch error. The pupose of above sub is that I need to dynamically load the names of labels on runtime instead of me typing there names everywhere in the design. I also need to know a function that splits a string based on a delimiter like * and stores it in an array. Please help

Change the call to this:

Call Module1.labelloader(Label1) 'With Call keyword

=or=

Module1.labelloader Label1  'Without the parenthesis

Hope it helps!

P.S

Since the function is Public, you do not need to use Module1...

Call labelloader(Label1)

=or=

labelloader Label1

Change it to:

Private Sub Form_Load()
 
Call labelloader(Label1)

End Sub


For the second use the split function

Dim NewArray
Dim MyString as String
MyString = "12345*67890"
NewArray = Split(MyString,"*")
' NewArray(0) now contains "12345"
' NewArray(1) contains "67890"

try the following argument in the function
Public Sub labelloader(objname As control)

With objname
.Caption = "Hello"
End With

End Sub

private sub Form_Load()
  labelloader(me.label1)
end sub

Public Sub labelloader(Byref objname As Label) should help

i dont suggest the 'As Control' technique since it leads to ambiguity and more memory usage...

As for the function you need,Split is the one you're looking for.


Dim myArray() As String
Dim mystring As String

mystring = "Try*this*function"
myArray = Split(mystring, "*")

hi for second part of ur question..


Dim myArray
Dim mystring As String

mystring = "Try*this*function"
myArray = Split(mystring, "*")

actually split returns a variant array...
..so if u give

Dim myArray() As String
it will give an error here..

try using this code...

Use object

ie

im module

Public Sub labelloader(objname As Object)
Dim lbl As Object

For Each lbl In objname
    With lbl
        .Caption = "Hello"
    End With
Next
End Sub


in form

Private Sub Form_Load()
labelloader Label1
End Sub
