looping through controls

The following code does not sem to work

 Dim iObj As Control
 
 For Each iObj In Me.Controls
  If iObj.Tag = "hidden" Then
        iObj.Visible = False
  End If
 Next


in each controls tag I place the word "hidden". The controls will consist of labels, textboxes and pictureboxes.

Dim iObj As Control
 
 For Each iObj In Me.Controls
  debug.print iObj.Name
  If iObj.Tag = "hidden" Then
        iObj.Visible = False

AngelIII, yes, but its a long list ... I have the controls in an array (for each type of control).

pft ... I had misspelled "hidden" - only had one "d" and well what a time waster this has been ....

answer this query for the points ....

If I wanted to store the names of each control in an ini file - including its index, how would I do that ? I could then retrieve it later and then make the controls either hidden or visible depending on the value contained in the ini file ?
