User Controls and referencing them

Hi there, I have a user control called Rate.  Rate is many text boxes, and I have a public function within rate called get_Rate which returns an integer relating to the values in all the text boxes.  i.e. if i know the rate_ID i know the values of all the boxes in the Rate control.

On any given form many instances of the control can be created programatically.

I am at a point in my code where i need to cycle through all the controls on a page, the user control and text boxes, combos etc.

    'Standard structure for recording an entry
    Public Structure TrackData
        Dim Ref As Integer
        Dim Data As String
    End Structure

    Public Sub Capture(ByRef pArray As ArrayList, ByRef pPanel As Panel)
        'Put all data into an array as a benchmark for checking against later.
        pArray.Clear() 'delete everything from current array
        Dim td As New TrackData
        Dim ctrl As Control
        For Each ctrl In pPanel.Controls
            If TypeOf ctrl Is TextBox Or TypeOf ctrl Is ComboBox Then
                td.Ref = ctrl.Handle
                td.Data = ctrl.Text
                pArray.Add(td)
            End If
            If TypeOf ctrl Is Rate Then
                td.Ref = ctrl.Handle
                td.Data = ctrl.get_Rate()
            End If
        Next
    End Sub

The piece of code errors on ctrl.get_Rate.  This is a public function however!

How do i get around this??

Many thanks, 500 points on offer!

Hi DavidGreenfield,

td.Data = Ctype(ctrl,Rate).get_Rate()

Perhaps

Yes that works!  I hadn't realised you could do that for a user control!

Many thanks, 500 points on the way!
