Hi All,

If I have 10 textboxes on a form as well as two pictureboxes

3 are located in  picturebox1, 3 are located in picturebox2

4 are outside of the pictureboxes and are just on the form

How can I enable and disable the textboxes inside picturebox1 using a for ... next loop ?

Hi dwe0608,

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    EnableDisableTextboxes False, Picture1
End Sub

Private Sub EnableDisableTextboxes(ByVal Status As Boolean, ByRef ContainedIn As PictureBox)
    Dim txt As Control
    For Each txt In Me.Controls
        If txt.Container Is ContainedIn Then txt.Enabled = False
    Next
End Sub

For example, just call as EnableDisableTextBoxes True,Picture1  to enable and ... False,Picture1 to disable

For example

And if I wanted to enable all textboxes - the following code marked by  ?? would be helpful

Private Sub EnableDisableTextboxes(ByVal Status As Boolean, optional ByRef ContainedIn As PictureBox = nothing)
    Dim txt As Control
    For Each txt In Me.Controls
       if not Ismissing(ContainedIn) and ?? not containedin is nothing ?? then
           If txt.Container Is ContainedIn Then txt.Enabled = False
       else
           txt.Enabled = False
       end if
    Next
End Sub

Tim already give you the solution, the only thing he should use status to set the enabled flag

ie.


Private Sub EnableDisableTextboxes(ByVal Status As Boolean, Optional ByRef ContainedIn As PictureBox = Nothing)
    Dim txt As Control
    For Each txt In Me.Controls
       If Not IsMissing(ContainedIn) And Not ContainedIn Is Nothing Then
           If txt.Container Is ContainedIn Then txt.Enabled = Status
       End If
    Next
End Sub

i got what u want darrin...

here's your code

Private Sub EnableDisableTextboxes(ByVal Status As Boolean, Optional ByRef ContainedIn As PictureBox = Nothing)
    Dim txt As Control
    For Each txt In Me.Controls
        If ContainedIn Is Nothing Then
            txt.Enabled = Status
        Else
            If txt.Container Is ContainedIn Then txt.Enabled = Status Else txt.Enabled = Not Status
        End If
    Next
End Sub

if call the function in the following way:

to disable textboxes contained in a specific picture box u call:
EnableDisableTextboxes False, Picture1 'false because u want to disable them, if u want to re-enable them u just set this to true

if u want to disable all textboxes u just call
EnableDisableTextboxes False 'or True to re-enable all textboxes on your form

hope this helps

cheers,

Dan
