On a complex VB6 form, how could I change a control (textbox etc) container from one container (e.g SSTab or Frame) to a different container on same form at run-time?
The Container Property seems to be read only....

It works fine for me...

I put a CommandButton (Command1) and two Frames (Frame1, Frame2) on my form.  Then I placed a TextBox (Text1) into Frame1.

    Private Sub Command1_Click()
        Set Text1.Container = Frame2
    End Sub

When I click the button, the TextBox moved from Frame1 to Frame2.

You said you have a "complex VB6" form.  Could you explain in more detail?...
