I was wondering what setting, if it exists, that allows you to change specific properties for all the controls within a custom control. In other word if I want all the sub-controls to be bold...how do I set the custom control to reflect that?

Thanks!

If by custom control you mean a UserControl, then the following explain how to do it.

For some properties, such as the Font, if you set the UserControl Font in design, the controls you put on it will have the same font by default. You can also change the property in the code, and all controls that have the default Font will follow the change.

For other properties, you will have to loop through the controls with code such as the following:

            For Each ctl As Control In Me.Controls
                  ctl.Text = "New Text"
            Next
