	Public Sub LoopThroughControls(container As Control)

		For Each ctl As Control In container.Controls
			'Do your stuff here...
			If ctl.Controls.Count > 0 Then
				LoopThroughControls(ctl)
			End If
			'... or here
		Next

	End Sub

Open in new window

A form is a Control, so you can send your form to that method, and it will recursively calls itself back when you encounter a Control that contains other Controls.
