Disabling All Controls on a Form

If you ever need to disable all the controls on a form you can loop through the control array and set each Enabled property to False with this code:
 Sub cmdArray_Click () 
Dim iLoop As Integer 

For iLoop = 0 To Me.Controls.Count - 1 
Me.Controls(iLoop).Enabled = False 
Next iLoop 
End Sub 
An alternatively is to set the Enabled property of the form to False, which effectively disables the entire form:
 Me.Enabled = False 
There is a side effect to the second method, however: because you can't use the control menu from the form, there is no way to close the form. You'll need to have another form unload this disabled form.
