Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Passing Controls to Subroutines/Functions

I am trying to pass a control as an object to a global sub to change the controls properties. How do you Set the parameter object as the control when passing as a parameter.
'Sub Procedure
Sub ChangeCaption(MyObject As Object)
  MyObject.Caption = "Test Complete"

End Sub
I call this function like this:
'Call Sub 
ChangeCaption(lblTest) 'Get Error Type Mismatch

It may just be a matter of changing your call line to this:

ChangeCaption lblTest 
or to
Call ChangeCaption(lblTest)
The rest of the code seems ok to me...I've used the same trick before in Visual Basic.
