Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Accessing the Container of an Object

How do I find the parents of a control?

All VFP objects have a property called "parent," which is an object reference to the container of the object.

For example, let's say you have a form with a container on it, and on the container you have a command button. Let's say that you want to turn the background color of the container that the button is on to red by clicking the command button. You could put the following code into the Click event of the command button:

this.parent.BackColor = RGB(255,0,0)
