Disabling All Controls on a Form

Disabling All Controls on a Form

If you ever need to disable all the controls on a form you can loopthrough the control array and set each Enabled property to Falsewith 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 toFalse, which effectively disables the entire form:

 Me.Enabled = False 

There is a side effect to the second method, however: because youcan’t use the control menu from the form, there is no way to close theform. You’ll need to have another form unload this disabled form.
