Easy Updates of Property Window for Multiple Controls

When you’re editing a series of controls, you can multiselect them either by clicking while holding down the Control button or by “lassoing” them with the mouse, then enter the appropriate data in the Properties window, and apply it to all selected controls.

But what about those times when you need to edit the properties for several controls, but each needs different data? You’re in for a tedious session of clicking on the controls one by one and hopping back and forth between the Form window and Properties window.

Unless, of course, you’re in on a dirty little secret: When you click on a control-or a form-you can simply start typing! As soon as you type the first key, VB automatically switches focus to the Properties window and starts entering your keystrokes into the same property that you edited in the previous control.
