Determining Object Type

Determining Object Type

Question:
How can I determine the type of object that I click, using only one general procedure? What I mean is that I want to have several objects of any type in a form and by clicking them, I’d like this procedure to tell me what type of object I clicked on.

Answer:
You can use this statement to see if, for example, a control is a text box.

Sub CheckObject (inObject as Object)   if TypeOf(inObject) Is TextBox then      ‘ code to use if a control is a textbox   end if
Note that you cannot combine conditions when using a TypeOf operator. You have to list each one out separately.
