Storing Control Properties

Storing Control Properties

Question:
I need to store a full text box in a data base, so that later I can recover it with all its properties; is that possible or do I have to save each property ONE BY ONE?

Answer:
What I would recommend doing is writing a routine that extracts all theproperties from a control and creates some sort of text-based format for itso it can be saved in the database. For instance, you could save theproperties like this:

BackColor: blahForeColor: blah
You can simply build a big long text string and store it in a memo field.You still have to store each property, but the routine you build loopsthrough all the properties of the control and saves each one to thedatabase.
