Accessing the Container of an Object

Accessing the Container of an Object

Question:
How do I find the parents of a control?

Answer:
All VFP objects have a property called “parent,” which is an object reference to thecontainer of the object.

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

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