Sorry that was too Brief.
accessing Form2["TextBox1"] will return a "Control" object so you can
access any general control properties like Width, Background, Name etc.
to access TextBox specific properties like Text, Placeholder etc use the
or you can make a function to access any control type use Object
Public Sub GetForm2Object(Name As String) As Object
Then something like this will work...
GetForm2Object("TextBox1").Text = "This text"
The plus side of using Object is it works for ANY control and it's
the down side is the auto-complete only works if you specifically set the
object return type (Ie TextBox).
Public Sub GetForm2TextBox(Name As String) As TextBox
if Form2[Name] Is TextBox Then Return Form2[Name]
Error.Raise(Name & " is not a text box")
