I really need that feature too. I often used that feature in vb days.
But this days of gambas, i have to modify a lot for gambas' lack of name
in vb i can use :
me.controls("txt" & rs.field(counter).name).text=rs.field(counter)
that means i can assign the value from every recordset to any controls
in the form that has name txt+fieldname.
I can do that for control in other form, still in single line (just
change the me into form name)
in gambas i use a lot of lines.
i have to scan all controls in the form, when found controls with tag
contain the name of the controls, then i can continue assign the values.
thats not just it. If i need the tag for other use, then i need assign a
class corresponding to the control tag, just to get the real control tag.
And for the control in a tab in another form, i have to scan each form
that has the proper tag, then i have to scan each tab that has proper
tag, then i have to scan each control in the tab that has proper tag.
i would appreciate a lot if gambas has this feature.
