Bulk-Update Controls on a Form

Tap the Controls property to make fast property changes.

When working with a form’s design, typically you set properties for controls with the property sheet. You can select single controls one by one and set properties, or you can select a handful of controls and update them together. When you use the latter method, the number of properties listed on the property sheet shrinks to just those that are common to all the selected controls.

This works fine for the most part—that is, setting properties to multiple controls isn’t difficult. But what if you had to see what a property is before deciding whether to change it? In this situation, the property sheet won’t help you. When multiple controls are selected, the property sheet can’t display individual control properties. It displays a property’s value if all the selected controls have the same value for the property, but that isn’t always the case.
