Understanding the Control Properties Sheet

When you work with controls on a form, you will need to set many of the control properties through the Properties sheet, accessible via a control's shortcut menu. Different types of controls have somewhat different selections on their Properties sheets. Most control Properties sheets have three pages—Display, Value, and Validation. However, depending on the control type, some of the properties on one or more pages of the Properties sheet may be disabled.

For example, all the properties on a Label control's Value and Validation pages are disabled, since a Label control is not bound to a field. Most of the properties on a CommandButton control's Value and Validation pages are disabled, since CommandButtons are not bound either, except for a few special cases. The Properties sheet for a Frame or Line control is more limited: it has just a single page, Display, with all properties enabled. However, you can adjust more of a Frame or Line control's properties by opening its Advanced Properties sheet, as described in the following tip.
