FindObject Function

Enables an object to be addressed at run-time as a string parameter through the object name.

For example, the following command:

MyObj.Prop1.Command = 5

corresponds to the command block:

Dim ObjVar as Object

Dim ObjProp as Object

ObjName As String = "MyObj"

ObjVar = FindObject( ObjName As String )

PropName As String = "Prop1"

ObjProp = FindPropertyObject( ObjVar, PropName As String )

ObjProp.Command = 5

This allows names to be dynamically created at run-time. For example:

"TextEdit1" to "TextEdit5" in a loop to create five control names.

FindObject( ObjName As String )


ObjName: String that specifies the name of the object that you want to address at run-time.
