FindPropertyObject Function

Enables objects to be addressed at run-time as a string parameter using 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.

FindPropertyObject( ObjVar, PropName As String )


ObjVar: Object variable that you want to dynamically define at run-time.
