Can you test if a form is loaded

Can you test if a form is loaded

Can you test if a form is loaded

I have a common subroutine which can be called from various points that I want to optionally update a status Label in a form only if it is loaded

ie I want to write code like

If Form2.Loaded Then
Form2.Label1 = "recalculating"
' do nothing
End If

but of course .Loaded is not a property!
If I just refer to Form2.Label1 then Form2 will start loading - which I don't want.

I'm sure it must be simple, but can't figure it out except by setting a global variable when I load Form2

RE: Can you test if a form is loaded

Examine the Forms collection

RE: Can you test if a form is loaded

Great - thanks.
I hadn't taken in the fact the Forms collection only has open forms in it.

RE: Can you test if a form is loaded

Maybe you don't even need to check if the Form is loaded?
Where do you have this 'common subroutine'? How do you call it? And what do you pass to it?
