Vision Basic Language

Vision Basic Language

I bought software to create a web sight. There is an ActiveX option on the "insert" menu. I am trying to create a situation in which the text typed into one box, will automatically show up in another box at the same time. To make that happen, I have to highlight the text box, open the ActiveX window, and enter a unique "ID" for the control, enter a "name" for the control, and enter a "value." There are also "code source" and "date source" boxes available. I have figured out that the "ID" can be anything like %1 for the first box and %2 for the second box. But I do not know what the "name," "value," "code scource," and "date scource" are. Can you help me? My software instruction book says to use Visual Basic language.


RE: Vision Basic Language

text boxes, along with a lot of other controls, have a Change event. This event gets called whenever the contents of the text box are changed.

So - say you have two text boxes t1 and t2. T2 has to shadow t1.

Put the following code in the Change event for t1:

t2.text = t1.text
