0 HappyMe 8 Years Ago I'm using verion 3.5 of the .NET framework I have a form with a number of controls including text boxes. All my text boxes are named in the style txb_name, can I search for controls with txb in their name? The following code doesn't work: For Each tb As TextBox In Me.Controls.Find("txb", True) 'do something with tb next I tried using OfType but that gives the error: 'OfType is not a member of System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlCollection' any ideas? TIA Hx P.S. I wanted to discuss this in relation to a similar post, but apparently that isn't allowed on this forum. vb.net Edited 8 Years Ago by __avd: Corrected [code] tags.
