I have a form with 3 frames with numerous text boxes and combo boxes on them.

My code loops through each control on each frame on the form and captures the value of the text property of each textbox. Except that for all but 2 of the textboxes, the value of the text property is an empty string, irrespective of what the user has input into the textbox.

Here is the code...

PrivateSub CaptureScreen(ByRef rarySQLFields(,), _

ByRef raryOraFields(,))



Dim ctrl As Control

Dim grpctrl As Control

Dim intPos AsInteger

ReDim rarySQLFields(18, 1)

Try

ForEach ctrl InMe.Controls

If ctrl.GetType.Name = "GroupBox" Then

ForEach grpctrl In ctrl.Controls

SelectCase grpctrl.GetType.Name

Case "TextBox"

SelectCase grpctrl.Name

Case "txtFEID"

rarySQLFields(2, 0) = grpctrl.Text

rarySQLFields(2, 1) = "@FE"

Case "txtRMGRef"

rarySQLFields(4, 0) = grpctrl.Text

rarySQLFields(4, 1) = "@ClientRef"

Case "txtCName"

rarySQLFields(12, 0) = grpctrl.Text

rarySQLFields(12, 1) = "@Name"

Case "txtCWork"

rarySQLFields(14, 0) = grpctrl.Text

rarySQLFields(14, 1) = "@POW"

Case "txtCOcc"

rarySQLFields(13, 0) = grpctrl.Text

rarySQLFields(13, 1) = "@Occupation"

Case "txtCAccidentDt"

If grpctrl.Text <> "" Then

rarySQLFields(15, 0) = Format(CDate(grpctrl.Text), "mm/dd/yyyy")

Else

rarySQLFields(15, 0) = ""

EndIf

rarySQLFields(15, 1) = "@AccidentDate"

Case "txtCNature" 'nature of accident

rarySQLFields(16, 0) = grpctrl.Text

rarySQLFields(16, 1) = "@AccidentNature"

Case "txtType" 'type of injury

rarySQLFields(17, 0) = grpctrl.Text

rarySQLFields(17, 1) = "@Injury"

Case "txtPCode"

rarySQLFields(18, 0) = grpctrl.Text

rarySQLFields(18, 1) = "@PostCode"

Case "txtBPRef"

rarySQLFields(11, 0) = grpctrl.Text

rarySQLFields(11, 1) = "@BPRef"

Case "txtCSettlementDt"

If grpctrl.Text <> "" Then

rarySQLFields(10, 0) = Format(CDate(grpctrl.Text), "mm/dd/yyyy")

Else

rarySQLFields(10, 0) = ""

EndIf

rarySQLFields(10, 1) = "@SettlementDate"

Case "txtClosedDt"

If grpctrl.Text <> "" Then

rarySQLFields(9, 0) = Format(CDate(grpctrl.Text), "mm/dd/yyyy")

Else

rarySQLFields(9, 0) = ""

EndIf

rarySQLFields(9, 1) = "@ClosedDate"

Case "txtOpenedDt"

If grpctrl.Text <> "" Then

rarySQLFields(8, 0) = Format(CDate(grpctrl.Text), "mm/dd/yyyy")

Else

rarySQLFields(8, 0) = ""

EndIf

rarySQLFields(8, 1) = "@OpenedDate"

CaseElse

Debug.WriteLine("Missed " & grpctrl.Name)

EndSelect

Case "ComboBox"

SelectCase grpctrl.Name

Case "cboClientID"

If IsNothing(raryOraFields) Then

ReDim raryOraFields(1, 1)

Else

intPos = GetPosition(raryOraFields)

If intPos < 0 Then

Err.Raise(999, "frmDetails.CaptureScreen", "Error gather search criteria")

EndIf

EndIf

raryOraFields(intPos, 0) = grpctrl.Text

raryOraFields(intPos, 1) = "CLIENT_MATTER.CLIENT_ID"

rarySQLFields(1, 0) =
CInt(grpctrl.Text)

rarySQLFields(1, 1) = "@ClientID"

Case "cboMatterNum" '0

If IsNothing(raryOraFields) Then

ReDim raryOraFields(1, 1)

Else

intPos = GetPosition(raryOraFields)

If intPos < 0 Then

Err.Raise(999, "frmDetails.CaptureScreen", "Error gather search criteria")

EndIf

EndIf

raryOraFields(intPos, 0) = grpctrl.Text

raryOraFields(intPos, 1) = "CLIENT_MATTER.MATTER_NUM"

rarySQLFields(0, 0) = grpctrl.Text

rarySQLFields(0, 1) = "@MatterNum"

Case "cboClass"

rarySQLFields(6, 0) = grpctrl.Text

rarySQLFields(6, 1) = "@ClassCode"

Case "cboBCodes"

rarySQLFields(5, 0) = grpctrl.Text

rarySQLFields(5, 1) = "@BudgetCode"

Case "cboClientName"

rarySQLFields(3, 0) = grpctrl.Text

rarySQLFields(3, 1) = "@RMGClient"

CaseElse

Debug.WriteLine("Missed " & grpctrl.Name)

EndSelect

Case "NumericUpDown"

rarySQLFields(7, 0) = nudProbability.Value

rarySQLFields(7, 1) = "@Probability"

EndSelect

Next grpctrl

EndIf

Next

Catch ex As Exception

Debug.WriteLine(ex.Message)

EndTry



EndSub



I've run out of time on my project and need to resolve this issue ASAP. Has anyone experienced anything similar?


Many Thanks

I don't see a glaring mistake. However, I would suggest that it would be more efficient to simply set the array values with the value of the control directly instead of looping through each control and checking for the name of the control. As an example:

VB.NET:
rarySQLFields(2, 0) = txtFEID.Text
rarySQLFields(2, 1) = "@FE"

rarySQLFields(4, 0) = txtRMGRef.Text
rarySQLFields(4, 1) = "@ClientRef"

rarySQLFields(12, 0) = txtCName.Text
rarySQLFields(12, 1) = "@Name"
