Hello.

I have a question for you.

Is there a way, programming forms with Outlook 2002, to get a text box

length? I mean, the number of characters in it?

Thank you in advance.

Once you have a handle to the control or any associated Outlook property you

can get the value or text property of the textbox and use the Len() function

to get the length of the control contents.

Thank you Ken, this is what I was looking for.

I was trying with a Length property...

Another question: what I am doing is this.

I have a text box where I write a text. When I leave the text box and go in

another field, there is a PropertyChange event that write in another text box

the length of the first one.

The question is: is possible to update the second text box directly when

writing in the first one? Without leaving the field?

The property won't change until the field is exited. So that event won't

fire until then.
