hi can any one help...

I would like to know how to put a default value for a text box I create.
I know that you can put it in the value property but what I am really trying
to do is:

I have create the text box in a vb com. so I can not access the text box
at that time. How can I check that
text box and add a value to that text box?

another thing I want to ask is how do you hide the text box. yet have it
still on the form

but this is not as important as the first one.
I'll shout the first person a beer that gives me a correct answer. please
email back using dtong@powerlan.com.au
