I want to make a simple sub that changes the state of a check box similar to the code below:

Private Sub CheckTheBox(CurrentCheckBox As CheckBox)
If CurrentCheckBox.Value = 1 Then
CurrentCheckBox.Value = 0
Else
CurrentCheckBox.Value = 1
End If
End Sub

However, the name of the checkbox to be checked is dynamic and I do not know it design time. However, I can can have a string variable containg the name of the checkbox to be checked. How can I feed this string variable to the sub so that it knows which checkbox to set?

Thanks

hi...why dont you just pass the actual checkbvox to the sub

sub changeIt(byref chk as checkbox)

if chk.value = 0 then
chk.value = 1
else
chk.value = 0
end if

end sub

should work fine...

I cannot pass the actual check box because I am not always sending a particular checkbox. I can only pass the name of the checkbox, not the checkbox itself. And the name of the checkbox is determined during run time. I know there is a function in Javascript that does something like I want to do. It's called EVAL. But I don't know if there's anything similar in VB.

You should make an array of checkboxes indexing them, it's easier to find one of them and you know its name.

I thought about that approach but I cannot use it. Each check box is related to an Access DB field having the same name. I cannot use numbers in the DB. There's number of check boxes each having a name corresponding to a field in the database.
