efficiency in writing forms

Hi

I was hoping someone might be able to help me learn how to script a little bit more efficiency.

I have a subform with ten check boxes contained in it.  I also have a seperate button.  What I want to do is when the button is clicked all the fillcolours of the checkboxes changed.  I can do this by just writing a line of script in the button for each check box but is there a more efficient way to do this?

Thanks

Darren

There are more generic ways of doing this ....like getting a list of objects on the page or subform and cycling through each object one by one and setting a property but ultimately you are accessing each object one by one and changing it. The method I mention can be made into a function and has the advantage of dealing with few or many objects. I have included a sample that locks all fields in a given container (in this case it is the entire form, but you can pass in a subform name and only that subform woudl be locked). It is not exactly what you want but it shodul give you the idea.
