Visual Basic Reference
Returns the bound object, or another object as determined by the bound control. Read-only at run time.
The object is an object expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.
The TargetObject property provides access in the Format and Unformat events to the bound control's properties, methods, and events. If the bound control passes an object other than the control itself, you can use its properties, methods, and events to manipulate data or navigate up the hierarchy to other objects in the control's object model.
