AccessObjectProperties Object (Access)
Published: July 16, 2012
The AccessObjectProperties collection contains all of the custom AccessObjectProperty objects of a specific instance of an object. These AccessObjectProperty objects (which are often just called properties) uniquely characterize that instance of the object.
Use the AccessObjectProperties collection in Visual Basic or in an expression to refer to properties of the CurrentProject, CodeProject, or AccessObject object. For example, you can enumerate the AccessObjectProperties collection to set or return the values of properties of an individual report.
The AccessObjectProperties collection isn't accessible for objects derived from the CurrentData object (for example, CurrentData.AllTables!Table1). For objects derived in this manner, you can only access their built-in properties by direct calls to the desired property (for example, CurrentData.AllTables!Table1.Name).
To add a user-defined property to an existing instance of an object, first define its characteristics and add it to the collection with the Add method. Referencing a user-defined AccessObjectProperty object that has not yet been appended to an AccessObjectProperties collection will cause an error, as will appending a user-defined AccessObjectProperty object to an AccessObjectProperties collection containing an AccessObjectProperty object of the same name.
You can use the Remove method to remove user-defined properties from the AccessObjectProperties collection.
A built-in or user-defined AccessObjectProperty object is associated only with the specific instance of an object. The property isn't defined for all instances of objects of the selected type.
To refer to a built-in or user-defined AccessObjectProperty object in a collection by its ordinal number or by its Name property setting, use any of the following syntax forms:
CurrentProject.AllForms("Form1").Properties(0) CurrentProject.AllForms("Form1").Properties("name") CurrentProject.AllForms("Form1").Properties![name]
With the same syntax forms, you can also refer to the Value property of a AccessObjectProperty object. The context of the reference will determine whether you are referring to the AccessObjectProperty object itself or the Value property of the AccessObjectProperty object.
Properties in the AccessObjectProperties collection are not stored and can be lost when the object they are associated with is checked in or out using the Source Code Control add-in.
