Module.ProcOfLine Property (Access)

The ProcOfLine property returns the name of the procedure that contains a specified line in a standard module or a class module. Read-only string.

expression .ProcOfLine(Line, pprockind)

expression A variable that represents a Module object.




Data Type





The number of a line in the module.




The type of procedure. See the Remarks section for the possible settings.

The ProcKind argument can be one of the following vbext_ProcKind constants:




A Property Get procedure.


A Property Let procedure.


A Sub or Function procedure.


A Property Set procedure.

For any given line number, the ProcOfLine property returns the name of the procedure that contains that line. Since comments and compilation constants immediately preceding a procedure definition are considered part of that procedure, the ProcOfLine property may return the name of a procedure for a line that isn't within the body of the procedure. The ProcStartLine property indicates the line on which a procedure begins; the ProcBodyLine property indicates the line on which the procedure definition begins (the body of the procedure).

Note that the pprockind argument indicates whether the line belongs to a Sub or Function procedure, a Property Get procedure, a Property Let procedure, or a Property Set procedure. To determine what type of procedure a line is in, pass a variable of type Long to the ProcOfLine property, then check the value of that variable.

Note Note

The ProcBodyLine property treats Sub and Function procedures similarly, but distinguishes between each type of Property procedure.

The following function procedure lists the names of all procedures in a specified module:
