CustomControl.ObjectPalette Property (Access)

The ObjectPalette property specifies the palette in the application used to create an OLE object. Read/write Variant.

expression .ObjectPalette

expression A variable that represents a CustomControl object.

Microsoft Access sets the value of the ObjectPalette property to a String data type containing the palette information. You can use this setting to set the value of the PaintPalette property for a form or report.

If the application associated with the OLE object doesn't have an associated palette, the ObjectPalette property is set to an zero-length string.

The setting of the ObjectPalette property makes the palette of the application associated with the OLE object contained in a control available to the PaintPalette property of a form or report. For example, to make the palette used in Microsoft Graph available when you're designing a form in Microsoft Access, you set the form's PaintPalette property to the ObjectPalette value of an existing chart control.

Note Note

Windows can have only one color palette active at a time. Microsoft Access allows you to have multiple graphics on a form, each using a different color palette. The PaintPalette and PaletteSource properties let you specify which color palette a form should use when displaying graphics.
