Control Toolbox Overview

Office 2010

The Control Toolbox identifies the controls that you can add to a Frame or a page of a form.

You can customize the Control Toolbox in many ways including the following:

  • Add pages to the Control Toolbox.

  • Move controls from one page in the Control Toolbox to another.

  • Rename Control Toolbox pages.

  • Add other controls, including ActiveX controls, to the Control Toolbox.

  • Copy modified controls from the form to the Control Toolbox. For example, OK and Cancel buttons are special types of CommandButtons. If you copy OK and Cancel templates to the Control Toolbox, you can quickly add them to other forms.

Note Note

When you add a control to a form by using the Control Toolbox, the control is not bound to a field.
