The Designer Object

Some VBComponents (such as UserForms) present both code and a graphical interface to the developer. Whereas the code is accessed through the CodeModule and CodePane objects, the Designer object gives you access to the graphical part. In the standard versions of Office, UserForms are the only components with a graphical interface for you to control. However, the Developer Editions included in Office 2000 and XP included a number of other items (such as the Data Connection Designer) that have graphical interfaces; these too are exposed to us through the Designer object and may be available in Office 2007 if you upgraded from one of those earlier versions.

These are the main objects that you'll be using throughout the rest of this chapter, as you create the VBE Toolkit Add-in.
