The Properties pane

The Proj ect Explorer has already been described in Chapter 3. The Properties pane will contain a description of the object currently selected. In Figure 10.1, it is displaying for UserForml those properties that can be changed at design time. These include things like the background colour (BackColor), border colour (BorderColor), border style (BorderStyle), font, and many more. Notice that the properties all have default values - the ones that will apply if no changes are made to them during design time. Notice the properties Name and Caption. These are not the same thing, even though it may have the same value (see Figure 10.1). The Name is used by VBA programs to access the object, whereas the Caption refers to the text displayed on the Title bar.
