Change the Properties of a Control

Properties control various characteristics of a control such as its size, shape, color, label, and default values. You can set the properties of a control in design mode by using the Properties window.

To change the property of a control

  1. On the form, select the desired control.
  2. Open the Properties window using F4 if it is not already open.
  3. In the Properties window, find the property you want to change and select the current value for that property.
  4. Change the value to the new desired value for the property.

You can also change the property of a control at runtime by writing code to access that property. See the Microsoft documentation for more information on changing the property of a control at runtime.
