What I&'m working on is a project that allows users to dynamically create, move, resize, and set properties of different controls on a form. What I need is two subs in a bas module.

The first sub will enumerate thru all the controls on the form and save the controls/properties to a text file. Similar to how VB writes the control properties to the .frm file. However, VB writes pictures to a separate file, the .frx file. I need everything to be in one single text file, including pictures for picture boxes. All of the properties per control need to be included.

The second sub will be the opposite and read from the same file and set the controls to the user&'s preferences when he reloads the project.

What this can not be:
1. Written to the registry
2. Path pointed to the picture file - The picture itself must be contained in the text file.
3. Binary

Attached is a sample project of controls that can be changed at runtime. If I run the compiled project I can make changes to the controls. What I want to see finished is the ability to save all property settings and have them appear as such when I reopen the project. Second I should be able to see the text file that the properties are saved to. Send working compiled example back to be considered.

Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete VISUAL BASIC source code of all work done.

Complete copyrights to all work purchased.

Windows XP, 2000, 98, & NT

I do not save control arrays and invsible controls.
And example has limitation:
1. I use tmp file for image saving/loading.
2. On images size
(just now it works with little images ~10KB) and I save NOT ALL properties.
I save coordinates (and width, height), caption (or text), picture.
Try to change caption (not in program) for menu items
in txt file with control savings.
And try to load savings from my file - I added item 'Load Control Properties'
in menu.
File has form's name and extension '.txt'.
Without problems I can add font properties,colors,visible, enabled and
indexes for control arrays. But ... Do you NEED ALL PROPERTY REALLY???
I ask because it is not simple task for ALL properties for ALL controls.
If you have any questions I will answer you
