I haven't used it. I'd suggest you just add one to a blank form and write some sample code, somewhere like the Form_Click event, to display the various properties from it. That way you'll develop a feel for what sort of information it provides.

Assuming you have the appropriate option turned on, as soon as you type the control name in your code followed by a full-stop, VB should show you a list of all the properties.

Try this link. It may help. Or this one at Microsoft sounds quite good.

Sorry, it's often hard to tell from just a message or two, so we sometimes go into more detail than necessary.
