Setting multiple properties whilst only referring to the control once

    I don't know the correct syntax but instead of -

    TextBox1.FontSize=10
    TextBox1.FontColor=cWhite
    TextBox1.Color=cBlue
    TextBox1.Text="Hello"

    I'd like to see this -

    TextBox1
    .FontSize=10
    .FontColor=cWhite
    .Color=cBlue
    .Text="Hello"​

    It would save me a considerable amount of time and I think it also leads to a cleaner looking code.

    I have only just landed, and seen this.
    Yes a great idea, seconded. It is normally called 'With'

    With Table
    Colwidth("fred")=0
    etc
    etc
    End with
