    I have many checkbox views in designer that I would like to access with code and it would be trivial if I could use a variable in a for loop to change their text color or similar property
    ie cb1, cb2, cb3 could be accessed easily in a for loop rather than repeating the code addnausium for each checkbox, does that make sense?

    put the objects into a list after you loaded the layout.
    This has discussed a lot of times in forum. Try the forumsearch

    Add the views to a list if you are adding them in the designer or if you are adding them in code, just array them

    dim checkbox(10as checkbox

    For n = 0 to checkbox ().lenght -1
    Checkbox(n).checked = False
