Read .caption From A Button
I want my program to read from a label. so that when i click on a button it reads its caption and changes somthing in a modual.
I have this modual
Public Type DataType TodayMonth As String TodayMonthNum As Integer TodayDay As Integer username As String ChosenMonthNum As Integer ChosenMonth As String ChosenDay As Integer TotalUsers As IntegerEnd TypePublic Data(0) As DataType
and this is the code inside each button
Dim TodayDate As Integer TodayDate = FriA.Caption Data(0).TodayDay = TodayDate
but when i run the program i get this error.
Run Time Error "424":
So can anyone see a problem with my code, or is it that you can't read captions this way, and if thats the case how do i read captions?

Command Button Caption
Can a command button caption have multiple lines?
I am trying to read in a text file or a rich text file at run time and assign the text to a text box and a command button. If the user clicks the text box its visible property becomes false and the command button becomes visible.(these two items cover the exact same space) This is giving me a selected unselected state. The command button has a different look then the rich text box. I would like to be able for them both to have the same text. Is this possible? I do not need rich text I just used the rich text box to start with.
thank you for your time and have a good day

Howto Let Button.Caption Countdown From 3 To 0.
What i'm trying is to get the caption of a button to show the waittime left.
I have tried multiple things:
Button.Caption = 3
'Time 3 seconds of delay
While DateDiff("s", start, Now) < 3
Button.Caption = Button.Caption - (DateDiff("s", start, Now) / 1000)
Button.Caption = "Send"
and with a left$ but then it just removes the first number instead of the last 3:
Button.Caption = 3
'Time 3 seconds of delay
While DateDiff("s", start, Now) < 3
Button.Caption = Button.Caption - (Left$(DateDiff("s", start, Now) / 1000, 1))
Button.Caption = "Send"
In these both cases i don't see a countdown from 3 to 0 but i see a countdown with 100th's of seconds.. how can i fix it so it will only show me seconds?

Centering The Caption Of A Command Button
Hi everyone. I've got as problem with the appearance of the captions of my command buttons. For some reason, it's left-justifying them instead of centering, but only if the caption is more than one line.
In other words, if the caption is "NEW EMPLOYEE", and I make the button wide enough to all fit on one line, it's centered, but if I narrow the button to force it onto two lines, it appears as :-
instead of as :-
I can't find an 'allignment' property like there is for a label or text box, so what can I do?

Option Button && Caption Problem
I am trying to find an alternative way to display this. What I am having trouble with is the display on the form. When I click the command button, it does not give the correct answer, but when I click it twice it does.
I tested it out thinking the calculation was incorrect but, if I make the rem line active, it will give me the correct calculation with 1 click of the button, but without the " **** payment will be " line before it.
Private Sub cmdCompute_Click()
If optYearly.Value = True Then
PaymentsPerYear = 1
lblPayment.Caption = "Yearly payment will be " & _ Format$(Payment, "Currency")
PaymentsPerYear = 12
lblPayment.Caption = "Monthly payment will be " & _ Format$(Payment, "Currency")
''lblPayment.Caption = Format$(Payment, "Currency")
