DlgEnable (function)


DlgEnable(ControlName$ | ControlIndex)


Returns True if the specified control is enabled; returns False otherwise.


Disabled controls are dimmed and cannot receive keyboard or mouse input.

The ControlName$ parameter contains the name of the .Identifier parameter associated with a control in the dialog box template. A case-insensitive comparison is used to locate the specific control within the template. Alternatively, by specifying the ControlIndex parameter, a control can be referred to using its index in the dialog box template (0 is the first control in the template, 1 is the second, and so on).

You cannot disable the control with the focus.


This example checks the status of a checkbox at the end of the dialog procedure and notifies the user accordingly.

Function DlgProc(ControlName$,Action%,SuppValue%) As Integer

  If Action% = 2 Then
    'Enable the next three controls.
    If DlgControlId(ControlName$) = 2 Then
      For i = 3 to 5
       DlgEnable i,DlgValue("CheckBox1")
      Next i
      DlgProc = 1  'Don't close the dialog box.
    End If
  ElseIf Action% = 1 Then
    'Set initial state upon startup
    For i = 3 to 5
      DlgEnable i,DlgValue("CheckBox1")
    Next i
  End If


  If  DlgEnable(i) = True Then
    MsgBox "You do not have the required disk space.",ebExclamation,"Insufficient Disk Space"
  End If
End Function
