    API Property Manager Page - Textbox - How to assign typed text in textbox to a variable?

    Carlos De La Cruz

      Hi - I'm currently working on building a Property Manager Page with a textbox control but, I'm struggling on how to pass on the text string typed by a user to a variable.

      For example, in the code below I tried to assign the text to a variable DimId in order to, for example, send a message to the user "The text you typed is:"


      Thank you for your help...



      ' Create Text Box

                caption = ""

                controlType = swPropertyManagerPageControlType_e.swControlType_Textbox

                alignment = swPropertyManagerPageControlLeftAlign_e.swControlAlign_Indent

                options = swAddControlOptions_e.swControlOptions_Enabled + swAddControlOptions_e.swControlOptions_Visible

                tip = "Enter the new Dimension ID"


                Set pm_RenameDim = pm_Group.AddControl(RenameDimID, controlType, caption, aligment, options, tip)


                Dim DimId As String


                'DimId = pm_RenameDim.Text


                MsgBox "DimId", vbExclamation, "Test", Empty, Empty
