show vba variable in a form

How can I make a textbox on a form show a "public"-variable?
I made a code which generates de value of a variable (let's say "intTest". But now I want to show this variable on a form. I hoped that i could just refer to it by giving the name "intTest" at the properties of a textbox.

Thanks for your time

Re: show vba variable in a form

you can have public variable... just define it out of any sub or function with PUBLIC word


PUBLIC strMyText as string


if you have a let's say text box on the form and you want to put that value into in....

use me.txtMyText.Value = strMyText when you open the form or when you hit the button

the ther way is to use function, which returns the value

Public Function ReturnMyValue() As String
ReturnMyValue = strMystring
End Function

and use the function as data source for that field
