I have a very simple test form that I'm working with and I'm trying to pull the type of controls that are on the form. This is just me playing around with no specific results that I'm get.
I have a function that cycles through the controls pulls the type and then to IF statements. The only way I can get the function to work is to call if from the $frm_test_load function. If I try to call it from another point in the script its as though the form doesn't exist.
The code below doesn't work.
Double-click the code block to select all.
#TODO: Initialize Form Controls here
$Label2.Text = $frm_test.Controls.Count
foreach($control in $frm_test.controls)
if ($control.gettype().name -eq 'richtextbox')
$control.enabled = $false
elseif($control.gettype().name -eq 'button')
$control.visible = $false
$frm_test.Controls['statusbar1'].Text = "working..."
$textstring = $textstring + $control.gettype().name + "`n"
$Label2.Text = $textstring

You can normally execute code only in an event in a form. Once the form is displayed only event code is active. This is by design.
