SYMPTOMS

When a UserControl tries to access members of the ParentControls collection when it is not in UserMode (AmbientProperties.UserMode = False), the following error may occur:

"VB5 caused an invalid page fault in module VB5.EXE at 0137:004650a3."

CAUSE

Visual Basic 5.0 is not releasing the interfaces correctly.

RESOLUTION

Install Visual Studio 97 Service Pack 2 (SP2). Alternately, use a For...Next loop instead of a For...Each loop when looping through the ParentControls collection to avoid the error.

MORE INFORMATION

Steps to Reproduce Behavior

  1. Create a new Visual Basic 5.0 ActiveX Control project.
  2. Add a Label control to the UserControl.
  3. Add the following code to the UserControl:

          Public Property Let TheLoop(bLoop As Boolean)
             Dim oObject As Object
             Dim sName As String
             For Each oObject In ParentControls
                 sName = oObject.Name
                 Debug.Print sName
             Next
          End Property
    
          Public Property Get TheLoop() As Boolean
    
          End Property
    
                            
  4. Select File...Add Project from the menu bar and add a Standard EXE project.
  5. Place an instance of UserControl1 (UserControl11) on Form1.
  6. Place three or four other controls on Form1.
  7. Select UserControl11 and change the TheLoop property.
  8. Repeat step 7. Note that an invalid page fault in Visual Basic results.
