An application error occurs when a Visual Basic program dynamically creates a text box bound to a remote data control or a data control.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. This bug has been corrected in Visual Basic, version 5.0.


This section shows you how to reproduce the bug in Visual Basic 4.0 using a data control. You can substitute a remote data control for a data control and still reproduce the behavior.

Steps to Reproduce Behavior

  1. Start 32-bit Visual Basic 4.0 or, if it is already running, click New Project on the File menu.
  2. Add the following controls to Form1 and set the following properties to the appropriate controls:

       Control           Default Name     Property            Setting
       Command Button    Command1
       Data              Data1            DatabaseName        Biblio.mdb
                                          RecordSource        Authors
       Text Box          Text1            DataSource          Data1
                                          Index               0
  3. Copy the following code to the Code window of Form1:

          Option Explicit
          Private Sub Form_Load()
             Command1.Caption = "For Remote Data Control"
          End Sub
          Private Sub Command1_Click()
             Dim count As Integer
             Dim i As Integer
             Static lastcount As Integer
             count = 4
             If lastcount > 0 Then
                For i = lastcount - 1 To 1 Step -1
                   Unload text1(i)
                Next i
             End If
             If count > 0 Then
                For i = 1 To count - 1
                   Load text1(i)
                   text1(i).Left = text1(0).Left + (i * 1335)
                   text1(i).Visible = True
                Next i
             End If
             lastcount = count
          End Sub
  4. On the Run menu, click Start or press the F5 key to start the program. Each time you click the command button, three text boxes appear. On the third click, an application error occurs displaying one of the following messages and Visual Basic ends:

Windows NT 3.51:

being generated.VB32.exe.
