VB 6 Form Title

A VB 6 form has a title bar and the title of the form can be changed. In this article, we will talk about two ways to change the title of a form object.

  • Change title from property window.
  • Change title during run-time from code editor.

Change title using property window

When you select a VB 6 from in the IDE. You will notice that on left hand corner window , there is a small section called Property Window, which shows all the properties of the form object.

We can change the title and some other property of a form easily. This is most preferred way to things in VB 6.

Use Property window to change the Caption

Changing title during run-time

You saw how we can change the title and other properties using property window for the form. Now, we will see another method of changing the title for the form – code editor.

You can write some code that will change the title and other attributes of a form.For example, consider the following code to change the title to “Finance”.

Private Sub Form_Load()
 Me.Caption = "Finance"
 Me.BackColor = RGB(255, 120, 0)
End Sub

The above code will two things:

  • Change the title to "Finance".
  • Change the background color to "Orange".
