How do I dim the Control type?


Dim ctl As control
Error 30 Type 'control' is not defined. 


Dim ctl As System.windows.forms.control
Error 30 Type 'System.windows.forms.control' is not defined.

Import the System.Windows.Forms namespace.
add the reference to your project. "System.Windows.Forms"

Ah, the add reference is what I had missed.

Thank you!
