Paste this code on you button. This generates a random color.

Red = Int(Rnd * 255)
Green = Int(Rnd * 255)
Blue = Int(Rnd * 255)

Form1.BackColor = RGB(Red, Green, Blue)

Private sub cmdEdit_click ( ) what is the right code to work the edit buton

You will probably want to be able to update some value of some field when doing database programming. This is done with Edit and Update. We will try to change the value of the "Phone" field by editing the text in the text box and clicking a button.
Put a command button on the form and name it "cmdUpdate". Then copy the following code to the project.
Private Sub cmdUpdate_Click()

rsMyRS!Phone = txtPhone.Text

End Sub
Could it be that simple? Yes. This changes the phone number of our selected person. Or to put it technically: This changes the value of the "Phone" field of our current record. Imagine the current record being a set of boxes, with a field in each box. T he Edit method takes the lid off all of the boxes and Update puts them back on. When we write rsMyRS!Phone = txtPhone.Text we replace the content of the "Phone" box with the content in the text box.

    How to disable command button in visual basic

  • tep 1 Open Visual Basic and select "Standard Exe" to create a new project.
  • Step 2 Add a button by clicking the square button tool on the right, and then clicking and dragging in the main window.
  • Step 3 Click the button once to open the "Properties" window on the right. Select the "(Name)" property, and type "myCmdButton" as the name.
  • Step 4 Double-click the button to open up the code-view window. Type the following in the white space under "Private Sub myCmdButton_Click()":
    myCmdButton.enabled = False;
  • Step 5 Click the blue "Run" button on the top toolbar of Visual Basic. Because you set enabled to "false" in the previous step, you will see your button grayed out, and nothing will happen when you click it.
