    Is it possible to somehow type directly into a label or textbox (without needing to type in the property page Caption or Text property) in the End-User designer?

    Say if a user is designing a report with paragraphs of text, e.g. a form letter.  It will be very difficult to type all that into the property page, and even more so to go back and edit it.

    Thank you for your post. Please try the following recommendations to meet your requirements.

    1) Trap the TypeName of the object dropped into the designer in the LayoutChanged Event.

    2) If it is field or label you can set the text or caption according to an inputbox to enter data from the user.

    Please check the attached sample in this regard and let us know if it doesn’t meet your requirements.
