The Text Box Defaults project is a Visual Basic 6.0 project that can be compiled into a Microsoft Publisher 2002 add-in toolbar. This toolbar allows the user to extract property settings from an existing text box and then create new text boxes with those settings. The project consists of two Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 files: DefTxtBx.dsr and DefTxtBx.vdp.
Compile the project into a dynamic linking library (.dll) and then install it as an add-in for Publisher. Once installed, the Default Text Box toolbar is available in the Publisher application. This add-in is presented as a Visual Basic project (rather than a compiled .dll) so that developers can build on and customize the code to suit their specific needs. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
