The Value tab of the Properties dialog box contains a number of settings that relate to the field value that the control represents. As mentioned, each control in the Field Chooser list is bound to an Outlook field. When you modify the properties of a control, you can change the field to which that control is bound. To change the bound-field property, click Choose Field and select the field to which you want to bind the control from the drop-down list. Make sure that the field value is bound to the correct property of your control. Normally, the field value is tied to the control s Value prop erty; this is rarely changed. However, you can change this setting so that, for example, the value of a field is tied to your control s Enabled property. In this case, if the value of the field is True, the control is enabled; if the value is False, the control is not enabled. You can also set the initial value of your control to display a default value. Select the Initial Value check box, and then type an initial value in the text box. This value doesn t have to be a predetermined one you can have it correspond to a dynamic value, such as the current day or the concatenation of Subject field and the current date. To make the initial value more dynamic, click Edit to open the dialog box shown in Figure 24-9.

Validation
The Validation tab of the Properties dialog box allows you to set certain properties that relate to how (or whether) the value of the control is validated. For example, if you create a form for a purchase order, you might want to ensure that users indicate the quantity of parts they want to order. The order processing department will send you many thanks for requiring certain values before the purchase order gets to them, as it reduces the amount of information traffic and busy work needed to process an order. Suppose that you ve added a control to your form that requires a value for a text box, and that value is required to be less than or equal to 10 characters. If the user fails to enter a valid value, Outlook will display a message that prompts the user to enter a correct value. To set the properties on the Validation tab that will be necessary for this example, follow these steps:
