Lock all the controls in a userform


Board Regular

I have a userform with many Textboxes, Labels, CommandButtons....

I need to lock all the controls when the userform Initializes

Instead of locking each control separate, I found this code on google that works well if the userform doesn't contain any label, else if there is any label, there will be an error

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Dim ctrl As Control
For Each ctrl In Box.Frame1.Controls
ctrl.Locked = True
Set ctrl = Nothing

Me.cmd_New.Locked = False

End Sub
Can someone please tell me how to fix this code to lock all the controls in the userform even if it contains labels?

If you look at the Label control Properties you will see there is no Locked.
You can Enable a label or Inable a label but you cannot lock a label.
