     I had several forms with several controls on each. I wanted to clear each control, but I wanted to make it as painless as possible. This code takes a form and iterates through each control clearing the values. Currently, it works with text boxes, combo boxes, data pickers, and masked edit controls. all you have to do is pass a form name to the procedure. It uses the for each...next loop, along with the typeof method. I hope this helps.
