Subformss, Tab Controls, and Forms
There are several themes which must be completed for each participant: Personal Information, Personal Assessment, Personal Plans, Notes, and Other.
I thought of using a tab control for each theme.
I want to create subforms for each theme. That is, I want to create subforms for each subject area, etc.
I read on this board that you can't but a tab control within a tab control, but you can create subforms that would individually contain a tab control.
The issue is not creating the subform but I get the message "Can't build a link between unbound forms".
The SourceObject is set to the name of my subform. On this form, I have a form control with 2 tabs for each of my forms.
How do I get this to link to the master (I.e. main) form?
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
This article describes how to change the tab order, how to remove a control from the tab order, and how to change the tab behavior for the last field in a form.
In addition to this, the column order of my columns on any datagrid inside a tab control get rearranged when this happens. Is this a known bug and if so isthere a hot fix or patch?
But I want it so that at the top of the page you enter the customers name and date, and then work your way through the forms on the tab control to fill in the data.
But I am wondering how do I go about entering new customers. Should my customers form be within the Tab control or should it be seperate and put all my tab controls into that form. If that makes sense to you
I have tried [Forms]![mainformname]![tabName].[pageName]![fieldName] and variations but no joy.
I have an Access 2003 db with a form that has a Tab control and some unbound textboxes on each tab.
When the user presses the Tab or Arrow keys I want to set the tab order of all the unbound textboxes on a tab so that the user can navigate the form horizontally or vertically like a spreadsheet.
I inititally thought to capture the key pressed and simply set focus to the appropriate textbox but that caused the controls on the tab to flicker. I posted a thread on this but got no response.
The problem with resetting the tab order via VBA is that once four or five textboxes are set, they then start to renumber randomly and do not keep the tab order I set.
I tried ordering the tab index of each textbox from zero upwards and also from the max index downwards but I end up with the same problem
1.cboCode - Tab index 0
2.txtProd - Tab index 1
3.txtQty - Tab index 2
When the form opens a new record controls 1 & 3 are enabled and tab stop is set to yes, control 2 is locked and tabstop is set to No.
If the users enters a cboCode then when they tab across the focus goes to the txtqty control.
However if they do not enter a code and hit tab I want the focus to go to txtProd to be the next control
Is this possible? and I am assuming that as the tab indexes are there enabling this one won't bugger up the order
I have 4 labels one below another, and 3 buttons to the right of them, one below another. I want to tab down the labels and then across and down the buttons.
In the Tab Order Dialogue box in the Detail section, only 4 of the controls are visible. They are not in Form header or Form Footer neither
