Control of horizontal scroll bar
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
Is there an event on the horizontal scroll bar I can use? What method is used to move a subform on a main form?
The scroll bar property of the two sub forms is identical, it is set to "both" but one sub form shows a vertical and horizontal scroll bar, and the other sub form shows only has a horizontal scroll bar?
There is enough vertical/horizontal data so each form should be showing both scroll bars
From the reading I have done, it appears that if the sum of the widths of all the columns exceed that of the listbox, a scroll bar will automatically appear. This has, however, not happened.
Could anyone suggest any reasons for this, or how I can resolve this?
I've Main Form (frmMain) which is just showing two combo boxes to filter results of the sub form. In the main form (frmMain), I've continuous sub form (fsubSchool).
In sub form (fsubSchool), records are showing as Tabular form.
Scroll bars are active on both forms (frmMain & fsubSchool)
Ok the issue is that, When I'm on the main form, and I move through records of the sub form, the horizontal and vertical scroll bar of the main for does not move accordingly. Due to this when I move through records of the sub form using Tab key on keyboard, I've to manually scroll through horizontal bar to see on which record I'm currently on.
2nd issue is that, the scroll bars movement (scrolling) is not so accurate, how to make it real that it should only appear when it's needed & should scroll smoothly.
I hope you got my point.
please guide me how to fix both issues.
waiting anxiously for kind
When a subform field has a focus, the (vertical) scroll of mainform is disabled (I.e. I can't scroll down the page with mouse wheel)I have to click on scroll bar and move down.
How can I enable mousewheel for that purpose?
I am not seeing a property setting to enable a horizontal scroll bar for a text field.
And also I need to disable the control from doing line wrap.
Basically I want Access to display the text as-is and do no reformatting.
I have set my font to a mono-space font, so that point is successfully covered
I tried binding the scroll bar to a Control Source, but Access would allow a bound ActiveX control on a continuous form.
Does anyone have a suggestion? I'm willing to consider anything from a fix to starting from scratch, whichever is the simplest and the quickest.
However when this happens, sometimes the reports open and fill the screen which is what I want. However the windows taskbar at the bottom hides the horizontal scroll bar. Also it only shows the windows task bar sometimes depending on what other programmes are open and sometimes the pop up report will cover the windows task bar.
