Subformss, Tab Controls, and Forms

Subformss, Tab Controls, and Forms
Views: 17
I am creating a case management database. I have created a Main form called Participants.

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?

At what point in time is MS going to alter Forms so that controls only tab between controls on the same page? Building a wizard where you want the user to be able to TAB, just like the rest of every application out there, would be so much easier.
 

Set the tab order for controls

Set the tab order for controls Icon
When you use a form, you can switch between controls by pressing the TAB key. You can specify the order in which the controls on a form respond to the TAB key. The controls should respond to the TAB key in a logical order - for example, from top to bottom and from left to right - so that the form is easier to use.
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.
 

Controls in Tab Control disappear when form is opened in design mode

Controls in Tab Control disappear when form is opened in design mode Icon
Every once in awhile when I double click on a form in design mode (Windows Forms Application) that contains a tab control, all of the controls on the tab control disappear. I have to reopen the form to get them all back.

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?

Access 2010 Web Form with regular Tab control ? Icon
Are Tab controls of any use in Access 2010 Web Forms? In web forms the tab change doesn't appear to expose any properties to know what tab was selected. I tried using the navigation control first but didn't want to always requery my main page automatically as the navigation control does.
 

Issues with Tab Order

Issues with Tab Order Icon
I am trying to set my form up so that the user can move between controls with the tab button. I thought this would be very simple but I have an issue.

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

The Windows Controls of a Form

The Windows Controls of a Form Icon
A typical database is made of forms (and reports) and these objects are equipped with Windows controls that allow a user to interact with the computer. To create such a database, you add forms and reports to it. Then you populate them with the necessary objects. This is the essence of application design and you should know how to design the controls.
Form and report design consists of populating them with the necessary controls that would allow a person to use your database. To perform this design, you first open the form or report in Design View.
