Form Design Aesthetics

Form Design Aesthetics - Professional Looking Controls, Buttons

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this video I will show you how to make your forms look more professional with the look and feel of custom designed controls, backgrounds, and images.

Jannette from California (a Developer Student since 2018) asks, "My boss says my forms look too blocky. Is there a course that goes over form design for advanced developers?"


I'll show you how to create buttons using custom images. You'll learn how to use VBA to control the mouse hover and click appearances too.

PNG Image for Form Background Upload Images   Link

My name and other fields display correctly in Design View but as soon as I switch to Form or Layout the fields are relocated. They even scroll up and around when I move a mouse over them. Is there a fix for this? I'm trying for a PNG image because it looks sharper than the jpeg version.

Not sure I understand completely what's happening, could you use the upload images button on the top right and send a picture of what it does? Can you also send a picture of your settings for the picture (Form->Properties->Format)?

Yeah, I've never seen that happen myself.
