Form Auto Resize

How to Use the AutoSize Form Property

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this lesson I will show you how to make your Microsoft Access forms stay exactly the size you want when you save them. 

Javier from Campinas, Brazil (a Platinum Member) asks: I know you can position a form by moving it in form view and then saving it with CTRL-S. However, is there any way to get it to stay sized to the demensions I want as well? It seems every time I save, close, and reopen it, Access resizes it on me.


I'll show you how to add a little button to resize your forms larger and smaller. This will allow you to "slide" the forms open and closed to show more details.

I watched the "Auto Resize" video about adding a button to resize forms larger and smaller.

Worked fine, until I reopened the database the next day, then I'm getting a Return without GoSub error message, and it keeps complaining about the code. Read More...
