Custom List Box

Dynamically Display Fields Based on User Selection


 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'm going to teach you how to select which fields are displayed in the columns of a list box based on the user selection.

Annie from Pembroke Pines, Florida (a Platinum Member) asks: is there any way for the user to change the columns that are displayed on a form? Sometimes we want to see the customer's phone number. Other times we want to see their address. I don't want to make a giant form with everything on it, and I don't want to have to make lots of different forms. Can this be done?

Members

Members will learn how to get rid of the check boxes. We will read the fields directly from the table properties, including which fields to display, the caption, field name, column width, and whether it should display on form load or not.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault. If you signed up on YouTube you have to register on my YouTube Find User page so I can set up your account here on my web site. If you're not a member, Join Today!

Update

  • Access Developer 37 covers lots more with this database, including changing the record source to any table or query, resizing the form (and having the fields resize too), dynamic labels over each column, and lots more. Check it out!
