On Activate Event to Highlight Active Form in Access
In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'm going to teach you how to use the On Activate event to highlight the active form and turn it yellow when you click on it, to make it more easily visible to the user.
Harper from Seattle, Washington (a Platinum Member) asks: Is there any way to highlight the current form that has focus? Our database uses a bunch of different forms, and sometimes it's hard to keep track of which one you're on. I know how to use conditional formatting to highlight the field you're on, but it would be nice if the whole form turned yellow too. I tried using the On Got Focus event for the form, but that doesn't seem to do anything.
There is no Extended Cut, but here's the database for the Gold members.
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.
