Isshipped form bkground color Upload Images   Link   Email

I have found the extended cut very useful, but would like to add some VBA to the AfterUpdate IsShipped Private sub. I would like to change the background color of the form if IsShipped is checked. Is this possible? Phil
Kevin Robertson
Yes. Forms don't have a Backcolor property though. Sections do.

You can either use the name of the Section.
Me.Section("Detail").BackColor = RGB(255, 0, 0)

Or use the index number of the Section.
Me.Section(0).BackColor = RGB(255, 0, 0)

0 - Detail
1 - Form Header
2 - Form Footer


To change the Backcolor of the 3 sections together (I intentionally left out Page Header and Page Footer for forms) you can loop through them with a For Next Loop.

Dim X As Integer
    
For X = 0 To 2
    Me.Section(X).BackColor = RGB(255, 0, 0)
Next


Change the RGB value to the color you want.

Excellent, I will experiment with these suggestions. Thanks for the quick response! Phil

Me.Section(1) or (2) will cause a run-time error if the form doesn't have a header or footer section.  So you need to watch for that.
