Re: [MS_AccessPros] Decreasing row height

 

That did it John. Thank you. Forgive me for blindsiding you and Bill about the layout control. I don't know enough yet to know what's important and what's not.

Please allow me to ask one more question: Removing the layout control also removed the horizontal line that was between records. I put a line across the bottom of the detail section. The line looks OK when the form opens. But its height changes with the increase/decrease height commands by moving its right side up or down. The line's left side does not move. How do I get a horizontal line to follow the records as they increase and decrease in height?

Thank you. Steve

Uh, probably!  The default is to put the controls in a Layout.  You need to get rid of that!


Open the form in Design view.  Select any control in the detail section.  Click on the Arrange tab, and then click Remove in the Control Layout section.

I should be able to develop a sample database with a few records.

Here is something else which may have a bearing on my problem: I created a query with four fields to be the data source for the form. Then I highlighted the query in the navigation pane. Then went to the ribbon's Create tab and in the Forms section clicked on Multiple Items. Access created the form under discussion. Does this method of creating the form cause any problems with Bill's button event code?

You said you can't upload the database.  Is it possible to create a "sample" database with dummy info and the forms that demonstrate the problem?  If so, you could upload that.  If not, then perhaps a screen shot of the form with the white space and another with the form in Design view might help.

Duane, thanks for that idea. But same results . . . blank white space between the rows with the decrease button.

This code in a form worked as expected for me:

Option Compare Database
Option Explicit
Const intIncrement As Integer = 250

Private Sub cmdDecreaseDetailHeight_Click()
    Dim ctl As Control
    For Each ctl In Me.Section(0).Controls
        ctl.Height = ctl.Height - intIncrement
    Next
    Me.Section(0).Height = Me.Section(0).Height - intIncrement
   
End Sub

Private Sub cmdIncreaseDetailHeight_Click()
    Dim ctl As Control
    
    Me.Section(0).Height = Me.Section(0).Height + intIncrement
    For Each ctl In Me.Section(0).Controls
        ctl.Height = ctl.Height + intIncrement
    Next
End Sub

Steve-

Can't see why that isn't working.  What happens if you do a Requery?

Thanks Glenn and John for the advice. I am able to increase detail section height, but the height of the rows remains constant and space is inserted between rows. Decreasing detail section height decreases the space between rows. Seems to me that changing detail section height alone is not enough. Thoughts?

Thanks, Steve

You need to be changing the Height of the Detail section of the subform, not the Row Height.

I'm using a continuous form to display rows of data. A command button 
programmatically increases row height by 500 twips for each click. 
Another button decreases row height by the same amount.

When the form opens, the rows are butted up against each other. When I 
click the button to increase row height, the height increases and the 
rows are butted up against each other. Here's the problem: when I click 
to button to decrease row height, the height decreases but the rows no 
longer abut each other. There is a blank white space between each row. 
How do I decrease row height and get the rows to abut each other, i.e., 
no space between the rows?

Thanks.

Steve
