A97... If I run Me.Visible = False in a form module, should Unhide be an option under "Window" menubar option?

MLH
Is there any case you can imagine that A97 would NOT display the
Unhide option under the Window menu after running this line...

Me.Visible = False

Yes, its happening to me. The Unhide choice is grayed out after
running this line on a form that was opened with the acDialog parm.
Guys, this wierd stuff I'm encountering, could some hardware issue
be responsible or would a viral element be more likely at fault?

Just a guess, but is your form a Popup?

Some of the other guys might now the why, but for popups, forms
opened with the acDialog option, it's quite common on my
setups.

Happens to me too in pop-ups. Won't show up on the unhide menu option.

For development purposes, just go to the forms tab and double click/open
the form. It will appear again.

No. My form's popup property is set to No.

Yeah, same here. I verified the hidden form was actually open by
trying to rename it (wouldn't let me rename open form) and by running

? SysCmd(SYSCMD_G ETOBJECTSTATE, acForm, "frmVehicleChoo serForm")

The value returned equaled acObjStateOpen. So, no question about
it being OPEN and HIDDEN. Nevertheless, you cannot unhide it from
the menubar, that much is for certain. As for why, unless it can be
fixed, WHY doesn't matter.

I'd think that wouldn't actually be a problem. Why would you want an
end user to unhide through the menus a dialog form that you've
hidden in code?

I'm really *glad* it works that way!

It's a dialog. It's not a user form, but a form that is used as part
of your controlled sequence of events (hence the acDialog argument).
You don't *want* the end user to be able to unhide it from the menu,
as this would mean they'd be getting to an object that's part of a
sequence of events and might do so outside the proper sequence.

This is a feature.

This is the right way for it to have been implemented.

Hello everyone, I've got two little apps which are able to create a window that displays something on the desktop, but are not clickable.

Hi, I've been having a problem with C++ Windows Forms apps not "ending" when you close the form window.

Hi, For some reason, the website I made does not open pages in a new page whenever I right-click "Open in New Tab" or "Open in New Window". But, as soon as I navigate to any other website, the open in new tab/window button works for them. Is there some setting I am missing that allows this to feature to work correctly? I don't have any code purposely preventing pages from being opened in the same window...don't know why that happens.

While reading c.l.j, I've noticed that some people prefer and indeed even recommend the use of "window.alert()" over "alert()". I can't find any technical reason to make this distinction, and seems to have a (tiny) amount overhead since window itself points to the global object, hence, a circular reference. (From everything I am reading, window is just a REFERENCE back to the global object, as opposed to a separate object.)
