Set Colour for Current Record

759 Contributor
Hi again !

I have a form bound to a table.
When a control has focus the Conditional Formatting allow me to set a color for text or paper. I use that.

The question is: Is here something like that but for entire Detail section ? I use lines to separate Detail area for records. But is hard to user to locate the record. Can I set a color for the entire record (Detail section) which has the focus ?

Thank you !

The Paint event happens quite often, and one should be careful in its use, as it can cause a bit of screen flicker. But its also very nice to play with in terms of user interface.

In the example below, you can see how I use it to colour the current record, as well as give the currently selected "cell" a border color.

I know I've asked this question in the last week, but no matter how hard I look, I can't find it. So I'll type it again. Is it possible to set the height of the detail section of a report using vba? I want to be able to set the height in a table and have the detail section adjust to that height, no matter what it is really set to. Is that feasible, or is it no. If so, what is the syntax for setting the height of the detail section of...

In the Developers Handbook, Getz provides a way to create a survey report that displays either a line, Yes/No or multiple choice for each question. It's done by placing three controls (one for each type of answer) in the report's detail section and then making the control appropriate for each question visible in the Format event of the detail section. Can this be simulated in a form? There's no Detail Format event for a form but can it be...

I had a Sproc which returned a field called Details. I had the Form Wizard create a continuous form with the Sproc as the RecordSource (as a shell for me to modify). I renamed the Details textbox to txtDetails. Except I didn't. I grabbed DETAIL from the pulldown and renamed it to TxtDetail.

In Access2003 and XP. My forms detail section hides behind the header when I scroll down to see controls off screen. This is similar to freezing a pane in Excel. I'd rather this did not happen but can't find the property that controls this. When the form first opens some of the controls are behind the header and scrolling is required to see them. Help, thanks, RICK

Hello, I have a report that has only 2 levels of grouping. The detail section is simply 1 large block for a memo field. I am finding that on some occasions the report errors and generates hundreds (perhaps even an infinite loop...I have to break the system to stop the report generating) of pages. While I'm not 100% I think this may have something to do with the detail

Hi I open a report with the possibility to show the details or not. Everything works well as long as the detail section is shown. If I make the detail section invisible I have no longer any running sums. All (sub)totals show zero as sum. Is there any possibilitiy to calculate these running sums even with the detail section invisible ? Thanks in advance...

hi, I have a few records displayed in the Detail section of the continuous form, and a line of comment at the bottom of the screen in the Form Footer section. However there is a wide gap between the last record in the Detail section and the comment textbox in the Form Footer. How can I make the Form Footer section displaying just after the last record in the Detail section? Thanks in advance!

Hi - Is it possible to hide the detail section of a report at run time? I have a report that prints all details, with summary lines. The user would like the report ALSO with just summary lines. It seems the simplest thing is to run the code (see below) once with the detail section showing, and a second time hiding the detail section. I can't figure out the code to do that and don't see it posted.

Hello, I need to create conditional formatting of a text box in the detail section of a report. The formatting is based on multiple parameters that are stored in a query. For example, pretend that = 50%, = 80%, and = 90%. I will check in the report against (from the query, but currently stored in a text box on the report via a Dlookup - textbox name is still ). If is less than then I want to compare the value of (another report...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
