Navigation buttons off bottom of screen?

P: n/a
A single form (i.e. no subforms) opening full screen, how can I get the
navigation buttons (Access built in) to be higher than the bottom of the
screen. It annoys the users - they go for the nav buttons and end up raising
the taskbar, which is set to autohide.

TIA, Mike MacSween

You can't move the navigation buttons ... you can always "roll your own" and
place them anywhere on your form.

Yup, that's what I thought. Time to do my own anyway. Not that difficult and
the built in ones leave a lot to be desired. Thanks.

There's a pre built set here:

RecordNavigationButtons is an MDB containing code to replace the
standard Navigation Buttons. The custom buttons exactly emulate the
standard navigation bar including the autorepeat property

Thanks Stephen. You must have forgiven me for being so rude that time.

That was years ago Mike. Looking back at that thread I was as big an ass
as anybody else participating.
