How to put a menu bar DIRECTLY on a form.

P: n/a
Hello,

I know how to create a menu bar and have it displayed on the Access
Window but cannot manage to get it directly on my form's window.

My application runs MS ACCESS minimized and I have all my form as
popup so it almost looks like a stand alone application.

Is there a way to show my menu bar directly on my form without using
an ActiveX control ?

Thank you.

I don't think so. I beleive your only two options are to create your own
"toolbar" looking area on the form, or to use the Toolbar control from VB.

No, the MIDI interface has been with us for about 10 years now.

Word, Excel, PowerPoint all have child windows without a menu bar.

Gee, come to think of it..so does ms-access. This should not be
a surprise...since all of office works this way!

Since the most popular programs in the world (by A HUGE MARGIN) use
the midi interface,then you should not be scared to also have the
menu bar at the top of the application. Note that also the Apple
mac works this way.

So, given that the most popular software in the world works this
way...it is not such a bad thing that the menu bar is at the top.

I also would not mind the ability to have a menu bar docked with
the form..but it not that bad since all of the rest of office
does use MIDI.
