Open Main form - MAXIMIZED.

P: n/a
ssb
Hello,

One form in my application is the MAIN form. It is set up as "startup"
form. However, I need to do the following:

(1) When I double click MDE file to launch my project, the MAIN form
should open as maximized.

(2) When clicking a button on any FORM-A launches FORM-B, FORM-B
should also open as maximized. (i would like all forms to be always
opened as MAXIMIZED).

(3) When any form opens, it should completely "cover the screen". I
mean, I dont want any traditional menu bars to appear on the top of
form's screen.

(4) Certain "forms" in my application are purely informational in
nature. They are more of a help screen rather than a form. I dont want
record navigation buttons to appear on the bottom left corner of such
forms.

Thanks.

> (1) When I double click MDE file to launch my project, the MAIN form

Tools -> Startup
Under Display Form/Page enter the form name

should also open as maximized. (i would like all forms to be always
opened as MAXIMIZED).
For any form you wish to maximize on open, in the OnOpen event
property insert this code:
DoCmd.Maximize
(3) When any form opens, it should completely "cover the screen". I
mean, I dont want any traditional menu bars to appear on the top of
form's screen.
Research the menu options in the Tools -> Starup dialog. You will not
be able to get rid of Access entirely, though.

nature. They are more of a help screen rather than a form. I dont want
record navigation buttons to appear on the bottom left corner of such

In the Form Properties pages, look at the Navigation Button property.
Also research "Pop-Up" and "Modal" for more ideas.
