ZOrder or SetChildIndex in Access

P: n/a
Hello all,

I am curious as to whether there is a way to use ZOrder or SetChildIndex
in MS Access (VBA) to place one control at the top of the Z order for
the form (or its layer within the form) at runtime. I've been scanning
online documentation for an API to add to my code to access either of
these functions, but the search has been fruitless thus far.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I doubt it. Access controls are effectively nothing but bitmaps most of the
time, and only behave as Windows controls when they have focus.

You can fake placing a control at the top of the Z-order by simply using
its SetFocus method, although this is probably not what you are after.
