toolbar on the fly

P: n/a
Thank you Hans for your detailed answer.I already tried it. Is there
any possiblity to build the custom toolbar and the buttons on the fly,
through a code? We have to send out the database to different cities
and we will have to go specially there to instal the toolbar.On the
other hand, if it is possible to do it by code, it might save us time

Why not just build a custom menu bar?

When you built these, they stay with the application. I see little, if any
need to write a whole bunch of code to create a new menu bar when you can
use the built in menu designer.

I mean, you can use code to create a form, but I have to think you mostly
use the forms it is much more easy to use.

You most certainly can, and should hide all of the ms-access interface. The
options to complete hide and keep people out of the ms-access interface can
easily be done using the tools->start-up options. Using those options allows
you to complete hide the ms-access interface (tool bars, database window
etc). Also, using these options means you
do not have to bother setting up security.

Try downloading and running the 3rd example at my following web site that
shows a hidden ms-access interface, and NO CODE is required to do
this....but just some settings in the start-up.

Check out:

After you try the application, you can exit, and then re-load the
application, but hold down the shift key to by-pass the start-up options. If
want, you can even disable the shift key by pass. I have a sample mdb file
that will let you "set" the shift key bypass on any application you want.
You can get this at:

As you can see, an application with custom menu bars, the menus *do* stay
with the application, and I did not write code to build those menu bars...

Give the above sample a try....
