Making Subforms appear with the click of an option button

P: 6
Hi,

As the title says im trying to make a subform appear depending on which option button is selected, is this possible and if so would it mostly involve coding? Im guessing i would have to do an OnClick Event or would it be After Update?

Cheers,

Bobby Banks!

I guess you have a problem with the space on your form.
Personally when I need multiple subforms I just add a Tab control and place on each tab a subform.
For a user this is a known way to navigate to related data and it would even allow you to show only tabs that are relevant to the type of data displayed on the mainform.
The tabs act then as your subform selectionbutton and no code is needed when you don't have to suppress tab's.

Idea ?

Nicos idea is the way I would do it as well.

However, if you really want to follow your original idea all you have to do is make the subforms invisible one on top of the other and then toggle them visible/invisible using command buttons.
