Commandbars - 1. organizing, 2. resizing

P: n/a
Does anyone know of any code to organize or condense the access
commandbars? Access doesn't really intuitively place them, and I find
myself having to move them around once they've been enabled; I don't
want my users to have to do this. For example, Access may place a
newly enabled commandbar on a new row when it would easily fit into a
previous one; my app uses as much of the 1024x768 space as it can
(small monitors), and a new commandbar row just messes everything up.

Also, is there any way to resize the default menu bar (File, Edit
etc..), specifically the width? There is a lot of unused space on
this commandbar (which I could really use) but it will not allow me to
modify it's width. I suppose a custom commandbar replicating the
functions of the menu bar would do, but that's just a whole lot of
work.

Thank you very much,
Robert Waters

Hi Robert,

I think it's a whole lot less work than what you've described! 8)

Create your own menu bar(s) and, if necessary, tool bar(s). Make sure
they are jiggled around and placed where you want them relative to each
other than in customize, turn off the ability to move the menus.
