Menu Bar - Removal without momentary glimpse

P: n/a
I'm able to load a tiny BitMap and therefore eliminate to MS ACCESS
banner during the load. I no longer see the Access banner - Not even

I'm also able to eliminate the MenuBar with the following command:
Application.CommandBars("Menu Bar").Enabled = Boolean

The problem is the MenuBar does display shortly and then becomes
eliminated. Is there a way to eliminate this short glimpse of the
MenuBar so the visual load is clean ???

Thanks Greg

Why not just make your own custom menu bar..and have that display?

I mean, I think for the last 15 years, virtually 99.9% of the applications I
run and loaded had a menu bar. It is not exactly like the menu bar is going
to cause some type of reaction that "scares" your users ;-)
Note that if you use the /runtime switch for your shortcut, you actually
don't even see the ms-access icon appear until your specified one does.

I don't really have a solution for you, but I a workaround is to simply
build your own custom menu bar, and specify that for the application.

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.

Thanks Albert

I created a custom Menu (Blank) and called it from the Open event of
the form.
I removed the FileMenu in the line of code that followed that.
My Startup ticks are all off. This gave me the affect I wanted.
