Hi,

Use the properties of the form. There are three or four options that you can set to yes or no to display the navigation keys. Just set them to no and they shouldn't be displayed any more.

Set the following
Record Selectors = No (Bar on the left hand side of the form)
Navigation Buttons = No (The ones on the bottom of your form)
Control Box = No (Max, Min, Close ect all in one go, or do them individually)

Hi,

Yeah you could do that to but then you have to code it. If you just have a query (or table) with the input for the form, you don't need to use code. This keeps it more simple to maintain because you know your forms have those options turned of. No need to search your code for some line you might have set to true (or false) when it wasn't needed.

Or you could write a function so that every form that needs this, calls the function to turn of the navigation keys.

I just tend to set that as my default value for all new forms as I make all controls as I want them in place of default values on the forms. Same applies for backrounds and borders. You can set defaults for new databases and new forms.
