My calendar control hides when I scroll

P: 28
Hi,

I have a form with calendar control 10 on it. As the form is quite large you have to scroll down to see all of it. When my scroll bar is level with the top of the calendar the calendar turns white and unusable. It reappears when the bottom of the scroll bar reaches the bottom of the calendar. It is like an actual window blind being pulled over it.

Is there anyway to stop this happening?

I haven't seen this problem before, It is most likely a video display problem. Did you try your database on another workstation?

I can't reproduce the problem either. If you try Don's suggestion of running the app on another machine with the same results I'd guess the control's become corrupted, and wouls simply delete the calendar and recreate it.

I've tried to delete it and start again. It does this on multiple machines also. I'm trying to redesign the form so they don't have to scroll. No major issues, just annoying. Thanks for looking at this.

In point of fact, making users scroll to use a form is considered by many, if not most, experienced developers to be one of the most non-user-friendly things you can do. If simply re-arranging the controls onto a single screen isn't possible, you should consider using a tabbed-page control. If you go this route, let us know if you need help with this.
