CheckBox

P: 64
Quick question (hopefully)

Using Access 2007.

I am using a checkbox to trigger an event.

My question is, I would like the check box to be larger....I can't seem to find any attribute or property that will effectively change the size of the check box.

I can change the border size....but not the box itself.

Thanks

If 2007 is the same as earlier versions then there is no option to change the size of the checkbox control.

Checkbox size not a property, therefore you can't. Some things I do here is:
To see it better, you can 1) use an Image control, and use your own images of checked & unchecked checkboxes. Now you can have X-Boxes instead of checks, or use "X" and "O" within the box. 2) Use a ToggleButton, which can be any size.
To make it easier for mouse to be over it when clicked (click on near-miss), you can expand the label to include the checkbox as clicking the label is the same as clicking the checkbox.
Using a boolean control to trigger an event makes sense if there are 2 states, and you are switching between them. If not, a command button would be appropriate.
