hide/show a combobox

P: 1
hi guyz
I've a list for combobox1:"Kine","Aquaquam","Mahlet" and "Testament" as well for that of combobox2: "Old Testament" and "New Testament".
So Combobox2 should be displayed in the form-view if value of Combobox1 is "Testament".
I've attempt the following code:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. private sub bombobox1_BeforUpdate()
  2. if combobox1 = "Testament" then
  3.   combobox2.visible = false
  4. else
  5.   combobox2.visible = true
  6. endif
  7. me.requery
  8. me.refresh
  9. me.repaint
  10. end sub
Thank you in advance

What happens? Do you get an error message, or does combobox2 just remain visible?

It would probably work better to put your code in the combobox1 After_Update event instead of the before_update event. You also shouldn't need the Me.requery, me.refresh, and me.repaint commands.

(don't forget to use the code tags when posting code. Use the button that says <code/> to enter your code so that viewing is easier.)

Your logic do not fit your implementation.
You say:
So Combobox2 should be displayed in the form-view if value of Combobox1 is "Testament".
But the implementation is:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. if combobox1 = "Testament" then
  2.   combobox2.visible = false
  3. else
  4.   combobox2.visible = true
  5. endif
So, if combobox1 = "Testament" then combobox2 will not be visible. Isn't it ?

Replace your lines 3 to 6 with this one:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. combobox2.visible = (combobox1 = "Testament")
