I'm wondering how others have addressed UI requirements for Access-style
continuous forms and sub-forms in a windows forms application (besides
third-party products).

I am very new to VB.Net. My experience is with MS ACCESS. I would consider myself an expert at MS ACCESS. This is my first VB project How is the Form/subform done in VB. net? For example I have a form for the user to fill out and I would like the user to be able to select Multiple categories. The user information will be stored in one table and the selected categories will be stored in a different table (on to many relationship).

Hi, I have two very similar forms each with a subform. The main form gets a few fields from the user and passes this back to a query that the subform is bound to. The requery is done when the user enters the last qualifying field on the main form. In one case this works fine, the subform shows the data the user wants to update -- which means showing all the data put in previously (ie showing this via the requery and the continuous...

I've noticed that controls that are contained in MDI child forms fail to raise MouseLeave events if the MDI child form's MdiParent property is set to Nothing (after it was set to an existing MDI container form) or if the MDI child form's Visible property is set to False (after the MDI child form was shown). This is an enormous problem for my app because I must show different MDI child forms based on the state of my application and many of the...

I have a form with two subforms on it which are both continous forms. The subform on the left shows the tasks that the employee was assigned to accomplish (each as a seperate record) while the one on the right is where they put what tasks they actually did. It is important that I keep the assigned tasks unmodified because we eventually will be looking at the difference between assigned and accomplished tasks. I have a button on each task...

Hello all, I've seen many discussions regarding continuous forms in Access and how to highlight individual rows and they all seem to suggest conditional formatting as the only way. This is fine, but I am struggling to understand if it will solve my problem. I have two subforms on a main form that contain many rows of data. What I want to do is highlight in subform 2 those rows that are not present in subform 1. I am using a query...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
