How can I put an "Allow Edit Toggle" in a form?

I'd like to know how to include an edit Toggle in a form, but it doesn't seem to work properly, the code I've written is:

Private Sub AllowEditionToggle_Click()
If AllowEdits = False Then
  AllowEdits = True
Else
  AllowEdits = False
End If
End Sub

Hi Josechu!

 The right code is:

Private Sub AllowEditionToggle_Click()
  If me.AllowEditionToggle  Then
    me.AllowEdits = True
  Else
    me.AllowEdits = False  
  End If
End Sub

But there's a big problem, once you has disable edits, the toggle button doesn't pick, So you don't change the value of allowEdits. So Try to disable all the controls in the form (ALERTA. Toggle button not) the code is:

sub disable()
  dim i as integer
  for i=0 to me.controls(0).count-1
    if (me.controls(0).name<>"TOGGLE BUTTON") then
      me.controls(0).enabled = False
      me.controls(0).locked = True
   end if
  next i
end sub

I hope this help you

I've tried it but me.controls(i).enabled doesn't work at all...

How could I make AllowEdits = False but keeping the AllowEditToggle ACTIVE?

Hola!

  El problema que pasa es que no se puede desabilitar el formulario, y tener un control (en este caso el boton de activar o desactivar) activado. Creo que es un poco incongruente.

  La idea que te propongo no es más que desabilitar todos aquellos controles excepto el botón de activar o desactivar.

  Si tienes algún problema dimelo

Hasta luego! Ah y gracias por los puntos
