VBA Code needed: Is Form Open?

In Form1 I am opening Form2.

After Form2 is open, in Form1 I want to click a button that will tell me if Form2 is open.

I need a function that will return a boolean, true (open) or false (form is not open).

Function IsFormOpen(FormName As String) As Boolean

  'Is the form open???

End Function

Function IsLoaded(ByVal strFormName As String) As Integer
 ' Returns True if the specified form is open in Form view or Datasheet view.
   
    Const conObjStateClosed = 0
    Const conDesignView = 0
   
    If SysCmd(acSysCmdGetObjectState, acForm, strFormName) <> conObjStateClosed Then
        If Forms(strFormName).CurrentView <> conDesignView Then
            IsLoaded = True
        End If
    End If
   
End Function

Function fIsLoaded(ByVal strFormName As String) As Integer
'Returns a 0 if form is not open or a -1 if Open
    If SysCmd(acSysCmdGetObjectState, acForm, strFormName) <> 0 Then
        If Forms(strFormName).CurrentView <> 0 Then
            fIsLoaded = True

My solution was:

Function IsFormOpen(FormName as String) as Boolean

  Dim temp_form as Form
  Dim is_open

  is_open = false  'init to FALSE
  For Each temp_form in Forms
    if temp_form.Name = FormName then
      is_open = true
    End If
  Next

  IsFormOpen = is_open
End Function

Perhaps not the best?

Interesting... I use such code in VB, but for some reason I though it wouldn't work in VBA (Access). I can't remember... perhaps Access 97 didn't supported that.

If you'r not aware of all uses of Forms collection:
MsgBox Forms("frmProducts").Caption
You just need to take care if form is open before such sentences (or use "On Error Resume Next").

Btw... code I pasted as a solution was autogenerated/supplied by Access (can't recall in what situation).

If you ever find that autogenerated code (what situation) I would be interested!

Thanks!
