Form/subform can grow/shrink.
Posted on 2003-10-30
I'm trying to come up with a form that will display data from several tables. I'll just display one record from the main table, but there may be several records from supporting tables. I usually use sub-forms for this type of situation, but in this case, I want the support records to display fully, without scrolling.
So, this is easy to do in a report, but since can grow/shrink doesn't work with forms, I'm just wondering if there are alternatives to accomplish what I want.
I've played around with changing the subtforms .height and .top properties (based on # of records) and can probably make it work that way, it just seems like a very large amount of code to handle about 6 or 7 subforms and other contronls that come between and after the subforms.
