Automatically changing subforms
Posted on 2004-04-27
Hi. I've overloaded a tab page with way too many pages, each of which contains a few calculated subforms which, overall, is overwhelming my application.
As opposed to cutting up the tabs into several, smaller tab pages, I wanted to see if I could just automatically change subforms via a script -- that is, simulate how a web page works with frames (i.e., you have a master "form", and depending on what buttons you press, it will open deferent "subforms" in a designated subform area).
Was wondering if I could click on a button, and have it change the data source of the subform (e.g., subforma, subformb, subformc)? This would save me a lot of recoding time, and presumably reduce the burden on the application by keeping closed subforms that I'm not using anyway.
