Hi,

I want to resize the Microsoft web browser activex control I have in an access form, so that it will be the same size as the form.

I put in the following code in vba
    Me.WebBrowser.height = Me.WindowHeight
    Me.WebBrowser.width = Me.WindowWidth

But the control does not take on height and width values of the form. Is this a problem with the activex control? How do I fix it?


Thanks

Hi

Get that problem all the time in vba, the only fix I have found for it is to delete the the control and create it again, ensuring to draw it the size you want when first creating it.

This is not an issue in VB, only in VBA.

private sub form_load()
Me.WebBrowser.top = 0
 Me.WebBrowser.left = 0
Me.WebBrowser.height = Me.WindowHeight
 Me.WebBrowser.width = Me.WindowWidth

end sub

flavo,

Then how do you open a web page to www.google.com using the adobe control?
I'm assuming you're refering to Adobe Acrobat Control for ActiveX.

I agree with allanwarren.  Every time I need to resize the webcontrol, I delete the old one and draw a new one.  Doesn't seem to be a way around this - without using a different type of control (?)
