Wait until a recordset is done loading

Hi !

I have this header form that has a recordsource set on its onload event (a query that may be long to run). I also have a subform that is based on a table and therefore is way faster to run. So the details appears like 3 seconds before the header. I'd like to avoid this this ? Maybe wait until the query of the header is finished ?
How could I proceed ? (code needed as usual...)

Thanks

Try putting your code in the Form_open and then add subform.visible= true in the Form_load, since open occurs before load.

Subforms do in fact load before their parent forms so to follow along with David251 ... this code goes in events for the parent form.

Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)
   Me.childInvDetail.Visible = False
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Me.childInvDetail.Visible = True
End Sub

childInvDetail is the name of the subform control and not the name of the form that is embedded.

So subform would be invisible until header query is done. What I want is all the layout to be displayed on form load and all the data to be filled in at once !!

then you will need to bind the controls on the subform in the main form's load event

Private SUb Form_Load()

With Me.childDetail.Form.Controls
    .txtID.ControlSource = "ID"
    .txtFirstName.ControlSource = "FirstName"
... etc.
End With

stevbe: i'm already doing this for both the form & subform...but still, the subform is loaded first because, I think, it is based on a small table rather than a large query for the header....

are you doing it in the parent form's load event? Using the load event *should* make sure that the recordset is loaded before you start assigning Control Sources

stevbe: well, i'm doing it in the form load event for the texboxes in the form, and in the subform load event for the textboxes in the subform. Is that the cause, what should I do ?

do them all from the Load event of the main form, Access loads subforms before main forms.

Hum I tried like this :
Me.SubQuoteDetails.Form.Controls.Base_Price
and like this :
Me.SubQuoteDetails.Base_Price
Doesn't find the texboxes (of course I added the controlsource after...) !!!!
SubQuoteDetails is the name of the subform component and Base_Price is the name of the texbox

use this code on the main form to make sure you have the correct subform control name ...

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim ctl As Control
    For Each ctl In Me.Controls
        If ctl.ControlType = acSubform Then
            MsgBox "this is the name to use: " & ctl.Name
        End If
    Next
End Sub

Do you mean that Intellisense did not display the controls or do you mean the code does not work?

ctl.Name = SubQuoteDetails, this is what the msgbox displayed.
And this is what I used in those tries :
Me.SubQuoteDetails.Form.Controls.Base_Price.ControlSource
or
Me.SubQuoteDetails.Base_Price.ControlSource
Any idea ?

Damn I can't use a with statement like this ? :
===========================
With Me.SubQuoteDetails.Form.Controls
    ("Qty").Locked = True
    ("Qty").ControlSource = "Qty"
End With
===========================
Is there a way to accomplish this ?

===========================
With Me.SubQuoteDetails.Form.Controls
    !Qty.Locked = True
    !Qty.ControlSource = "Qty"
End With
===========================
