I guess we're all pretty familiar with stacking controls on forms to acheive certain effects by hiding certain controls etc.
My boss wants me to overlay a textbox or lable over a (continuous forms) subform so that under certain conditions the control overlays the subform indicating that the form is locked. (although I want to keep the subform visible so the data can still be seen)
Imagine my surprise when after placing a text box 'over' a subform, it stubbornly refuses to 'bring to front' and the subform won't go to back either
I guess subforms are a special case, but i would be interested if anyone has got any ideas or workarounds ...
I can implement an alternative solution, but it would be neat if something approaching the ideal could be done
