Forms & Data
Posted on 2007-11-16
My second question as I said....
Right I have 2 databases (Locations & Tags), 3 Forms (Form1(Main Form), Form2(Locations Data Form), Form3(Tags Data Form)). On form 1 there are 35 buttons, the text from these buttons is read from the database Tags directly, if I update these tags on Form2 the information is inserted into the database as it should. When the form closes and returns to the main form, the buttons are not updated because the form is only hidden while data is updated then shown again. I cant use Me.Close because this makes the program close. Is there a code that I can put into the save button on the Tags form so that It updates Form1 before it is re-shown something like Form1.reload (A guess!).
The other this is that each button is assigned to a file name and when its pressed it plays music depending on which file name it is located to. At the moment this information is read from the text boxes on form2 which means that every time I load the program I have to load form2 from form1 then hide it. The string that windows media player uses is...
Dim item As WMPLib.IWMPMedia = AxWindowsMediaPlayer1.newMedia(Form2.TextBox1.Text)
As you can see all it is doing is getting the text from the text box on form2. Is there a way I can get the form to load this information from the database. Something like...
Dim item As WMPLib.IWMPMedia = AxWindowsMediaPlayer1.newMedia(LocationsDataSet.Locations.Cue1)
Then it would be accessing Locations table and Cue1 column?
Your help would be very much appreciated!
