Does a 3rd party BOUND slider-control exist out there in the marketplace?

Microsofts UNbound slider control doesn't work on continuous forms, because it is not a bound control.  I saw one recommendation for a workaround, using text boxes, on this forum.  However, Google-ing hasn't turned up any 3rd party "for sale" add-ons or activeX controls that I could purchase.  Does anyone know of any Slider Controls (bound) that are available for sale -- or better yet -- free ?

bcreen,

I will presume that when you say "doesn't work", you mean that it cannot be set differently on different records?

This is the issue. This is not possible in a continuous form.
It has nothing to do with bound or unbound.

Basically Access takes 1 form and duplicates the "Design" for every record.
So if one control has an "etched" border, they all will.

So why can the "Data" be different for each record?
Because the data is what "shows through" the form. The data is not part of the form.

That's why Google came up with nothing.

Expert could have been a bit more gracious and  given more background -- novices may not benefit from the answer as given.

bcreen,
Thanks for the grade.
:)

There is really not that much more info that could have been given.
:(

This is a common "Novice" question about controls on continuous forms.
Basically the controls will be the same for all records.

Is there something more specific you needed?

Let me know
:)
