Create a Database navigation form

Hi,

I have designed a form to use as a navigation sidebar, but i'm having trouble ensuring that the form is always open and visable.

I want the form to open and be positioned down the left hand side of the scree.  it is only 3cm wide.  When items are click on the toolbar to open, they should open in the space next to the toolbar.

Can anyone advise me as to how i can achieve this?

Tom

Why not just create an mdi parent form and open your forms as child forms in the mdi form. Then you can put your bar in the mdi parent form. Or even create a custom menu bar

other wise you would have to create a form to use for this and add it as a subform to all your forms. Any code would be put on the buttons or labels in the subform as you have it now.

I would think a custom menu bar would be your best and neatest idea
