Access form displays slowly
Posted on 2011-02-16
I have an Access 2007 form which, when it opens, the controls display one by one rather than showing all at once. It is a bit of a distraction and I was hoping to come up with a method of getting the form to appear without the popping in of the various controls on the form.
What I tried to do was set the form's visible property to False at the beginning of the LOAD event and then set it back to True when the form was ready. The problem is that no matter which event (Current, Activate, Got Focus for the 1st control) I put the me.visible = true statement in the form still displays with a noticable lag in the displaying of controls on the screen.
The lag in time of when the form first appears to when the last control displays is about 1+ second in length. I know that this doesn't seem long but I would rather have the form display with all controls already displayed on it.
Does anyone have any other ideas or do I have the right idea but am putting the me.visible = true statement in the wrong spot?
