Is there a way to programatically fix where on a page a MS Access opens?
Posted on 2011-03-02
I have a MS Access application that opens a number of forms that the user will want to view all at the same time.
The application is designed to run on a computer with a 1280 x 1024 monitor.
The forms have been designed to fit on the page in a maner that does not cause overlap. For example, the main screen displays two forms, each approximately 640 x 1024, and these forms display side by side.
Currently, in order to make things fit I must display the form in design view to propertly size and position it. This is problematic because if its off just a bit, it causes the slider bars to appear which cover up parts of the form, or for the form to go off screen.
The other problem caused by manually sizing and positioning is that every time I edit the form I wind up moving it and then need to do so again.
What I would like is to programatically set the size in some way, to 640 x1024 and have the first form open with its left top corner at pixel 1,1 and the second form open at pixel 641,1.
Can you help?
