Access 2010 Navigation Form - Allow for multiple sub forms.
Posted on 2011-05-11
The Navigation Form is a fresh change to the old switchboard, but it lacks the ability to keep more than one form open without opening another window or tabbed document.
Many of my clients like to have multiple forms open. The Navigation form displays only one form at a time. Every click of a menu loads a new form to the Navigation sub form control.
I am able to add multiple Navigation sub forms i.e NavigationSubForm (default), NavigationSubForm2, NavigationSubForm3, NavigationSubForm4, NavigationSubForm5, NavigationSubForm6. I am unable to find the events on the Navigation form that allows me to hide and unhide the sub forms using the visible property of the sub form. I have attempted to use the lost focus, on-click events of the Navigation control but I can't get the form to behave as I would expect.
Has anyone tackled this issue?
