i've got a frmSynchronise that i open as a hidden form when the DB opens. when i close the DB, i want to display the form and then synchronise the replicas. what this does is that when the user sees the open form, he / she knows that the DB is syncing and thus taking awhile to quit instead of thinking that the programme is lousy.
however, i can't get the form to become visible regardless what i try
Private Sub Form_Close()
Me.Visible = True
DoEvents 'in an attempt to make the form visible
Me.Repaint 'in an attempt to make the form visible
is it because i'm putting it in the form close event and thus it cannot display? but when i debug and step through, i indeed CAN make the form visible. could yall help me out please? thanks!!
