Access 2010  continuous form

I have added an option button to my access form.   See code below.   It works only once :)

What options do I have here.?

Private Sub OptAllowEdits_AfterUpdate()
       Me.Form.AllowEdits = OptAllowEdits
End Sub

Hi,

Once you set a form property it stays that way until you set it differently or close and repoen the form to get the default property setting.

What do you want to happen?

Regards,

Are you trying to toggle it?

The click event of a label works well for this sort of thing:

Private Sub lblMyLabel_Click()

Me.AllowEdits = Not (Me.AllowEdits )
Me.lblMyLabel.Caption = iif(Me.AllowEdits = true, "Disable Edits", "Enable Edits")

End Sub

Open in new window
