Hi,

Is it possible to hide a tab on a user ribbon depending on the form that's used.  When I switch from one form to another I would like different options.

Thanks,

Bill

You can use Albert Kallal's ribbon class to hide/show objects of the ribbon:

Or you can set different ribbons for different forms.

Thanks gustav, I'm looking at that now.

Along those same lines is there a way to activate a tab on the ribbon when a form is activated?

You don't need the class of Kallal.
Here's an example for setting a tab in a simple setup:

Hi,

one possible method is of course the use of getVisible - but another more simple one is that you create a specialized ribbon and simply assign it directly to the form by using the property "RibbonName" of the form.
Whenever you open the form, Access automatically insert the tab as the last one (can also contain more than one tab, then all of them).
This method has the advantage that also the title bar of Access will be separated and the form title and a separator is inserted. You can see the effect if you open a form in design mode: Two further tabs will be added to the ribbon with the separator and title into the Access title bar. If you close the form, both will be removed.

I recommend this site to learn anything about ribbons, includes some tools:
