Difference Between A Command Button And A 'label' Button

Aug 12, 2005

Hi, I have got a small problem and maybe someone could advise me.
I am creating a customised command button from a label button. The new button works fine but I can't apply the 'requery' function to it, if i do an error occures and i am being prompt to save the data first???? :confused: :

Private Sub Labelsearch_Click()
End Sub

Private Sub Labelsearch_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
Me.Labelsearch.SpecialEffect = 2
Me.Labelsearch.BackColor = 255
Me.Labelsearch.ForeColor = 10092543
Me.Labelsearch.FontItalic = True
Me.Labelsearch.FontBold = True
End Sub

Private Sub Labelsearch_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
Me.Labelsearch.ForeColor = 255
Me.Labelsearch.FontItalic = False
Me.Labelsearch.FontBold = True
End Sub

Private Sub Labelsearch_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
'Come back to initial state when button release'
Me.Labelsearch.SpecialEffect = 1
Me.Labelsearch.BackColor = 16373685
Me.Labelsearch.ForeColor = 8388608
Me.Labelsearch.FontItalic = False
Me.Labelsearch.FontBold = True

If I create a command button with the wizard and assign the code :
me!itemquery.Requeryto the on_click event my form is working fine.
Why is his code is not working if I assign it to a label? :o

Code Triggered From Label On Click Behaves Differently From Command Button On Click

Nov 7, 2006

Often I use Labels as buttons due to the fact I can colour them the way I want, and use the on click event to trigger code.
The code below however works for a command button, but not a label button.

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmdatetime"
Do While Forms!frmdatetime!OKFlag.Caption = "False"

When this code is run by clicking on a command button, it works fine.
If run by clicking on a label, frmdatetime opens, but the mouse will not work on either of the 2 open forms unless you go down to the windows task bar, jump onto another window, and back onto frmdatetime.
If I remove the loop with the DoEvents in it, then the problem does not occur.

Can anyone enlighten me as to why this behaviour occurs.

Forms :: Command Button To Unlock And Lock Fields / Edit Button?

Feb 19, 2014

I have created a web-database (? - There are globes over all the forms and tables icons) based on the Issues & Tasks template. This means that most of the data is entered and seen on the "Main" form, which has two tabs - Open Issues and Closed Issues. I have created a form that allows people at my work to input the necessary data and save it, so that it will show up on one of the two tabs. However, once a record has been created, I want to be initially locked if the ID/PK is clicked, so that data can't be changed or entered inadvertently.

SO, I changed the code so that when the ID/PK for a record is clicked, it brings up a different form, but one that looks exactly like the one that is brought up when entering a new form, but I locked all of the fields so that the information cannot be changed. It seems from what I have read that I can create a button on this form so that when clicked, it unlocks the fields on the form so that they can be changed, and then when clicked again it will lock the fields again. Is this true? If so, how can I do it? Or is there something similar I can do? I have seen codes that I could copy and paste, but I cannot figure out the place to copy and paste codes in Access 2010.

I have changed the Form properties so that Data Entry and all the "Allows" are set to No...

Forms :: Copying Command Button Appearance Properties To Other Command Buttons

Dec 17, 2013

I am rewriting an old Access 2003 database in Access 2010. When creating new command buttons, the current theme gives them a default appearance. I need to apply this appearance to old command buttons. I know there is a way to select the default button and apply its properties to others quickly. I have done it before but didn't write the process down .

Label In Front Of Button

May 25, 2006

I have a button on a form that is hidden, the button has a label over it, both are normally hidden.

When the user presses another button on the form I need these to appear but however I do it, the label appears behing the button.

Ive sent the button to the back and brought the label to the front, both by default are not visable

when the user clicks the button I run the following psuedo code

me.button.visible = true
me.buttonlabel.visible = true

any ideas?

General :: Variable Button Label

Oct 28, 2014

I have a printed form that pulls some of its data from a table.What i need is that printed form to have a variable that two area in the form can change based on who is printing the form.I have a table that has all the users data in it. the current form pulls that information from the label and places it into the for. easy enough so far right.

for example. But i need this printed form to be able to be dynamic. So for instance Tom inst sitting that the computer wanting to print the form and so on for four different users who will print the form.So the button that allows the print either needs a way to have a selection or i need four different button. So the second part of this Mark Twain quits his job and Johnny takes his place. easy enough to change the data in the table that my form is pulling the data from but the button label needs to change to that the button.

Modules & VBA :: Label As Button Does Not Finalize Textboxes

Apr 24, 2014

In Access 2007, I'm using labels as buttons because they can be made pretty. Since labels can't have focus, the focus is not shifted from whatever textbox users are in on button press. The value in that textbox is not considered updated when the macro runs, and things get messy from there.

I had been using a setfocus between two textboxes to work around this, but that seems like a copout. I now have a simple form with just a textbox and a button, so this seems like a good time to learn the right way to do this.

General :: Using A Toggle Button To Change A Label Colour?

Feb 27, 2014

Is it possible to use a toggle button to change the colour of a label?

I assume the code should be something like this:

If Me.ToggleButton = 1 Then
Label.BackColor = RGB(0, 255, 0)
ElseIf Me.ToggleButton = 0 Then
Label.BackColor = RGB(255, 255, 255)
End If

But I've tried it in the "On Click" sections and it doesn't work.

Modules & VBA :: Label As Button Doesn't Change Focus

Jan 20, 2014

I'm using a label as a button so it looks nicer, but if I press it without officially exiting the last text field I was in, then that text field doesn't update, so the vba believes it's blank or whatever it was.

I could manually setfocus to a couple different fields or have a teeny field thats hard to see to set focus to, but these both seem roundabout.

Command Button To Set Value

Apr 20, 2006

I have been working on this for awhile, and can't figure it out for the life of me!

I have a form set up with a drop down box that lets me pick from values from a table based off of the Primary Key of that table (Row Source = SELECT Order.OrderID, Order.OrderName from Order). I have a button on the form that I want to set a value (Closed) from the table entry based off of the order selected.

Pseudo code would go something like this.

Closed.Value = True Where Table.Order.OrderID = SelectedOrderID

Table.Order is a Table Named Order (obviously)
Closed is a yes/no field in my Order table
OrderID is the primarykey of the table Order
SelectedOrderID is the drop down box.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Command Button?

Apr 26, 2005

I, unfortunately, have been singled out as the Access guru in my work area. We have 223 people and the Information Manager has tasked me to modify a database he "found" to be able to track a number of things, but most important to him: performance reports.

I have posted the sample of what I currently have. What is being asked of me is a way in which to have a button or by double-clicking a block where a date would go for all other dates on the form to become non-visible while the current date stored in the computer the database is being worked from be entered in the block where the button or double-click happened. All this links to a report for the IM to be able to track what performace reports are out, and when they are due back to his section. He also wants me to be able to show which are overdue and where they are at. I am not sure if it is at all possible, but with me having spend most of last week purusing the articles on Access here, I know now that nothing is implausible if you happen to go about it the right way.

Since I have read the rules on posting, here is what I have done. I searched the forum for command button and got a lot of really cool ideas to use elsewhere in the database. I looked up the help in the program itself for command button, and got some good information on how a command button works, but I cannot make it put a date into a block. I can enter the date in any block that is a date format, but then I have dates in every block. He only wants to see the most current date in any of the blocks.

Any assistance at this point would be appreciated. If I have missed something in another thread, I apologise in advance.

Command Button

May 25, 2005

A couple of weeks ago I asked the question of how to send a single record from one table to another (Archive table) using a command button. I got a response. I have had time to work with this a little. My problem is I keep getting a error message "Run-time error '3075'; Syntax error (missing operator) in Query expression "[New ID]='. I wanted to mention that the archive table has an "archive ID" field as well as "New ID" that links the tables. I have the following code. Please help with this if possible.

" Private Sub Command667_Click()
' Save the main record if it has not been saved.
If Me.Dirty Then
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSave
End If

If MsgBox("Do you want to archive this record?", vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
Dim SQL As String

' Move main record to Grants Activity Archive.
SQL = "Insert into [Grants Activity Archive]" & _
" select * from [Grants] where [New ID]=" '" & Me.ID & "'"
CurrentDb.Execute SQL
End If

End Sub "

The error seems to refer to the & Me.ID section. I have tried putting Me.New ID and also Me.Archive ID. The Grants Activity Archives is the subform where I want the record to go. This subform is set up like a form with many fields so it is a lot of work to type the main record from the Grants table to the Grants Activity Archive table every time you want to archive a record. I hope that makes sense.

Command Button Looks...

Mar 2, 2005

Hi everyone,

This is perhaps a simple question for which I have not been able to find an answer to. I've been trying to create a form which contain command buttons, but the problem is that the look of these buttons are not similar to those found in Windows XP.

I know itís purely cosmetic :cool: - but how do I make my buttons in Access 2003 to look like those on my Windows XP?

I've seen some samples here on these forums which have the 'XP' look. Any hints on how to do this would be greatly appreciated.

All the best,

Command Button

Apr 14, 2005

Question One
I want to create a command button in the form view that once pressed opens a folder that contains a photograph. I assume that I need to use a hyperink but how is it done?

Question Two
When in the form view and I press a 'Find ' button that I created I want to have a combo box/list box on the find. The alternative to this is that the reader has to remember all of the subjects. With a combo box/list box, or similar, the user can scroll down the list and pick and choose the subject to search for.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance on either question.

Hiya guys,

I have much help from this forum during my latest project, and all help has made me progress at a nice pace....So thanks guys.

The latest problems I have is to do with command buttons.
Really simple i`m sure, but could not find the answer in the search.

I have added a command button to search a refernec number field.
By Default, the search is set to "MATCH Whole Field"
Can I change this to default to "Match Any Part of Field" ???
I have looked in the code section, and cant see where this could be done... But i`m sure its just me not understanding what I`m looking at.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Command Button

Oct 25, 2005

I have inserted a Command Button in a Form to open another form.

It opens the nominated form but the previous form is still on screen in front of the nominated form.

I have named the Command Button "Next >" just like you see on many forms and I want it to save the information, close the current form and go to the nominated form when clicked.

How is this done?

Command Button

Aug 29, 2006

I currently have a ordering database which i am using and runing fine.

The problem us I am using a tab control and command buttons with the products hard coded so for example the name of the product is the command caption and when a user clicks on the button it fills the subform product name with the commands button caption and the price is hard coded and the through vba inserted into the subforms price section an example of this would be ---

form_orderdetails.description =command1.caption
form_orderdetails.price = 1.50

The above is jus an example of what the code does in the command button

Now the problem is that i want to automate this so i can have a form called add/edit products for eg and i would like to say what tab control i would like the button to go what the button should be called (caption) and what price of the product....
