and each tab contains one frame,one grid,command buttons.
I've to do the following operation:
When user clicks the button "Open" in form1
form2 should be opened in the following format:
3rd Tab should be highlighted and
3rd tab frame should be visible and enable
3rd tab Btn1 and Btn2 should be visible.
I've the following problem:
Form2 is opened in the desired format but frame is disabled eventhough enable is set to true.
I've observed the following issues by putting the break points:
but when mouse is takes over the code:
it shows me.frame.visible=false
it shows me.frame.enable=true
but in runtime frame is disabled.
Kindly help me to solve this problem
Thanks in advance

Disabling All Form's Control Or The Form Upon Opening The Form.
Here is my Objective (What I want to accomploish).
Upon opening a Form Called “Search”, the Curser gets focused on a ComboBox called “comboTrans”, And the user must select a value form the ComboBox before they are allowed to move to any other Control. (That is all)
Off Course since the form is an Unbound, They should be able to close the Form any time they wish, Even thou, they have not selected any value from the ComboBox “comboTrans” yet.
I tried many different events of The control and the form itself.
The closest that I came to reach the above objective was in Lostfocus Event of the control itself, But It causes problem when the user decides to close the Form before entering any values ‘for any reason”, the Control’s msgBox Keeps Popping Up.
Therefore I decided a different technique;
And that is Upon Opening the Form, Basically disable or Lock all the controls in the above Form or the Form itself, Except the ComboBox. Then setting the focus on the Active ComboBox, and Even if the User moves to other control, with the help of a MsgBox Forcing the user to move back and select a value from the Active ComboBox
And in the AfterUpdate event of the ComboBox make all other controls Enabled or active again.
A note the form has No record Source and the Control itself is unbound and has No Control Source.

Control Stays With The Parent Form Even After Opening The New Form
I am facing a problem in my VB application.
Here is the issue:
I have one form "frmResult" which has the third party Thumbnail control and another form "frmImage" which displays the image. Here both the forms are MDIChild.
Now, whenever user clicks on the Thumbnail in "frmResult" form, "SelChange" event of the thumbnail Control in "frmResult" gets fired and it creates the new instance of the "frmImage" and displays image in it.
Though it seem that "frmImage" form has focus, but clicking on the "frmImage" form (keeping the opened "frmImage" form to it's default position) selects the thumbnail beneath the "frmImage" form and fires the "SelChange" event for the selected thumbnail control of "frmResult" and opens new "frmImage" form for the selected thumbnail.
What i have seen when i debug this issue is, "Deactivate Event" of the "frmImage" gets executed immediately and the control stays with the "frmResult" form.
What i want is once the "frmImage" form opened by clicking on the thumbnail that form should have the control.
Information About A Form Without Opening The Form
I am trying to get information on a form (width and height) but I can't seem to access that info without the form being open.
Solution B is to create an procedure that will open all necessary forms, read their width and height, and put that into a table that can be read later, then close the forms.
I would prefer to not have to do solution B...any suggestions?

I'm trying to open a second form from within my main form using docmd as follows:
' go to the next form
Dim stLinkCriteria As String
stDocName = "Form2"
DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria
My intent is to do some processing in Form2, then return and continue on in form one. What happens is: Form2 opens, but the code continues to be executed in my main form as well (with no wait for the return of Form2). Why?
Is there any way to stop the main form from executing until Form2 is done?

Opening App From Vb Form
I am trying to create a vb form that will open an application. I have tried the code:
Private Sub cmdStart_Click(Index As Integer)
retval = Shell("c:program filesapplicationstartup.exe", vbnormalfocus)
The problem is that the application does not open, however, when debugging I found that it was returning the value of a process that it was starting.
I tried the basic calculator example:
retval = shell("c:winntsystem32calc.exe", vbnormalfocus)
this worked fine.
I have taken the path from the script and pasted it into the run line and that also works.
There is other functionality that is required, but this aspect is the most important. Any assistance would be greatly appriciated.

Opening A New Window With Same Form
I am attempting to get a graphing routine to work. It plots well, but if I attempt to send a second set of data to the screen to plot, while leaving an old plot on the screen, it plots the new data on top of the old.
I'd like to be able to leave the old window with the old graph on the screen, and open a new window for the new graph. This requires using the same form in two windows. Is there some way that I can add a line of code to get the graphing form to show up in a new window each time I call the graphing function that in turn plots the data on the graphing form?
At present I simply send the data to the form via a function associated with that form, then use the "show formname" command to display the form.

Opening New Form & Using Data For It...
Probably an easy question for you guys, but I'm a beginner and tried the MSDN library. I've got my main form and on my 4th tab I want to click a button that will load a new form that I've created (say it's called Form2.vb) First how do I do that? -- sure that's easy...
Secondly, what all would I need to do in order to put a pie chart on there from data that will be input into form1 by the user? I know the code for the pie chart but basically need to know how to "export" that data into Form2 so the chart will show.
Hope that was semi-clear and hopefully we can get some help here. Thanks guys, any help is much appreciated...

Anyone seen any good examples of this or have any suggestions how I can do this? I would like a way to present the progress to the user for each of the steps I do.

Opening A Form Using Variable Name
On my Main Menu screen, i have two list boxes. Box2 displays the options based on the option selected in Box1.
When the user double clicks the option in Box2, it should open up a form.
I am trying to do this using a variable to store the form name.
var1 = "frmUsers"
for each frm in Forms
if frm.name = var1
frm.visible = true ' (or load frm)
The above code does not work and says Type Mismatch when it reaches the if frm.name = var1 line in the code.
More over, i have 23 forms in my project so far, but i can see only 3 when i do forms.count
Your help will be highly appreciated.
Form Not Opening Maximized
I have a multi-form application, and use a DAO connection to an Access database. One subroutine is run when users click a command button on form Page 7. An Excel worksheet opens and data from form Page 6 is sent to the worksheet. My problem is that when users save and close the form, the application now shows Page 6 loaded rather than Page7, assumably because the last code run reference Page 6.
To correct this, I added two lines of code to the end of the subroutine:
Unload frmPage6 frmPage7.Show
It does the trick except that frmPage7 is not maximized. This is irritating. The windowstate is set to maximize in properties. Is there a way I can set this at run-time?
Form Reloads After Opening *help*
Ok I have a form that opens and a timer that runs and does things in the background while the form is open.
when I unload the form named "Dialog" I do the following
Timer1.Enabled = False
Set Dialog = Nothing
Me.visible = False
The timer even has some loops with DoEvents in them.
After the unload it still goes back and finishes the timer sub which ends up kicking off the form load function again and the form opens.
how do I stop it from doing this?

Error Opening A Form
Here is the problem I am having. I have a MDI,when the user clicks a command button returning the
user to the application main form they get an error that reads:
Common Language Runtime Debugging services.
Application has generated an exception that could not be handled.
Process ID = 0x2a0(672) Thread ID = 0x6ec(1772)
When the user clicks ok the application ends.
Here is part of my problem. This only happens randomly maybe one time in 50 to 100 times on going from
one form to the main form, also I have not been able to duplicate this error in the development environment. It only
seems to happen when an exe is deployed to a user machine.
Here is the code that is being used in a form to take the user the the main form
Private Sub btnHome_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdHome.Click
Dim cmdBuilder As New SqlCommandBuilder(adpRelease)
Protected Overrides Sub OnClosing(ByVal e As System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs)
Dim frmMain As New frmMain()
Thanks for any help any one can give me,
Opening Form With Data?
I have a general purpose form containing a MSHFlexGrid with selected records from a very large table. If I click on a row in the grid, I can select the appropriate record in the recordset.
Upon selecting a record, I fill an array with the appropriate data, dim newRecordForm as new FormRecord. The next section of code should send the array to the newRecord form and fill the textboxes.
I KNOW I CAN....create code that will fill the textboxes such as
newRocordForm.txtBox(1).text = me.array(1)
However, it is often necessary to create multiple "newRecordForm"s and populate them with data. If I use the previous code example, there is a confusion which newRecordForm I want.
Is there a way to send the array to the newRecordForm during the newRecordForm.show statement?
I don't want to use public array's
