Filtered Form - Remove Toggle Filter Button?

May 16, 2012

I have a form that opens with a filter on depending on what the user is supposed to see. When I deploy this, I don't want them to see the "toggle filter" button at the top. I tried making a custom ribbon like this:

<customUI xmlns="
<ribbon startFromScratch="true">
<tab idMso="TabHome" visible="false" />

[Code] ....

But it didn't seem to have any effect. When I applied it, it didn't even create "A Custom Tab". That might be because I have disabled everything that I could disable on the "Current database" options, I'm not sure.

Can A Refresh Button On A Form Remove The Current Filter.

Mar 5, 2006

hi, i have a search form, and when you double click on the record, it opens that record in my main form (which opens filtered)

this is fine because it displays the record that i want to see

however, when i try to perform other tasks on my main form, such as choosing the id from a combo box and finding that record, it wont work because the form is still filtered, one way to get around this is to open and close the form, but is there a way that i can implement something into my refresh button that removes a form filter.

Private Sub Refresh_Page_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Refresh_Page_Click

DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, 5, , acMenuVer70

Exit Sub

MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_Refresh_Page_Click

End Sub

Toggle Button Stuck (New Record Rather Than Specified Filter)

Feb 23, 2012

Access 2010 64bit

I have an issue with the Access "Toggle Filter Button" being ticked whenever I open a form from a listbox (dbl click)...

[tblOrders] - (Key) [ID] - [Date] - [Consignee] (Text) - [OrderComplete] (Yes/No)
[tblPurchaseOrders] - (Key) [ID] - (Key) [AssignedID] - [ProductName] - [Weight]

This is just an example and it is not exactly what my database looks like however it allows me to explain easier.

tblOrders and tblPurchaseOrders are related One-to-Many ( tblOrders.[ID]->tblPurchaseOrders.[AssignedID]).

Anyways, I have a listbox on my primary form that lists tblOrders by ID, Date, Consignee and OrderComplete. When I first built the form and I bound the listbox to column 0 ([ID]) and created the event on double-click which the code looked like this:

Private Sub listOrders_DblClick(Cancel As Integer)
Dim stDocName As String
Dim stLinkCriteria As String
Dim intLinkID As String
intLinkID = Me.tblOrders.Value
stLinkCriteria = "[ID] = " & intLinkID
Debug.Print stLinkCriteria
stDocName = "frmManageOrders"
DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria

Exit Sub
End Sub

Now, for whatever reason - either something I've changed or a bug somewhere... when I double-click the list item, it opens as a new record rather than the corresponding record. I noticed that the "Toggle Filter" button on the access ribbon was ticked so I unchecked it and it immediately switched to the proper record. Why does this happen and what (if common) changes can make this appear or work this way? I am a novice with Access and I am still learning VBA. I struggle with not knowing parameters by heart, although the syntax seems to be similar to other languages I've worked with.

I had somehow enabled "Data Entry" which is located on the Property Sheet of a Form under the "Data" tab. Apparently this mode removes your ability to actually filter values properly and is intended for what you'd assume it means - Data Entry.

Forms :: Apply Filter To List Box - Toggle Button

Dec 18, 2014

I have a form with data fields and a list box, data is coming from a query. When I add a toggle button to apply a filter to the data on the form, the data in the fields are filtered, but the list box still shows all the data items. How do I use a toggle button or something on the form that when activated it filters the data in the list box and the list box only shows the filtered content.

Forms :: Must Click Toggle Filter For Form To Show Correct Data?

I have a navigation form with a combo box. The combo box has a running list of manifest numbers. I select a manifest number, then click a button that brings up a new form with data related to the selected manifest.

However, I have to click and unclick the 'Toggle Filter' button on the new form to show the correct data each time I open the form.

Modules & VBA :: Remove Specific Filter From Split Form?

Jun 27, 2013

So I have been developing a database tool that needs to have multiple ways of filtering data. I wanted to be able to display the data nicely so I'm using a split form.

As usual, there is an easy to read form on the top half and a datasheet on the bottom half. On one side of the form half I have some comboboxes that are associated with fields in the datasheet. The comboboxes apply multiple filters, narrowing the search results down. It all works fine.

However, I've been trying to figure out a way to remove just one filter at a time. There is a button to the right of each combobox that is intended to clear just one filter.

So far this is what I have. This code clears all filters.

Function removeFilter(source As String, combo As ComboBox)

'source is the field being filtered and combo is the current
'value of the combobox

With Forms("PART_QUERY")
.Filter = "[" & source & "] = " & Chr(34) & combo & Chr(34)
.FilterOn = False
End With

End Function

I had some success using another method with select statements. Every time I cleared a filter, I would also check every other combobox to see if they were not null, then reapply each one of there filters. That seems way over complicated. I'm sure I'm missing something.

How do I remove one, specific filter from a split form, after I have applied many different filters?

Forms :: Filter Button On Form As Filter

Aug 1, 2013

I have placed a filter button on a form as a filter and written the following on-click event procedure:

DoCmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdApplyFilterSort
Me.FilterOn = True

When I click the filter button I get a blank message box titled 'Microsoft Access" and an OK button, when closed the filter works perfectly.I have checked this procedure in other forms and it works without showing the blank message box.The only difference with this form is that its control source is a union query.

Toggle Button

Aug 18, 2006

Hi all,
I have a form with two subform on it and two toggle buttons.
Clicking each toggle button will open one of subform, and clicking it again will close that subform. But the problem is that I need to click the toogle button two time to open the sub form.
So, what is the problem??

This is the code under On Click event:
Private Sub Toggle0_Click()
If Me.TendComm_Label.Visible = False Then
Me.TendComm_Label.Visible = True
Me.TendComm.Visible = True
Me.TendComm_Label.Visible = False
Me.TendComm.Visible = False
End If
End Sub

Private Sub Toggle1_Click()
If Me.AuthorizedSignature_Label.Visible = False Then
Me.AuthorizedSignature_Label.Visible = True
Me.AuthorizedSignature.Visible = True
Me.AuthorizedSignature_Label.Visible = False
Me.AuthorizedSignature.Visible = False
End If
End Sub

Toggle Button Help

Jun 13, 2007

Hi, I'm very new to programming and i have very little knowledge about it. My problem is probably more simple than I may think, but for some reason I haven't been able to find a solution for it.

In MS Office, I'm making a form with a few toggle buttons which are linked to Yes/No fields on a seperate table. What I would like to do with the buttons is in their default state, which is "No", I want for the word "No" to appear on the top of the button. When the button is pressed, I need for the button to display the word "Yes". I know that it's possible to set the caption on the button to "No". Is there a way to have the caption change to display "Yes" with the press of the same button it's on? If so how? Also to have the fields reset to default with a new page on the form.
Please explain it to me as if I'm a 5 year old trying to learn programming.

Thanks in advance.

Forms :: Toggle Button Display?

Aug 12, 2015

Is there a way to show the toggle buttons in an option group as NOT selected when the form first loads up? I've cleared all the default value properties in the table and the form but it always loads as showing one of the buttons pressed/selected. I want the form to load and both buttons in the group look the same.

Forms :: Toggle Button With No Background

Nov 16, 2013

I am making a specialty form where it must toggle on or off when the user clicks on a boxed area. Since toggle backgrounds cannot be set to transparent, I need to do it some other way. I thought of either using a button to control a hidden checkbox, or just writing code altogether. The problem is that I don't know what code to use to programmatically change the state each time the box is clicked.

Toggle Button, Focus, Switching Back And Forth

Feb 6, 2006

Here's a little design problem, all of my VB script works fine, it's just a design problem:

Toggle Button (onClick) {
if pressed in, unlock protected field, pass focus to protected field
else (if not pressed in), lock protected field

Protected Field (lostFocus){
When Focus is lost, protect field then reset toggle button
See, there's no way that I know of for Access to tell what field has focus at any given moment. It lies inert until an event fires off then it responds. You can't wake Access up and tell it to go do something. So, Protected Field has to lock itself when it loses focus.

Here's the problem. If a user unlocks the field but then decides not to make a change and clicks the toggle again to lock the field, first Access fires the script to protect the field (locking it), then it resets the toggle button, then it registers the toggle button click which unlocks the field. See the problem? If the user changes their mind about changing the field and then tries to lock the field, it ends up unlocked. I need something that will work whether the user is good about it or whether the user is in a rush and forgets about it.

Toggle Button To Control Field Visibility

Jan 21, 2005

I am one of the guys that the dept. drops 1k to send to the beginner through expert level courses for Access, so I ask patience as I am new to VB coding.

I am working on a database to track patient surgical information. I am using a toggle button to control "patient surgery site" visibility, depending on the number of sites associated with them. They are labeled Site A Site B, Site C

What I want is if a patient only has one site, I press the appropriate toggle (Site_A_Button, Site_C_Button, and Site_C_Button) and only fields pertaining to Site A appear. If they have 2 sites, I can press both of the toggles for A and B, but the C will remain hidden, etc.

Each toggle controls 3 fields -
For the Site A button - Site_A, Diagnosis_A, A_Blocks_Check
For the Site B button - Site_B, Diagnosis_B, B_Blocks_Check
For the Site C button - Site_C, Diagnosis_C, C_Blocks_Check

The *_Blocks_Check also controls visibility for a respective fourth field - Site_A_Blocks , Site_B_Blocks , Site_C_Blocks

So far, I have A and B working just fine. By default, the toggle for A is set to -1 so it is visible by default. Site B and C are default 0. Both A and B work exactly as I want them to, however, site C does NOT. It has identical coding as B, however, it is visible by default (despite the "default 0") and the Site_C_Blocks visibility (controlled by the Check Box) also does not work properly. Here is the VB-

Private Sub A_Blocks_Check_Click()
If A_Blocks_Check = 0 Then
Site_A_Blocks.Visible = False
End If

If A_Blocks_Check = -1 Then
Site_A_Blocks.Visible = True
End If
End Sub

Private Sub B_Blocks_Check_Click()
If B_Blocks_Check = 0 Then
Site_B_Blocks.Visible = False
End If

If B_Blocks_Check = -1 Then
Site_B_Blocks.Visible = True
End If
End Sub

Private Sub C_Blocks_Check_Click()
If C_Blocks_Check = 0 Then
Site_C_Blocks.Visible = False
End If

If C_Blocks_Check = -1 Then
Site_C_Blocks.Visible = True
End If
End Sub

Private Sub Site_A_Button_Click()
If Site_A_Button = -1 Then
Site_A.Visible = True
End If
If Site_A_Button = -1 Then
Diagnosis_A.Visible = True
End If
If Site_A_Button = -1 Then
A_Blocks_Check.Visible = True
End If

If Site_A_Button = 0 Then
Site_A.Visible = False
End If
If Site_A_Button = 0 Then
Diagnosis_A.Visible = False
End If
If Site_A_Button = 0 Then
A_Blocks_Check.Visible = False
End If

End Sub

Private Sub Site_B_Button_Click()
If Site_B_Button = 0 Then
Site_B.Visible = False
End If
If Site_B_Button = 0 Then
Diagnosis_B.Visible = False
End If
If Site_B_Button = 0 Then
B_Blocks_Check.Visible = False
End If

If Site_B_Button = -1 Then
Site_B.Visible = True
End If
If Site_B_Button = -1 Then
Diagnosis_B.Visible = True
End If
If Site_B_Button = -1 Then
B_Blocks_Check.Visible = True
End If
End Sub

Private Sub Site_C_Button_Click()
If Site_C_Button = 0 Then
Site_C.Visible = False
End If
If Site_C_Button = 0 Then
Diagnosis_C.Visible = False
End If
If Site_C_Button = 0 Then
C_Blocks_Check.Visible = False
End If

If Site_C_Button = -1 Then
Site_C.Visible = True
End If
If Site_C_Button = -1 Then
Diagnosis_C.Visible = True
End If
If Site_C_Button = -1 Then
C_Blocks_Check.Visible = True
End If
End Sub

Now I know this is probably sloppy coding, but it was the only way I could get this to work properly at all, so feel free to critique as well.

I want to actually add additional sites (Site D and Site E), but not until I can figure out why the problem is with just A B and C.

I apologize if this seems a bit confusing, but if anyone could help out, I would be most appreciative!

Forms :: Toggle Button To Add Not Like To Multiple Queries

Apr 8, 2014

I have a form with about 10 subforms on it, all of which have queries as source objects. All of these queries are based off the same table which contains a field for Customer. What I would like to do is have a toggle button on this form that, once pressed, essentially adds a "not like" criteria to each of these subforms' queries EXNot Like "Customer_A"). When depressed, the queries/subforms should exist as is.

My first issue is that when I add a toggle button, the control wizard does not start. It starts up fine for any other control, however. For example, I imagine that on the After Update event of the toggle button I would requery each of the subforms, but I'm not sure how to add the "not like" criteria to each of the underlying queries.

Modules & VBA :: RowSource Switch Using Toggle Button

Dec 4, 2014

I have a form that contains a combo box, I used the access wizard to make this combo box select a record from a table of customers and display that record on the form.

The user then has the option to print that record.

This works fine.

I now want to be able use the same combo box but with a different table so I can select Records from a list of suppliers.

Is there a way I could use a toggle button to change the rowsource of the combo box and then use that same combo box to select records from my supplier table.

Combining Multiple Toggle Button Filters

I have a form that I use to filter a sub-form. In the form I have 4 toggle buttons that filter the corresponding fields in the sub-form quite well. What I would like to have is when one toggle is selected, the user can select a second or third toggle to further refine their inquiry. I am attaching the code that I used for the individual filters.


Private Sub Toggle_Filter_DOB_Click()
If Me.Toggle_Filter_DOB = True Then
[Forms]![Phase 2]![FormPhase2_sub].Form.Filter = "DOB = #" & Me.ATS_DOB & "#"
[Forms]![Phase 2]![FormPhase2_sub].Form.FilterOn = True
Me.Toggle_Filter_DOB.Caption = "Filter On"

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