Form.CurrentSectionTop property (Access)

You can use this property to determine the distance in twips from the top edge of the current section to the top edge of the form. Read/write Integer.



expression A variable that represents a Form object.


The CurrentSectionTop property setting changes whenever a user scrolls through a form.

For forms whose DefaultView property is set to Single Form, if the user scrolls above the upper-left corner of the section, the property settings are negative values.

For forms whose DefaultView property is set to Continuous Forms, if a section isn't visible, the CurrentSectionTop property is equal to the InsideHeight property of the form.

The CurrentSectionTop property is useful for finding the positions of detail sections displayed in Form view as continuous forms or in Datasheet view. Each detail section has a different CurrentSectionTop property setting, depending on the section's position on the form.


The following example displays the CurrentSectionLeft and CurrentSectionTop property settings for a control on a continuous form. Whenever the user moves to a new record, the property settings for the current section are displayed in the lblStatus label in the form's header.

Private Sub Form_Current() 
 Dim intCurTop As Integer 
 Dim intCurLeft As Integer 
 intCurTop = Me.CurrentSectionTop 
 intCurLeft = Me.CurrentSectionLeft 
 Me!lblStatus.Caption = intCurLeft & " , " & intCurTop 
End Sub
