expression A variable that represents a DoCmd object.

Parameters

Name Required/Optional Data type Description
ToolbarName Required Variant A string expression that's the valid name of a custom toolbar you've created. If you run Visual Basic code containing the ShowToolbar method in a library database, Microsoft Access looks for the toolbar with this name first in the library database, and then in the current database.
Show Optional AcShowToolbar An AcShowToolbar constant that specifies whether to display or hide the toolbar and in which views to display or hide it. The default value is acToolbarYes.

Remarks

You can use the ShowToolbar method to display or hide a custom toolbar.

If you want to show a particular toolbar on just one form or report, you can set the OnActivate property of the form or report to the name of a macro that contains a ShowToolbar action to show the toolbar. You can then set the OnDeactivate property of the form or report to the name of a macro that contains a ShowToolbar action to hide the toolbar.
