ObjectFrame.IsVisible property (Access)

You can use the IsVisible property to determine whether a control on a report is visible. Read/write Boolean.

Syntax

expression.IsVisible

expression A variable that represents an ObjectFrame object.

Remarks

You can set the IsVisible property only in the Print event of a report section that contains the control.

You can use the IsVisible property together with the HideDuplicates property to determine when a control on a report is visible and show or hide other controls as a result. For example, you could hide a line control when a text box control is hidden because it contains duplicate values.

Example

The following example uses the IsVisible property of a text box to control the display of a line control on a report.

Paste the following code into the Declarations section of the report module, and then view the report to see the line formatting controlled by the IsVisible property.

Private Sub Detail_Print(Cancel As Integer, PrintCount As Integer) 
 If Me!CategoryID.IsVisible Then 
 Me!Line0.Visible = True 
 Else 
 Me!Line0.Visible = False 
 End If 
End Sub
