Height Property [Access 2003 VBA Language Reference]
You can use the Height property (along with the Width property) to size an object to specific dimensions. Read/write Integer for all objects in the Applies To list except for the Report object, which is a read/write Long.
expression Required. An expression that returns one of the above objects.
Enter a number for the desired height in the current unit of measurement. To use a unit of measurement different from the setting in the Regional Options dialog box in Windows Control Panel, specify the unit, such as cm or in (for example, 5 cm or 3 in).
For controls, you can set the default for this property by using the default control style or the DefaultControl property in Visual Basic.
In Visual Basic, use a numeric expression to set the value of this property. Values are expressed in twips.
For report sections, you can't use a macro or Visual Basic to set the Height property when you print or preview a report. For report controls, you can set the Height property when you print or preview a report only by using a macro or an event procedure specified in a section's OnFormatevent property setting.
You can't set this propery for an object once the print process has started. For example, attempting to set the Height property in a report's Print event generates an error.
Microsoft Access automatically sets the Height property when you create or size a control or when you size a window in form Design View or report Design view.
The height of sections is measured from the inside of their borders. The height of controls is measured from the center of their borders so controls with different border widths align correctly. The margins for forms and reports are set in the Page Setup dialog box, available by clicking Page Setup on the File menu.
Note To set the left and top location of an object, use the Left and Top properties.
The following code resizes a command button to a 1-inch by 1-inch square button (the default unit of measurement in Visual Basic is twips; 1440 twips equals one inch):
Me!cmdSizeButton.Height = 1440 ' 1440 twips = 1 inch. Me!cmdSizeButton.Width = 1440
