InsideWidth Property [Access 2003 VBA Language Reference]
You can use the InsideWidth property (along with the InsideHeight property) to determine the height and width (in twips) of the window containing a form. Read/write Long.
expression Required. An expression that returns one of the objects in the Applies To list.
If you want to determine the interior dimensions of the form itself, you use the Width property to determine the form width and the sum of the heights of the form's visible sections to determine its height (the Height property applies only to form sections, not to forms). The interior of a form is the region inside the form, excluding the scroll bars and the record selectors.
You can also use the WindowHeight and WindowWidth properties to determine the height and width of the window containing a form.
If a window is maximized, setting these properties doesn't have any effect until the window is restored to its normal size.
The following example shows how to use the InsideHeight and InsideWidth properties to compare the inside height and width of a form with the height and width of the form's window. If the window's dimensions don't equal the size of the form, then the window is resized to match the form's height and width.
Sub ResetWindowSize(frm As Form) Dim intWindowHeight As Integer Dim intWindowWidth As Integer Dim intTotalFormHeight As Integer Dim intTotalFormWidth As Integer Dim intHeightHeader As Integer Dim intHeightDetail As Integer Dim intHeightFooter As Integer ' Determine form's height. intHeightHeader = frm.Section(acHeader).Height intHeightDetail = frm.Section(acDetail).Height intHeightFooter = frm.Section(acFooter).Height intTotalFormHeight = intHeightHeader _ + intHeightDetail + intHeightFooter ' Determine form's width. intTotalFormWidth = frm.Width ' Determine window's height and width. intWindowHeight = frm.InsideHeight intWindowWidth = frm.InsideWidth If intWindowWidth <> intTotalFormWidth Then frm.InsideWidth = intTotalFormWidth End If If intWindowHeight <> intTotalFormHeight Then frm.InsideHeight = intTotalFormHeight End If End Sub
