ControlBox Property [Access 2003 VBA Language Reference]
Specifies whether a form has a Control menu in Form view and Datasheet view. Read/write Boolean.
expression Required. An expression that returns one of the objects in the Applies To list.
The ControlBox property uses the following settings.
|Yes||True (–1)||(Default) The form has a Control menu in Form view and Datasheet view.|
|No||False (0)||The form doesn't have a Control menu in Form view and Datasheet view.|
Note Setting the ControlBox property to No also removes the Minimize, Maximize, and Close buttons on a form.
It can only be set in form Design view.
To display a Control menu on a form, the ControlBox property must be set to Yes and the form's BorderStyle property must be set to Thin, Sizable, or Dialog.
Even when a form's ControlBox property is set to No, the form always has a Control menu when opened in Design view.
Setting the ControlBox property to No suppresses the Control menu when you:
- Open the form in Form view from the Database window.
- Open the form from a macro.
- Open the form from Visual Basic.
- Open the form in Datasheet view.
- Switch to Form or Datasheet view from Design view.
The following example sets the ControlBox property on the WarningDialog form to False (0):
Forms!WarningDialog.ControlBox = False
