Code to restore MS-Access window


J

JimP

The code below works well to suppress and restore the MS-Access window, and
only display a form when the window is suppressed. However, upon restoring
the window I can't seem to find a way to make any Menubar or Toolbar
visible. e.g.

DoCmd.ShowToolBar "Menu Bar", acToolbarYes

...has no affect. Any ideas?

Code to Restore Access after hiding it using apiShowWindow

Here is a simple fix to restore MS Access when you call the function for anything other than 0 (SW_HIDE)...

Insert the line in red below;

Code:
...
fSetAccessWindow = (loX <> 0)
[B][COLOR="Red"]Application.SetOption "Show Status Bar", True[/COLOR][/B]
End Function
