Hi,
I have a form with a text box. I have set the text box "Can Grow" property to "yes". Yet, when I have text in the box which exceeds the size of the text box, it doesn't grow so as to accomidate the longer text data.
Please offer advice.
Dave

The CanGrow property only works in reports, not on forms.

The reason "Can Grow" exists on the properties of form controls is provide that functionality if the form itself is printed. THEN a control with it's "Can Grow" property set to 'yes' will PRINT large enough to accommodate the contents. It does not perform thus on the screen for forms.
Hope this helps

Stephen Lebans (who else) has a hack that gives CanGrow capability to forms:
