This demo highlights a text box when the text box size is too small to display all the text in the field.

Code in the Form's 'On Current' event and the Text Box's 'On Change' event call a common function that calculates the height required for the text box to display all the text, if it is greater than the text box's actual height, the border colour is changed to red and the border width changed to 2, otherwise the border colour is set to black and the border width to 1.

The demo is based on a modified Stephan Lebans database which truncated the text string to ensure that it fitted the text box.
