Full Version: Highlight Box for Attention Grabber
UtterAccess Forums > Microsoft® Access > Access Forms
I have a set of radial buttons that control what tab pages show on my form.
want set an outline around the tab control when the user clicks the radial box, but I want to outline to only show for about 2 seconds, just to let the user know what control changed when they clicked the button.
How do I do that?
One way I can think of is to create hidden rectangles with different colored borders for each tab control. Then in the AfterUpdate event of the radio buttons, make the appropriate rectangle visible for 2 seconds. To have the program wait for 2 seconds, search UA for some function called Sleep(). HTH
