Thanks Rob! I will definitely be a-playin' with this one.
Glad to hear your contracts are getting extended. And it's always grand when both the money and co-workers are good. Kinda makes up for the long hours. See ya!

Hi Rob and Mark,
Is I mentioned above, fading the application window out and in has a curious side effect on the database window. It will flicker a lot when moved (once the app window has been faded back in). Hence Chris removed that particular code from his final example.
You can find the original thread in the VIP forum.

If the system is struggling with the code as it is on the DoEvents call, will looping ease the pressure a bit and get the fade speed back to normal?

The db I'm using this in (posted here) seems to get 'bored' after a while. Initial fade speeds are great but then it really starts to lag and the fade takes a lot longer. I'm wondering if changing the method will help at all....?

hi becki...

better late than never... sad.gif

theoretically, it should... by using the DoEvents function, you're allowing the system to process other requests, this could range from microsoft update, anti-virus, other applications calls. if you omit the DoEvents, Access will hog all the CPU time just for the fading process until completed... i think sad.gif
