User Manual
« on: November 02, 2019, 10:48:54 am »
This system uses the following naming convention instead of using the controls type that way some controls can be left as default if you dont wish them included.

I will be adding more as i further develope the system

I have now uploaded 11 V1 images from the Emplyee Manager V5 View Then Here

IMPORTANT: A lot of settings depend on the Control style being used, so if you think it's not working it is probably the style you are using

  • Main forms controls start with
  • Command buttons: Cmd_
  • Text Boxes, Combo Boxes: Txt_ and or Cbo_
  • List Boxes: Lst_
  • Captions: Lbl_
  • Tab Controls: Tab_
  • Check Boxes: Chk_
  • Boxes/Borders: BRD1_
  • Inside Boxes/Borders: BRD2_
  • Option Groups: Opt_
  • Option Groups Check or Option : OChk_
  • Option Groups Toggle Buttons : OTog_
  • Lines : Ln_
  • Image Frames : Img_
  • Object Frames : OLE_
  • Subforms : Sub_

  • Subforms controls start with
  • Command buttons: SCmd_
  • Text Boxes, Combo Boxes: STxt_  and or SCbo_
  • List Boxes: SLst_
  • Captions: SLbl_
  • Captions 2: SNLbl_
  • Tab Controls: STab_
  • Check Boxes: SChk_
  • Boxes/Borders: SBRD1_
  • Inside Boxes/Borders: SBRD2_
  • Option Groups: SOpt_
  • Option Groups Check or Option : SOChk_
  • Option Groups Toggle Buttons : SOTog_
  • Lines : SLn_
  • Image Frames : SImg_
  • Object Frames : SOLE_
  • Subforms : SSub_

When using the style system you will need to take into consideration the space needed as some controls may need more between each to allow for borders etc.

  • the two tables should include all the styles you wish the user to be able to make use of.
  • There has been no allowance for tab controls without tabs or buttons, I normally set the background of these to Transparent
  • You can set a default in your preferences/Settings Table Or allow employees to select which style they like by adding a field to their table then using the Appropriate Lookup Examples will be included.
  • Caption Alignments have been removed but fields have been left in tables

Items required for database without the user interaction except a selection combo in preferences/settings to select a style.
  • Table: tbxStylesMain
  • Table: tbxStylesSub
  • Module: ModStyleManager
  • Table: tbxFonts "Local Table required in front end"

Use For Main Forms: GetFormDisplay Form, M_Style
Use For Subforms: GetSubFormDisplay Form, M_Style

Create a global variable In a modual Under Option Explicit
Public M_Style As Long

On the first screen after you have checked/Relinked the link status add the below
M_Style = DLookup("StyleID", "tblPreferences")
