How to have a button appear on form only when other form NOT open by assets
Posted: 27 Sep 04 (Edited 27 Sep 04)

This will open a form  and not display the close button ( or any other button). If a particular form is open in this case "TheOtherForm" then the button on "ThisForm" will be displayed.  You can use this to run reports or for admin function ( if the "TheOtherForm" is the menu then user will not see the button.
The code below  goes into the "On Open" properties [Event Procedure].on the form you want to show/hide the button.
Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)
    If IsLoaded("TheOtherForm") Then
        ' If the TheOtherForm is open
        ' the form is opened
        ' show form's Close/Other button.
        CmdCloseForm.Visible = True
        ' This form was opened as an application
        ' "Thisform" so hide the button
        CmdCloseForm.Visible = False
            End If

    End Sub
