Eliminating toolbars

Eliminating toolbars

Eliminating toolbars

I'm running into a problem with toolbars taking up too much space on users' screens when they are in a lower resolution (800x600), but I can't find a way to stop the toolbars from showing.  Is there some code I could put behind a form or something else I could do that would suppress the display of any toolbars?  The toolbars really shouldn't show unless I'm doing design work anyway.

By the way, if I try to right click on the toolbars (or even a control on a form, for that matter), the normal options menu is not displayed...nothing is displayed.

Currently I'm using the .adp file.  Do I need to go to the .ade file for users to eliminate this problem?


RE: Eliminating toolbars

This is how I've done it: This runs on opening the initial form for the project.  


Public Sub HideAllToolbars()
Dim I As Integer

For I = 1 To CommandBars.Count
If CommandBars(I).Name <> "PMMonthlyRep" Then CommandBars(I).Enabled = False
Next I

End Sub

I have a custom toolbar PMMotnhlyRep which includes the items I want to make available to them.  

Remembering to re-enable toolbars when closing the database:


Public Sub AllowAllToolbars()

Dim I As Integer

For I = 1 To CommandBars.Count
CommandBars(I).Enabled = True
Next I

DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Print Preview", acToolbarWhereApprop

End Sub
  This runs when exiting the system.  Other custom toolbars open & close at different points - eg I have a custom toolbar when displaying a report.
