Make control visible

Hi all,

How can I make a control visible in a report if it is in
Page 1
it wont show at all.

Tried this code onload using this but the control shows in next page.

if(me.page = 1)then
me.ctrlName.visible = true
me.ctrlname.visible = false
end if

any thoughts?
thanks in advance :)

RE: Make control visible

The code worked for me with Access 2016.

Did you try add a debug.print in the code to see what's going on?
Which event and section of the report did you add the code?
Which section of the report contains ctrlname?
Does your code compile?
Do you have a control bound to [Page]? I didn't need this.

Consider using TGML to post your code

CODE --> vba

Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
    If (Me.Page = 1) Then
        Me.ctrlName.Visible = True
        Me.ctrlName.Visible = False
    End If
End Sub
