Hide entire Access window

Several times there have been posts regarding using API's and VBA to completely hide the Access Application Window to give an application a true thick client appearance that one would expect from a "windows forms" or VB.net application.

But there was this one sample database in particular that did it perfectly - even when upsized to 2010. Also included in this sample database were examples for round shaped forms and controls and hiding the access window and other really neet api functions one could use in microsoft access - ie. changing the application background colors, etc.

If anyone knows anything about this sample db please le me know.

thank you in advance.

sounds like a PKStormy sample DB
