    Unanswered: How to hide system popups

    hello all,

    when i use this statement :

    Me!imgPic.Picture = "C:\picture.jpg"

    i get a systempopup progressbar indicating the loading of the picture.

    is there a way to hide or surpress it ?

    setwarnings does not work.

    I work with MsAcces2003

    regards

    You could just do a
    PHP Code:
    docmd.hourglass true
    docmd
    .echo false 
    before you start it.

    Then just do a
    PHP Code:
    docmd.hourglass false
    docmd
    .echo true 
    after words (and also make sure to do this in the error catching part).
    Me.Geek = True

    they are connected to each other 'hourglass' and 'echo' ?, because i have also tried 'echo' and no 'hourglass' but there was no change.

    anyhow i will try offcourse, thanks in advance.

    hourglass turns the mouse icon into an hourglass, nothing more. Echo controls whether or not the screen gets redrawn, you want to turn that off. Hourglass is generally used in conjuntion with Echo so the user doesn't think the application is hanging.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    using echo as part of the docmd- or application-object does not give te required result. the progressbar indicating the loading of the picture is still popping up.
