    Unanswered: Large tick boxes

    Hi,

    I am trying to increase the size of tick boxes on an access form. I have searched this forum and found one method by using an unbound text box. The problem with this is it copies the tick over on each individual record.

    I am placing the standard tick box behinde the big box to relate to my table.

    Is there a way to increase the size of the tick box and have it reset on each record?

    Regrads.

    I suppose you could use a text box control, constrain the values to be either a space or suitably large "X", mind you the size would be relative to screen resolution and screen size

    I would add a label as well as the check box on the form. NOTE: for some reason the label that is created when you add a checkbox WILL NOT work properly. So a separate label and a check box. Name the label, lbl1, and the checkbox, chk1 and then add this code:

    Code:
    Private Sub lbl1_Click()
    
        lbl1.Caption = IIf(lbl1.Caption = "X", "", "X")
        Chk1.Value = IIf(lbl1.Caption = "X", True, False)
        
    End Sub
    Now, size the label to be as big as you want. Also, change the font size of the X to be as big as you want.
