    Unanswered: Field Background Color

    Has anyone ever experienced fields in a form changing to the background color on their own? All my fields are set to white and sometimes (maybe when they lose focus) they change to the background color.

    The only time I know of that it's supposed to happen is when the control is disabled (ThisControl.Enable = False). Of course, if you set the visible property to false it will be invisible altogether.

    If you're speaking of a Combobox Control and you're running Access 2007, from Allen Browne's 2007 article, originally called 'The Good the Bad and the Buggy:'

    A combo may display as transparent when focus leaves it.

    The Hotfix (post SP2 installation)

    Workaround: set AlternateBackColor property of (Detail?) Section to something other than "No Color", e.g. #80000027.

    Hope this helps!

    The problem with making anything that fools are so darn ingenious!
