    Unanswered: How to hide close button in top right corner

    Is there a way to hide the close button in the top right corner of the Access container, where my db is running?

    I'm able to hide everything from forms etc inside my database, but cannot reach the minimize, maximize and close in the Access application itself.

    Normally I use Getoption or Setoption for these kind of tricks, but I can't find the name of the option.

    Anybody any thoughts?

    Re: Try this

    Thank you all for your replies.

    The code from Calvin Smith looks promising, I will definitively try it!
    These API-calls normally work like a charm.

    In the mean time, I found another nice way to do the trick at:

    Works well, as everything found in this Access knowledge supermarket.

    Cheers!
