    Angry Unanswered: Colors in list boxes

    Does anyone have any idea how records in a list box can have various background colors depending on various criteria? Can other controls be used, or is this simply impossible in MS Access?

    Thanks

    sincerely

    Hullo, Vestigo. As far as I know, what you are looking for is impossible with Access. I'd be THRILLED to be proved wrong, but... You can only do so much to make the app user friendly. My guess is that is what you are trying this for.

    Hoping to be proved wrong,

    I'm afraid your right my friend.

    But remember, there are a lot of good proposals on this forum.
    I will work with it a little, but if no good ideas pop within some few hours I need to tell my customer to forget about this "crazy" request.
    But what I was hoping for was some additional "controls" with this color feature.

    By the way, does anyone know what EVENT that triggs using the vertical scroll bar?
    Can I extract the number that pop up when using this scroll bar ?


    sincerely
