  1. In Topic: Combobox stop exucuation

    Posted 5 Jun 2015

    I haven't tried this but just a guess at an attempt would be in the dropdown event, if the combobox.items.count = 0 then open the new form.
  2. In Topic: Combobox stop exucuation

    Posted 5 Jun 2015

    You might look at the Activated event of the form. If the user clicks on the main form and adds a new department and then clicks back to this form it becomes activated at which point you could run this code to ensure that your combobox contains all the departments that were added. This way the code wouldn't run again until the form is activated again, meaning it has been deactivated first. So as long as the form remains the focus and you're working in it, you shouldn't be triggering this code multiple times.
  3. In Topic: Combobox stop exucuation

    Posted 5 Jun 2015

    If the reader does not have any rows then display the message

    otherwise While dread.Read, add rows to the combobox

    You're currently checking each time and once the end of the reader is reached, .HasRows becomes false and is triggering your messagebox.

    I would also suggest you moving this out of this particular event as every time the combobox is opened, this code would clear and refill the combobox and from a quick look at your code, this really isn't necessary.
  4. In Topic: How to focus button after Timepicker leave ?

    Posted 2 Jun 2015

    Is there a reason that you didn't set it up to take focus using the tab order?

    Click on Tab Order in the view menu when you are in the Design portion and you should be able to select the order you want the focus to move as you tab.

    In this case after selecting the datetimepicker, your next selection would be the button.

    Another option could be to set the default button to the button so that once the date is entered, the enter key can be pressed to click said button.
  5. In Topic: Trying to get ID from a multiple column DropDownList box control

    Posted 2 Jun 2015

    Ah, sorry, I see what you're saying. However, you should be able to use the str() function

    For example LogYear is of type Number in the Access Table

    I could then use
    Dim da As New OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT FirstName + ' - ' + LastName + ' - ' + str(LogYear) As FullName, EmployeeID FROM Employee", con)
