Add Slider Bars to Visualize and Input Values to Microsoft Access
Progress Meters, Slider Bars let you visualize the relative size of
a value within a range. Slider Bars have the additional feature of
letting you adjust the value graphically. By dragging the slider, the
underlying value changes.
By using the Slider control in your Microsoft Access forms, you can
give your users a whole new way to view and enter data. The control can
be used to modify another field or control.
Slider Bars can also be added to reports to display data.
Using the Slider Control
Adding a Slider to your form or report is very simple. Place the
control on your MS Access form or report and adjust its size. Then set its
- Horizontal or vertical orientation
- Direction which the slider increases
- Tick Style (none, one side, both sides)
- Tick Frequency
- Background color
- Minimum and Maximum values
- Small and Large Change sizes
- Starting value
- Control Source for data binding (optional)
The Slider Bar's OnChange event occurs when the user moves the slider
so you can update other controls when the user makes updates. Simply
reference the Value property of the slider.
