16.3. Display Smart Tags when Application Starts

Problem

My application makes extensive use of smart tags. Since this is a global setting, some users may have turned off the display of smart tags. How can I ensure that smart tags are displayed when my application starts up?

Solution

The display of smart tags is controlled by a checkbox in the Tools Options dialog box under the Forms/Reports tab. These settings apply to Access as a whole, and once changed, take effect for all running applications. Figure 16-5 shows the dialog box with the display of smart tags turned on.

The best place to set options for your application is in a startup form, which can run code to ensure that settings are the way you need them to be. The sample application is configured to use a form named frmStartup, by setting the Display/Form Start Page property in the Tools Startup dialog box, as shown in Figure 16-6.
