9.9. Use an ActiveX Control

Problem

Access ships with the ActiveX Calendar control. How can you incorporate this and other custom controls into your Access applications?

Solution

ActiveX controls are not as commonly used in Access as they are in development environments such as Visual Basic, and some controls that work in other environments don’t work well in Access. However, a number of controls have been created to work well in Access, and Microsoft ships one such control with the product: a very useful Calendar control. This solution shows you how to use the Calendar control in both bound and unbound modes. You’ll also learn how to create a general-purpose reusable pop-up calendar form.
