Chapter 12. Creating and Using Forms > Using the Form Design Window

Using the Form Design Window

To modify the design of your new form, click the Design View button on the toolbar to open the Form Design window (see Figure 12.9, where the Design window has been maximized and the height of the form has been increased). The floating window that appears in Form Design mode contains an undocked toolbar, called the toolbox, that lets you place new control elements on a form. Using the toolbox to add new control elements to the form is covered in the next chapter. For this exercise, hide the toolbox by clicking the Toolbox button on the Forms toolbar or by clicking the Close Window button in the upper-right corner of the toolbox.

Note

Access usually shows the toolbox automatically whenever you enter Form Design mode. If you've manually closed the toolbox, Access does not automatically display it the next time you open the Form Design window. To display the toolbox, click the Toolbox button on the Forms toolbar, or choose View, Toolbox.
