You can use the IsVisible property in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code to determine whether a control on a report is visible. Read/write Boolean.

expression.IsVisible

expression Required. An expression that returns one of the objects in the Applies To list.

Remarks

The IsVisible property uses the following settings.

Setting

Description

True

(Default) The control is visible.

False

The control isn't visible.

Note: You can set the IsVisible property only in the Print event of a report section that contains the control.

You can use the IsVisible property together with the HideDuplicates property to determine when a control on a report is visible and show or hide other controls as a result. For example, you could hide a line control when a text box control is hidden because it contains duplicate values.

Example

The following example uses the IsVisible property of a text box to control the display of a line control on a report. The report is based on a Products table and uses three controls with the following properties.

Private Sub Detail_Print(Cancel As Integer, _

If Me!CategoryID.IsVisible Then
Me!Line0.Visible = True

End Sub
