RecordSelectors Property

Applies to

Form Object

You can use the RecordSelectors property to specify whether a form displays record selectors in Form view. Read/write Boolean.


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


The RecordSelectors property uses the following settings.


Visual Basic




(Default) Each record has a record selector.



No record has a record selector.

Note: You can set this property by using the form's property sheet, a macro, or Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code.

You can use this property to remove record selectors when you create or use a form as a custom dialog box or a palette. You can also use this property for forms whose DefaultView property is set to Single Form.

The record selector displays the unsaved record indicator when a record is being edited. When the RecordSelectors property is set to No and the RecordLocks property is set to Edited Record (record locking is "pessimistic" — only one person can edit a record at a time), there is no visual clue that the record is locked.


The following example specifies that no record has a record selector in the "Employees" form.

Forms("Employees").RecordSelectors = False
