i am after a little information on a query i have.
I have three forms that are fairly similar in the process that they take, the only difference is an extra textbox and different SQL DB Updates.
so what i plan to do is merge all three forms together and get the form to decide what to be depending on what the user selects (button1 , 2 or 3).
I have got the main display setup i just want to know if there is a way to hide the two spare textboxes when they are not needed (these are in the middle of the form), currently i just hide them, but by doing this the form does not look tidy when the user selects the form from button1 (theres a bit of blank space in the middle where the two textboxes are).
So my question is, is there a way to change the size of a form in the middle so what it does is hide the two other textboxes are hidden and the form looks smaller. I have googled it and found a sliding effect trick, which does look cool and i will be trying, i just thought that if i asked you guys there might be an easier way.
