Access forms Top Padding doesn't work for ComboBox Control RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    I'm using Access 2007 and in a form I'm inserting a ComboBox with Height = 0,801 cm like this

    Now I want to vertically center the content. I'vd tried Top Margin and the result wasn't very nice:

    Also tried change the Top Padding... Doesn't have a "reaction"... This means no changes!

    Can someone tell me why there is this property - Top Padding ?   

    Regards.

  • Unfortunately, Microsoft sometimes puts properties in the properties box that don't fit the control. I increased the height of a combo box in 2010 and changed the Top margin a bit. The dropdown arrow button still filled the box. Did you save and close the form and then re-open it? I'm wondering if the box looked correctly sized after that. Maybe it was just your graphics driver getting confused.

  • Work-around is Access's middle name!

  • Ha-ha-ha. Isn't Access wonderful?

    If you choose a transparent background or a background the same as the form's color it will not look that way.
