Ribbon bug fixed in AC2010 ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In AC2007, if  a start-up form is assigned and it has a Ribbon assigned, that Ribbon does not appear if there is an application-level ribbon assigned...i.e. the application ribbon takes precedence.
    If you then close and then re-open the form, it's ribbon STILL does not appear.
    However, if you don't assign the form as the start-up form, all works well.
    Bottomline: in AC2007, start-up forms should not have any Ribbon assigned to them if you also have an application ribbon.

    I imagine that most developers would use a startup form without any ribbon, as I do.

    My startup form is never seen, when it is loaded, it runs the code that does all the checking and setting up of various settings. When it has finished checking and setting up, it opens the splash screen, followed by the main menu form.

    I would imagine that the same would happen in A2010.

  • You are right in that it doesn't seem like a standard "set-up".....
    but I was just testing some code that used both an app ribbon and a form ribbon...
    and the form just happened to be the start-up !!

    The startup form will be loaded as usual. I believe the issue here is that
    if the current DB has a ribbon and startup form with a different ribbon
    assigned, then the DB ribbon will win and the one on startup form just be
    ignored.

    I reported that as bug earlier this year.

    Yes, it does.
