A2K- "floating" form similar to Northwind splash screen, i.e., as an info box?

    I've been looking in the archives but I must not be anywhere near the
    correct term for what I'm trying to which is why nothing is coming up.

    I remember seeing something in Northwind example db, but mine seems to
    be corrupted and I'd have to reinstall but I'm going to describe what
    I remember seeing. It was a sort of splash screen that one could then
    tick on a box in the corner to not have that box come up after that.
    I imagine now that I know more than I did back then, that it was
    probably a form with a graphic with accompanying code in the vbe (?).

    I'd like to create something similar as sort of help box. I have a
    form and it has a close box so that a user can open and close this
    info box, but it opens up as a full-sized form. Is there a way to
    make this a free-standing box like that Northwind "splash screen"-type
    thing I describe above?

    Thanks. :eek:D

    Is this something that is too difficult to do? TIA. :eek:D
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
