hyperlinkaddress in subform niet working

    In an Access (2003) Form i have a few images with the hyperlinkaddress
    property set.

    When i execute the form i correctly see a hand cursor and a tooltip text
    with url in it.

    When i place the form as a subform in a different form the cursur stays
    a pointer and the tooltip never appears.

    How do i make this work?

    The whole reason why i have the hyperlinkaddress set is because i want a
    button(bar) with a transparent background. This isn't possible (at least
    i couldn't find a suitable active-x object for it) so i decided to use
    plain images and an onClick event. The hyperlinkaddress helped it become
    more like a button by displaying a hand cursus and a tooltip text
    (couldn't find a property where i could set the cursor type).

    I'd appreciate any answer.
    (either fixing the hyperlinkaddress or using a suitable buttonbar)

    Hi Sam,

    Buttons in Access 2003 do have a transparent property. It's the fifth
    property from the top on the all tab of the property window.

    The wierd thing is that it also makes the image transparent.
    Something you would never want in my opinion, so i don't understand why
    they build it like that.

    I've tried an .ico and a .bmp file. Both disapear.

    So, the transparent option it totally worthless.
    Unless i'm doing something else wrong.

    But, thanks for your reply.

    Sam.
