Tooltips disappearing!

    I have a rather annoying problem with Access 2003. When I'm typing code
    (VBA), the tooltip showing the syntax appears, but then disappears quickly so
    I don't get a chance to read it. Also, the options box that appears when, for
    instance, a comma is typed whilst entering a command, appears and disappears
    just as quickly! It didn't do it when I first installed it...

    Can I stop this from happening?

    Hi, Rich.

    Do you have any forms open that have the Timer event and the TimerInterval
    Property set? If so, close these forms while you're editing code so that the
    VB Editor doesn't lose focus while you're working with it.

    HTH.

    Hi,

    Yes, there was a form running a realtime clock in the background. I've
    closed it and all seems ok at the moment. Thanks alot for that fix.

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!
