Application.RefreshTitleBar Method

Office 2007
The RefreshTitleBar method refreshes the Microsoft Access title bar after the AppTitle or AppIcon property has been set in Visual Basic.

Syntax

expression.RefreshTitleBar

expression   A variable that represents an Application object.

Return Value
Nothing

Remarks

For example, you can change the caption in the Microsoft Access title bar to "Contacts Database" by setting the AppTitle property.

The AppTitle and AppIcon properties enable you to customize your application by changing the title and icon that appear in the Microsoft Access title bar. The title bar is not automatically updated after you have set these properties. In order for the change to the title bar to appear, you must use the RefreshTitleBar method.

In a Microsoft Access database, you can reset the AppTitle and AppIcon properties to their default value by deleting them from the Properties collection representing the current database. After you delete these properties, you must use the RefreshTitleBar method to restore the Microsoft Access defaults to the title bar.

It the path to the icon specified by the AppIcon property is invalid, then no changes will be refled in the title bar when you call this method.

Example

The following example sets the AppTitle property of the current database and applies the RefreshTitleBar method to update the title bar.

Visual Basic for Applications
Sub ChangeTitle()
    Dim obj As Object
    Const conPropNotFoundError = 3270
    
    On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
    ' Return Database object variable pointing to
    ' the current database.
    Set dbs = CurrentDb
    ' Change title bar.
    dbs.Properties!AppTitle = "Contacts Database"
    ' Update title bar on screen.
    Application.RefreshTitleBar
    Exit Sub
    
ErrorHandler:
    If Err.Number = conPropNotFoundError Then
        Set obj = dbs.CreateProperty("AppTitle", dbText, "Contacts Database")
        dbs.Properties.Append obj
    Else
        MsgBox "Error: " & Err.Number & vbCrLf & Err.Description
    End If
    Resume Next
End Sub
