Form.Move Method (Access)

expression .Move(Left, Top, Width, Height)

expression A variable that represents a Form object.

Parameters

Name

Required/Optional

Data Type

Description

Left

Required

Variant

The screen position in twips for the left edge of the object relative to the left edge of the Microsoft Access window.

Top

Optional

Variant

The screen position in twips for the top edge of the object relative to the top edge of the Microsoft Access window.

Width

Optional

Variant

The desired width in twips of the object.

Height

Optional

Variant

The desired height in twips of the object.

Only the Left argument is required. However, to specify any other arguments, you must specify all the arguments that precede it. For example, you cannot specify Width without specifying Left and Top. Any trailing arguments that are unspecified remain unchanged.

This method overrides the Moveable property.

If a form is modal, it is still positioned relative to the Access window, but the values for Left and Top can be negative.

In Datasheet View or Print Preview, changes made using the Move method are saved if the user explicitly saves the database, but Access does not prompt the user to save such changes.

The following example determines whether or not the first form in the current project can be moved; if it can, the example moves the form.

If Forms(0).Moveable Then 
 Forms(0).Move _ 
 Left:=0, Top:=0, Width:=400, Height:=300 
Else 
 MsgBox "The form cannot be moved." 
End If
