Trap status bar changes


B

Brian

I know how to manipulate status bar text using SysCmd, but is there:

1. Any event associated with a change in the status bar content, or
2. Some way to log or halt on a change there, or
3. Any way to find out what triggered the change of text?

There are times when some status bar text will flash by so fast that I
cannot read it. I sometimes need to find out what is triggering it (such as
whether a calculated control is being recalculated, a query is being run,
etc.), and at least being able to force a pause long enough to read it (e.g.
pop up a message box with the status bar text any time it changes) might help
diagnostically, although it would be even better to be able to retrieve
information concerning the event that caused it.

No. In all versions of Access, all you can do is write text to it, or use it
as a progress meter.

you can hide it altogether if that helps...

Application.SetOption "Show Status Bar", False
