    Parameter query automation

    I only get flickering where doing the same actions within the Access app itself causes flickering. For example where there is a timer event. If you are attempting this over a remote connection, then all bets are off.

    Screen Flashes, Flickers and Form Refreshes

    Another cause of flickering that are timer events in either the current form or other running forms hidden in the background. Surprisingly, that doesn't seem to have been mentioned earlier in this lengthy thread...unless I missed it

    Is there any way to disable the incorporated "hover" properties for command buttons?

    I don't see any flicker on hover. There is a flicker on clicking any of the buttons. You could avoid/minimise this using Application.Echo events. Having said this I have several similar forms that show no flicker. BTW did you see my last reply to your password login thread? A reply to that...

    Screen Flashes, Flickers and Form Refreshes

    ...That includes timer events on hidden forms running in the background where no requery is involved. In fact, I've just spent a couple of hours working on an app with flickering caused by a timer event in a hidden form which is running some background security checks each time the timer runs.

    Screen Flashes, Flickers and Form Refreshes

    ...any other database or other Office programs are running. If so, the current app is closed as a security precaution against potential hacking from the external app. Turning off the timer events solves the flickering but of course that stops the checks being run 😁 Luckily its not a major issue

    Prevent Screen Updating

    As well as setting all controls hidden initially, you can minimize flicker by using Application.Echo = False before any code to set controls visible. Make sure you set Application.Echo=True after that code has finished so the display is updated Not sure why you need to resize controls if you...

    How to Open Form in Same Location as Already Open Form?

    Yes the code in the second link should allow you to do this. You may need to temporarily switch off screen updating to prevent/minimise flicker whilst changing forms

    Control 'Flickering' Problem

    ...link I gave earlier Move Forms & Controls - Mendip Data Systems The Mouse Move events include code to prevent (or at least minimise) screen flicker Otherwise, @Minty's comment in post #11 describes what I referred to earlier about 'disabling' mouse move once the change has been made If...

    Form Flickering after set recordsource

    Yes I did. The only time I got any kind of flicker was the first occasion I clicked the button when there was a slight delay. Not enough to be irritating though

    BAD form Flickr - Loading image to Image Control

    ...less blurred images than you have now. If its not too late, you could look at my folder image viewer app which does much the same thing and, I believe, doesn't suffer from form flicker. There are three forms demonstrating different ways of doing this. See Folder Image Viewer - Mendip Data...

    Macro Maximize Form On Open

    Yes its fine to use an autoexec macro for the startup form only. Having said that, there might be a slight flicker doing so as the startup form (surprisingly) loads before the autoexec macro runs. However my main point was that you can't use autoexec on the other forms which the OP also wants...

    Hiding Object Browser and running into a weird issue

    ...a new table using code. I don't have a complete list of such actions but where an action does cause it to reappear, all you can do his hide it again immediately. As this causes some screen flicker, its best to switch off screen updating first...but do remember to switch it on again!

    Hiding Object Browser and running into a weird issue

    ...Form_Load is better. I definitely wouldn't use Form_Current as that can be triggered repeatedly and would lead to distracting screen flicker. As my end users never see the ribbon or nav pane and as I use overlapping windows display rather than tabbed documents, hiding the application...

    Form Flickering

    Look at the Event tab of the form property sheet. There is a timer event if it says Event Procedure and the timer interval isn't zero as shown. If so, disable it by resetting the timer interval to zero. Does that fix the flickering?

    Form open/close transitions

    ...animation effects in Access but this generally requires a lot of code - it doesn't just 'happen' It is possible to temporarily switch off screen repainting to prevent flickering but again that's not going to provide any transition effect. So I'm baffled as to what you are describing having seen

    Why doesn't the label stay on your Form

    Dynamic setting RecordSource not display on the subform

    Well you got there quicker than me ....:banghead: I've removed all the unnecessary requery & refresh lines - all they are doing is causing lots of flickering. Also removed the double filtering of frmSummary. Much more responsive now as well
