caferacer is on a distinguished road
Pencil/Triangle Dirty/Undo

I have a label on a main form which I highlight/un-highlight to mimic the on-dirty (pencil) and on-undo (back to triangle) of the record selectors.

But canít think how to un-highlight the label background when the pencil switches back to a triangle when the autosave happens, when you move to a subform.

I tried it playing about with the form, subform lost focus, but with no success.

Any ideas, thanks.

Re: Pencil/Triangle Dirty/Undo

why not just add the record selectors?
