I have a user who is visual impair I was wondering if there is a way to increase the font size of a list box by clicking on a command button. For example font is currently 14 if the user clicks the command button it increases the font to 22. But if another user logs on it has returned to 14.

Thanks Ron

You could do that but unless the column widths are large enough, the whole text may not be readable.

Code for button's click event

Code:
if me.Yourlistname.fontsize <> 22 then
    Me.yourListName.fontsize=22
else
    Me.yourListName.fontsize=14
endif

Ron, adding on ... you might also want to change:
  • ColumnWidths
  • ListWidth
and, if you have space:
  • Width

ps, Ron, if you keep track of users in a table, you could keep track of their preferences too -- and set the listbox (and other control) properties in the Form Open event

Actually, I use database properties to keep track of things for each person's front-end

Whilst you can increase the size of a listbox, surely the user will still have trouble with reading the rest of the form.

Another approach is to allow users with visual impairments to zoom the entire form.
I have code to do exactly that as part of my automatic form resizing routines.

For more information, see my extended website article at http://www.mendipdatasystems.co.uk/automatic-form-resizing-2/4594565280.
The zoom feature is on page 2

Thank you all I have started at the listbox and will look at the form as an option. My user will really appreciate you help. Thanks Ron
