- The EZ Extensions Digital Clock is a stand
alone form that shows the current system time. It's unique feature is it can
be resized by grabbing the side borders of the form and making the form
larger or smaller. The developer can change the appearance of the clock
including font, colors, time formats, etc.
Pop-up Calendars -
Several pop-up calendars are included.
These are self-contained forms that can be opened by themselves or called by
another form to fill a value in a control. There are buttons to move ahead
or behind a month or year at a time. If you are dealing with time, you can
set the time by pressing the button with a picture of a clock on it and a
time clock will appear to make entry of time easy.
Single Month Pop-up Calendar
Pop-Up Calendars are used frequently to
fill a form control with a date. Microsoft Access itself has an OCX or
Active X calendar control. You can use the Pop-Up Calendar here instead of
the Active X calendar control when you want the flexibility to modify the
appearance and the functionality of the calendar. The calendars here provide
the following features:
- standard alone form that can be opened
to just view a monthly calendar
- pop-up form that will return to the
calling form and control, the selected date and optionally time
- easy means to create a form with more
than one calendar by using the monthly calendar as a subform
- sizable calendars
- calendars that can be changed in
appearance (fonts, colors, control locations, sizes, etc)
- display pictures on each day
- developer control of the interface to
- all self contained with no global
variables, modules, or external references
- completely written in Access Basic
- set starting day of week
- This is a time selection pop-up form that
you can use to enter a time. Easily choose the current time or press the
buttons to enter the time you want. When you press OK, the form will return
the time to the calling form.
- There are times when you need to create
records based on date and time. These could include task schedules, events,
meetings, appointments, deadlines, deliveries, etc. You might also want to
create a schedule to perform or execute queries, macros, procedures, or
other programs. With the Event Scheduler wizard, you can easily create
entries in a table based on user input. Your application could then use the
table as appropriate for your specific needs.
The structure of the tables and wizards can
be modified as necessary, but they could be used as is to provide a working
system. The wizard can create one time, hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly
This is an example of the Wizard screen displaying
daily occurance options. The options displayed may vary
depending on the event and frequency the user selects. Click on the picture
to view a larger version of the example.
- The Event Processor interface is designed to
process events at certain dates and times and execute specific instructions.
These events could be simply to display a message, or actually run a query,
macro, function, or any other program. This capability is useful to automate
application and data maintenance, including batch processing, posting,
backups, replication, compressing, tracking capacities, etc. The system also
can record when an event occurred as well as the status or result. A sample
table with holidays for the years 1999, 2000, and 2001 is included.
– Based on a table of events, these redesigned
reports can print daily, weekly, and monthly calendars. Each report can list
the events to occur.
– Simulate the Access Database container and
modify the contents to be what you want your user’s to see. You can use
these methods to create other user application interfaces.
