In this video I will show you how to create a completely custom look for your forms. Whether you want to design something modern, futuristic, or you're feeling nostalgic for the good old days of Windows XP, you can make your forms look EXACTLY the way you want them with this technique. You can have a custom titlebar, buttons, and more.

Anthony from UK (a Learning Connection member) asks, "Is there a way to change the properties of the form title bar? I would like to left-align the caption, change the font, font color, and perhaps the background color. Can you do this in Access?" (Paraphrased)

I'll show you how to add click-and-drag functionality our custom forms. You'll learn about the MouseDown and MouseMove events.
