Alterations on the run
As you work with a form, you will, sometimes, find controls would benefit from minor tweaking. You may want to change the color of a text box, change the font that's used, or remove scroll bars.
You may have been told switch to Design view to make changes. However, you can display the property sheets for a control while you're in Form view.
To do so, click the Properties on the View menu, Right-click, or press [Alt][Enter].
As in Design view, the displayed properties relate to the control that is selected on the form. The property changes you make are reflected on the fly.
You will be prompted to resave your form when you close it.
