Different Form Design Based on Mode New, Edit or View

Hi,

Is there a way to have a form display differently based on the mode that it is in? When my users are viewing the data in a form I want certains fields, like name, to be larger and bolder. When they are editing I want something more utilitarian, where they fill in the fields.

Does this make sense? I want them to view the data one way, but enter the data another. But it seems like any adjustments I make, like sizing, carry through whether in edit mode or view mode.

Re: Different Form Design Based on Mode New, Edit or View

If the changes aren't too different between form modes you can modify the different properties of the controls to display differenlt based on form mode.

 

Example of changing the text size of a label based on Form mode.

Label.Size > If(Form1.Mode = View, 22, 10.5)

 

The other thing you can do which might be easier is to create different forms for each mode that will have a different layout.

Yeah I considered using If statements, but that would be a huge pain given the scope. 

I tried out different forms like you said and I think the best way would be to use 2 different forms based on conditions like form mode.

Thanks
