Hello,

I am using an old version of Outlook (2002) in which I am attempting to create a custom task form. I have two text boxes within this custom task form. Textbox (A) is where a user can enter some information. After a user enters information, they can click a button to add that information to the previous information posted to the task, which is Textbox (B). Unfortunately, the scrollbars for these two textboxes act differently, even though they are basically the same. In Textbox (A), if the text entered goes longer than the height of Textbox (A), a vertical scrollbar appears. In Textbox (B), if the text entered goes longer than the height of Textbox (B), a vertical scrollbar does not apopear.

Any thoughts on why the vertical scrollbar for Textbox (B) wouldn't automatically appear?

I wanted to attach images showing the textboxes displaying and not displaying scrollbars, as well as the advanced properties for each textbox, but the max size for the images that can shared in this forum is too small to make it useful.

Thanks!

Will

In the properties for the field, is there an option to set the scrollbar? (I'll have to boot up a 2002 system to check and see if i can repro.)

In the advanced properties there is a property for scrollbar. I have it set to vertical for both textboxes, but it seems to only work for Textbox (A) not Textbox (B).

without seeing the form, its hard to say why its not working. If you want, you can email it to diane at slipstick and i'll see if i can see why its not working.




(I'm not sure screenshots would make a difference - we really need to see the form - but I will check the forum settings. I thought we had the image stuff fixed. )

Where does Outlook store the form I made so that I can send it via email? Is your email address at slipstick.com?
