Vba turn off screen updating
I suspect a major reason for this is not being able to turn off screenupdating for powerpoint. Below is the code-snippet I have borrowed and an example of how I try to call it: Option Explicit ' User Defined Error codes Const ERR_NO_WINDOW_HANDLE As Long = 1000 Const ERR_WINDOW_LOCK_FAIL As Long = 1001 Const ERR_VERSION_NOT_SUPPORTED As Long = 1002 ' API declarations for Find Window() & Lock Window Update() ' Use Find Window API to locate the Power Point handle.
The bad news is that it doesn't make any difference to speed in my testing in PPT 2013.Ed Disabling the screen in Access is the same as in Excel. Instead of using a macro, link your button to a subroutine and execute the queries from there.Ed Sorry, looks like it's as simple as Application. Here is a clip from a good help page by Tony D'Ambra.I suspect this is because the code is run through Excel (maybe I should have been more clear on that). By turning off the screen updating your macros will run much faster.Sometimes you want to turn on the screen updating afteryou have turned it off, e.g.
when you want to display a dialog or a message box tothe user.
Raise Number:=vb Object Error ERR_VERSION_NOT_SUPPORTED, _ Description:="Newer version." Exit Property End Select If h Wnd = 0 Then ' window was not found... Raise Number:=vb Object Error ERR_NO_WINDOW_HANDLE, _ Description:="Unable to get the Power Point Window handle" Exit Property End If 'Attempt to lock the window If Lock Window Update(h Wnd) = 0 Then ' attempt failed... Raise Number:=vb Object Error ERR_WINDOW_LOCK_FAIL, _ Description:="Unable to set a Power Point window lock" Exit Property End If Else 'State = True 'Unlock the Window to refresh Lock Window Update (0&) Update Window (h Wnd) h Wnd = 0 End If End Property Thanks, I was actually able to figure out this myself once I saw that the class was named "Class1" by default and not Screen Updating.
However, I still can't get it to work and when reviewing the code I can't see what should invoke the lockwindowcommand?
Is there a way to automatically minimize/hide query windows or disable screen update?
I know this is possible in Excel by setting application.screenupdating =false, is there a similar way in Access?
Is their a way of turning off screen updating, so that whatever I am doing the screen truly does not update?
