Hi Ashley,

In MS Access you can select a startup form that will open when the
database file is opened. You can also hide all of the development stuff
(buttons, toolbars, etc) when said form opens so it appears to the end
user as an application. How do I do this in Base? I have been struggling
for a week trying to figure this out. Heck, I am struggling with Base
period, it is much more difficult to use than Access, but I can overlook
that due to the power it has that Access does not. Still, how do I hide
the development stuff and open my form when the ODB file is opened?

You might want to check out the Switchboard extension to see whether
that goes in the direction you're looking at.

otherwise you will have to write a macro to bind the loading of the form
to the event of opening the ODB file and probably fiddle with xcu/xcs
(xml configuration files) that deal with the toolbars, bearing in mind
that some of the toolbars are dependent on the main LibreOffice app and
probably can not be completely removed.
