Rather than basic text menus or buttons, Icon Menus let you combine graphics with text for menu selections on your Microsoft Access forms.
This display was popularized by Microsoft Outlook and lets you visually identify selections with a picture.
Find or create your own graphic files and give your users a more intuitive experience in your applications.

Once you've placed and customized the Icon Menu on your form, you're ready to handle the user's selection. The Icon Menu control generates an OnSelect event when the user selects an item. Simply respond to the user's choice.
Any icon menu property including the graphic pictures can be modified via VBA. You can also respond to OnHighlight and OnUnHighlight events when a user moves on or off an item on your MS Access form.
