Posted by Andrew Gould on 26 October 2016


Entering dates into a text box is awkward, difficult to validate and dull. Selecting dates from a dedicated Date Time Picker or Calendar solves all of these problems at once! This video explains how to install and register the Microsoft Date and Time Picker Control and the Microsoft Month View Control and explains how to add them to your User Form Control Toolbox. The video also briefly explains how to use these controls in your forms.

Making a  video bigger

You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:

View full screen

Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.

 

When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.

Improving the quality of a video

To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:

Settings icon

Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.

 

Choose to change the video quality:

Video quality

Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.

 

The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):

Connection speed

Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!

 

Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)?  You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
