Access web app - Difference between On Load and On Current events RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    On access forms we get two page events: On Load and On Current. I want to know what is the difference between the two.

    On the main page, I have a sub view control. I want to insert an item in the subview everytime I change the data in the left filter.

    Is this possible?

  • On load only fires one time, and only during the form load.

    On current fires WHEN you move the forms record to the next record. So if the form in question does not have or allow navigation to another record, then on-current will not fire.

    The above explains the difference - not sure this answers or gives a means to achieve your second question.
