Post-open property

Previous Next

This is where you specify the action(s) that must be performed AFTER the selected window has been opened (i.e. created on the screen). Because these actions are "visible" to the user, this property is especially useful for performing queries and other time-consuming activities (the user has to wait but can see why).

Use this property rather than the Startup Actions property, which specifies the actions to perform before the window is visible.

For more information on when this property is handled relative to other similar properties, please refer to the help index entries on Events.
