- Before we start creating…and using macros and actions,…we need to understand a little bit…about something called an event.…An event is something that occurs within our application,…usually because the user has done something,…and based on their action, the event triggers,…and for some of the events we have the ability…to then jump in and add code at that point.…So if we take a look at the Actions button…for our entire view,…there are actually two events listed here.…It doesn't say, "Hey, we're events," but they are.…
One's called "On Load" and one's called "On Current."…And if I have a particular control selected,…and I look at the actions, I see two events,…On Click and After Update.…Let's spend a moment talking about those.…If we look at the form as a whole,…the On Load action happens once, when the form loads,…and so when the user clicks to show…the Issues list view, that's the Load event.…But when they then browse from one record to the next,…that event doesn't happen again.…
So if you want something to occur…
