Visual Basic Reference
Occurs when an application creates an instance of a Form, MDIForm, User control, Property Page, Webclass, DHTML Page Designer, or class.
Private Sub object_Initialize( )
The object placeholder represents an object expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.
You trigger the Initialize event when you:
- Use the CreateObject function to create an instance of a class. For example:
Set X = CreateObject("Project1.MyClass")
- Refer to a property or event of an automatically created instance of a form or class in your code. For example:
MyForm.Caption = "Example"
Use this event to initialize any data used by the instance of the Form, MDIForm, or class. For a Form or MDIForm, the Initialize event occurs before the Load event.
