Property value

Type: Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.View
A View object that represents the current view.

Use the View object returned by the CurrentView property to work with the properties and methods of the View object as they apply to the current view.

Important noteImportant

When a form is open in InfoPath, the CurrentView property returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if it is used to access a ViewInfo object from an event handler for the Validating event.

This member can be accessed only by forms running in the same domain as the currently open form, or by forms that have been granted cross-domain permissions.

This type or member can be accessed from code running in forms opened in Microsoft InfoPath Filler or in a Web browser.

The following code example shows how to use the ViewInfo and Window properties of the View object returned by the CurrentView property to display the name of the current view and the caption of the current window.

MessageBox.Show(Me.CurrentView.ViewInfo.Name)
MessageBox.Show(Me.CurrentView.Window.Caption)
Show:
