Ambient properties

I am checking a control with ambient.usermode, but I get an error of "client site not available". I would think a standard form supports this property. What could I be doing wrong?

This depends on which event you are trying to check the usermode.

When creating a new instance of a control, you cannot use the ambient properties until the ReadProperties Event, which comes after Initialize and InitProperties.  Try checking the usermode in the ReadProperties Event.

Thank you...this is correct, InitProperties only fires when you are creating an instance of a control (dropping on form, displaying a form in the design environment, etc.), but not when starting the container.  In actuality, if you want to perform a particular function at all times you would need to place this in both places or make a sub and call it from both places
