hi ppingshi

try the  onDeactivate-event of the form...

Private Sub Form_Deactivate()
    MsgBox Me.Name & " wordt gedeactiveerd"
End Sub

btw, a form can only receive focus when there are no controls (objects) on the form, or when all visible controls on it are disabled.
Thus, if u click a button to go to another form, the actual form will not lose focus, since it did not have the focus. (So no LostFocus event is triggered)

hope this clears things up,

cheers

The pop-up type of form doesn't work properly on the events, perhaps that's the case with your form?
