I have an Form Activated event, but no Activate event

Does anyone know why?

I'm using VS.NET 2003

Is there another event that fires before the Form_Load event?

    Accepted Solution


    for this purpose I create a function preload and I call it before I call the show method of the form.

    Dim form1 as YourForm

    The preshow is something like public function/sub PreShow.

    Yes...the constructor is called when you instantiate the form with the "new" keyword.

    If that is not what you are after then please give us more details...
