Hi exfperts,

I'm an ms-access developer but new in vb.net, read some books and trying several things in vb.net.
What i can't find in .net is the way how an event is triggered when activating, opening or loading a form in vb.net.
In access there is an event OnActivate, OnOpen, Onload ... but for some reason I can' t find  anything like that in tutorials for vb.net

In code view in Visual Studio there are 2 dropdowns at the top of the screen (below the menu, icons and files tabs).  In the left hand dropdown under the name of the form (say Form1) there are 2 items in brackets.  One of them will be (Form1 Events).  If you select that then the right hand dropdown will contain all of the events available to you.  Included in this are the Activated and Load events.
