invoking user object events that was added at runtime

invoking user object events that was added at runtime


I have a main window object (win_a) with a tab control in it. On runtime, this tab control will have a tabpage (a userobject). I would like to access the user object's event. I am not sure if this will ever work so I did some testing.

On the response window close event, I added:
message.stringparm = 'E'

On the Activate event of win_a, I added:
if message.stringparm='E' then
//code here
end if

I would like to add a code in the Activate event to invoke the user object's event. is that even possible?

thanks in advance,


RE: invoking user object events that was added at runtime

I was able to figure it out.

I just did a dot notation of the ancestor's user object.

uo_parent luo_object
long ll_tabix

if message.stringparm='E' then

end if
