Events are the fragements of ASP code executed before or after record was added, edited, deleted, when new user registers etc. Therefore events allow you to define some actions that will be activated when certain conditions are met.


Here are a few examples of some common events:

send an email which contains the data from a new record, or shows changes to an existing record;


save data in another table;


check record uniqueness;


show related to current record info.


Events can be divided into global and table events. Global events are not specific to any table or view. Table events belong to a table or a view.

1. Go to the Events page.

2. Select an event from the tree in the left pane. To show events with the actual code only, click the show_actual_code_bt button. To filter events by the event name, use text field under the events tree.


After you selected the event, on the right pane you will see definition of the function that implements selected event and description of the function parameters. To hide the parameters description click hide_bt button.
