Understanding Objects, Properties, Events, and Methods

Many people, especially those used to a procedural language, don't understand the concept of objects, properties, and events. You need a thorough knowledge of Access's objects, their properties, and the events each object can respond to if you want to be a productive and successful Access programmer.

What Exactly Are Objects?

As mentioned earlier in this chapter, objects are all the things that make up your database. They include tables, queries, forms, reports, macros, and modules, as well as the components of those objects. For example, a Table object contains Field and Index objects. A Form contains various controls (text boxes, combo boxes, list boxes, and so on). Each object in the database has specific properties that determine its appearance or behavior. Each object also has specific methods, which are actions that can be taken on it.
