OptionGroup.OnEnter property (Access)

OptionGroup.OnEnter property (Access)

Sets or returns the value of the On Enter box in the Properties window of specified object. Read/write String.



expression A variable that represents an OptionGroup object.


This property is helpful for programmatically changing the action that Microsoft Access takes when an event is triggered. For example, between event calls you may want to change an expression's parameters, or switch from an event procedure to an expression or macro, depending on the circumstances under which the event was triggered.

The Enter event occurs before a control actually receives the focus from a control on the same form.

The OnEnter value will be one of the following, depending on the selection chosen in the Choose Builder window (accessed by choosing the Build button next to the On Enter box in the object's Properties window):

  • If you choose Expression Builder, the value will be =expression, where expression is the expression from the Expression Builder window.

  • If you choose Macro Builder, the value is the name of the macro.

  • If you choose Code Builder, the value will be [Event Procedure].

If the On Enter box is blank, the property value is an empty string.


The following example associates the Enter event with the macro Enter_Macro for the button named OK on the Order Entry form.

Forms("Order Entry").Controls("OK").OnEnter = "Enter_Macro"
