Do you remember the user's last settings?

Last updated by RebeccaLiu over 9 years ago.See history

The user's last settings should be saved and should be selected as the Default the next time a form is opened in many instances. For example:

  • Login forms - the last login name should be the Default selected and the cursor should be in the password box.

Figure: Bad Example - Last Username is not saved

Figure: Good Example - Last Username is saved

  • Report criteria forms - e.g. date start and date end fields should be automatically populated

How do I store the settings?

  • .NET: Use the Configuration Block to store the settings.
  • Access: Use a local table called 'Control' with one record.
