Do you remember the user's last settings?
  v2.0 Posted at 1/12/2014 4:03 PM by Rebecca Liu

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.
    SSW Time PRO .NET - Login
    Figure: Bad Example - Last Username is not saved
    SSW Time PRO .NET - Login
    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.
