onSearchCmd
The method that overrides the Servoy menu item Select > Search (or keyboard shortcut) in Find mode.
This property is automatically set to "DEFAULT" (no override) when the form is created.
Returns
JSMethod
Sample
form.onFindCmd = form.newFormMethod('function onFindCmd(event) { application.output("onFindCmd intercepted on " + event.getFormName()); }');
form.onSearchCmd = form.newFormMethod('function onSearchCmd(event) { application.output("onSearchCmd intercepted on " + event.getFormName()); }');

onShow

The method that is triggered EVERY TIME the form is displayed; an argument must be passed to the method if this is the first time the form is displayed.

NOTE: onShow can be used to access current foundset dataproviders; onLoad cannot be used because the foundset data is not loaded until after the form is loaded.

NOTE: the onShow event bubbles down, meaning that the onShow event of a form displayed in a tabPanel is fired after the onShow event of the parent.

Returns
JSMethod
Sample
form.onShow = form.newFormMethod('function onShow(firstShow, event) { application.output("onShow intercepted on " + event.getFormName() + ". first show? " + firstShow); return false; }');

onUnLoad
The method that is triggered when a form is unloaded from the repository.
NOTE: Forms can be prevented from being removed from memory by referencing the form object in a global variable or inside an array inside a global variable. Do take care using this technique.
Forms take up memory and if too many forms are in memory and cannot be unloaded, there is a possibility of running out of memory.

JSMethod
Sample
