The OnAfterImport event handler cannot be created using Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 design mode; it must be created manually.

Creating the OnAfterImport event handler

To create the OnAfterImport event handler, you must add the OnAfterImport event handler declaration to the form's primary scripting file. Open Microsoft Script Editor (MSE) and enter the following event handler declaration:

JScript syntax

  function XDocument::OnAfterImport(eventObj)
   // Write your code here.

VBScript syntax

Visual Basic for Applications
  Sub XDocument_OnAfterImport(eventObj)
   ' Write your code here.
End Sub


In the following example, the OnAfterImport event handler is used to display a message box that informs the user that the merge operation completed successfully:

  function XDocument::OnAfterImport eventObj)
   XDocument.UI.Alert("Merge operation was successful.")
