Loads an object but doesn't show it.


Load object

The object placeholder represents an object expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.


When an object is loaded, it is placed in memory, but isn't visible. Use the Show method to make the object visible. Until an object is visible, a user can't interact with it. The object can be manipulated programmatically in its Initialize event procedure.


In the following example, UserForm2 is loaded during UserForm1's Initialize event. Subsequent clicking on UserForm2 reveals UserForm1.

' This is the Initialize event procedure for UserForm1
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
    Load UserForm2
End Sub
' This is the Click event of UserForm2
Private Sub UserForm_Click()
End Sub
' This is the click event for UserForm1
Private Sub UserForm_Click()
End Sub
