Microsoft Access WizHook References
A list of all the best resources for the hidden and undocumented Microsoft Access WizHook object.
The Microsoft Access WizHook object has been shrouded in mystery since its first known public appearance as part of Skrol's VTools add-in.
Until recently, the only decent documentation on the object came from non-English websites.
While modern auto-translation makes those resources more accessible to English-speaking developers than in years past, there's finally a good English-first resource for the WizHook object that I can recommend.
IslaDogs' WizHook Reference
Fellow Access MVP Colin Riddington (aka, IslaDogs) has a page dedicated to the WizHook object:
The page includes a downloadable Access database with usage samples and documentation for every WizHook method. As you can see in the screenshot below, the methods are color-coded to indicate which ones are:
- Fully Working (green)
- Partly Working (yellow)
- Not Working/Unknown (blue)
- No Longer Applicable (orange) - related to Data Access Pages
As I understand it, the sample database is a translation/expansion of the original database provided by Thomas Moeller, whose German-language by-method detailed documentation is widely considered the authoritative reference on the WizHook object.
