People: Jason Cater,�James Thompson,�ra3vat,�Dmitry Sorokin

Dmitry Sorokin (ra3vat) asked Jason Cater (jcater) how on-activation trigger differs from on-startup. Jason offered asking James Thompson (jamest) for specifications. He thought that on-startup runned when form was loaded; and "on-activation is fired once each time a form (dialog) is called" , on activation runs each time a form is displayed - it is convenient "to clear the fields from the last time it was called" .
