If the same event property has been selected for the form and object in the form, the object method always gets executed before the form method. When a form event occurs, 4th Dimension first browses the objects of the form and calls the object method for any object (involved in the event) whose corresponding object event property has been selected. And then the form method of the corresponding form event is executed.
