ilogic form trigger

I have a ipt which is controlled via an ilogic form,this form is opened by ilogic code, which in turn is triggered when the ipt is opened.

my problem is when the part is placed within an assembly the said form is triggered and the same happens when the assembly is reopened!.... I would prefer if the form opened only when the ipt is opened or edited.... 

Is there a snippet of code for this? Or is it even possible?

Try the following code in the rule file that is being opened on open : 


Dim CurrentDoc as PartDocument = ThisDoc.Document  
If (Not (CurrentDoc Is ThisApplication.ActiveDocument)) Then Return

Hello, I came across this post and tried using the code in the solution. I still have problems at the assembly level, when I reopen the assembly all my forms will come up again. I have the event trigger set (in the iLogic part) to when the document opens the form will appear. but I would like to have it only appear once upon initial placement of the iLogic part.
