Name of the event.


true if the event was handled; otherwise, false.



This method is called by a control when it receives a postback event notification, to check whether the event is adapter-specific. If the control implements the IPostBackEventHandler method and receives a postback event, the RaisePostBackEvent method of the control adapter is called. If events sent to the control can vary depending on the target device, the control implementation of this method must call the HandlePostBackEvent method of the control adapter.

This method returns true or false, indicating whether the device adapter handled the event. It returns false by default.
