Application.EventsEnabled Property (Visio)

Determines whether a Microsoft Visio instance fires events. Read/write.


expression. EventsEnabled

expression A variable that represents an Application object.

Return Value



If the EventsEnabled property is False , Visio does not fire events, run add-ons, or execute strings that contain arbitrary Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code when evaluating RUNADDON operands in cell formulas.

By default, the EventsEnabled property is True when an instance of Visio starts.

You may want to disable event firing if you have written code to handle events such as DocumentOpened or DocumentCreated that does not work properly, or to prevent the incorporation of a virus into a document. Events will not fire until the EventsEnabled property is set to True .


These VBA macros show how to use the EventsEnabled property to suspend and resume event processing.

Public Sub SuspendEventProcessing_Example() 
 'Suspend event processing. 
 Application.EventsEnabled = False 
 End Sub 
Public Sub EventsEnabled_Example() 
 'Resume event processing. 
 Application.EventsEnabled = True 
End Sub
