Event.Event Property (Visio)

Gets or sets the event code of an Event object—an event-action pair. When the event occurs, the action is performed. Read/write.

Syntax

expression. Event

expression A variable that represents a Event object.

Return Value

Integer

Remarks

If the action code of the Event object is visActCodeRunAddon , the event also specifies the target of the action and the arguments to send to the target. This information is stored in the Target and TargetArgs properties, respectively.

If the action code of the Event object is visActCodeAdvise , the event also specifies the object to receive event notifications (sometimes called the sink object) and arguments to send to the sink object along with the notification.

Event codes are declared by the Microsoft Visio type library in VisEventCodes . They are prefixed with " visEvt ". For a list of event codes, seeEvent Codes.

A program can use the Trigger method to cause an Event object's action to be performed without waiting for the event to occur.
