Application.QueryCancelSuspendEvents event (Visio)

Occurs before the application suspends events in response to client code. If any event handler returns True, the operation is canceled.


expression.QueryCancelSuspendEvents (app)

expression An expression that returns an Application object.


Name Required/Optional Data type Description
app Required [IVAPPLICATION] The instance of Microsoft Visio in which firing of events is going to be suspended.

Return value



A Visio instance fires QueryCancelSuspendEvents after client code has directed the instance to suspend events.

  • If any event handler returns True (cancel), the instance fires SuspendEventsCanceled and does not suspend events.

  • If all handlers return False (don't cancel), the suspension occurs.

While a Visio instance is firing a query or cancel event, it responds to inquiries from client code but refuses to perform operations. Client code can show forms or message boxes while responding to a query or cancel event.

If you are using Microsoft Visual Basic or Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), the syntax in this topic describes a common, efficient way to handle events.

If you want to create your own Event objects, use the Add or AddAdvise method.

To create an Event object that runs an add-on, use the Add method as it applies to the EventList collection.

To create an Event object that receives notification, use the AddAdvise method.

To find an event code for the event that you want to create, see Event codes.
