Property value

Type: System.String
A string for use by an event handler. This property setting does not affect Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 events.


The EventSinkData property only applies to a document library or to a list derived from a document library and contains the data that is specified in the user interface when the event handler is bound to the list. This property returns a NotSupportedException exception if the list is neither a document library nor a list derived from a document library.

For more information about this property and about document library events, seeWalkthrough: Handling Document Library Events.
