Application Event Structures

Application events provide structures that correspond with navigation actions taken by a user on a device. In the WindowsSideShow.h header file, the Windows SideShow platform API defines specific structures for application events supported by the Simple Content Format endpoint.

When navigation occurs between pages specified by using the Simple Content Format, the Windows SideShow platform uses the ApplicationEvent method of the client-implemented ISideShowEvents interface to inform the Windows SideShow gadget that navigation from one page to another page has occurred. The Simple Content Format defines the following three types of application events, each of which passes a different set of parameters to the ApplicationEvent method.
