GetEventTarget method

Called by MSHTML after a successful hit-test on a rendering behavior to transfer event handling to another element.

Syntax


HRESULT retVal = object.GetEventTarget(ppElement);

Parameters

ppElement [out]

Type: IHTMLElement

Pointer to an IHTMLElement interface for the element to which to transfer the event.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

Remarks

This method is called only if IHTMLPainterEventInfo::GetEventInfoFlags passes MSHTML the HTMLPAINT_EVENT_TARGET flag.

When a hit-test on a rendering behavior is successful, the behavior can transfer the event to another element to use that element's event handlers. For example, an editing application might redirect all mouse events from selected elements to some central element in the framework, so it can drag all the selected elements together. The IHTMLEventObj::srcElement property in the event object for the event will remain the element to which the behavior is attached.
