WinEventProc Callback Function

The WinEventProc function is an application-defined callback (or hook) function that the system calls in response to events generated by an accessible object. The hook function processes the event notifications as required. Clients install the hook function and request specific types of event notifications by calling SetWinEventHook.

The WINEVENTPROC type defines a pointer to this callback function. WinEventProc is a placeholder for the application-defined function name.

VOID CALLBACK WinEventProc(
  HWINEVENTHOOK hWinEventHook,
  DWORD event,
  HWND hwnd,
  LONG idObject,
  LONG idChild,
  DWORD dwEventThread,
  DWORD dwmsEventTime
);

Parameters

hWinEventHook
Handle to an event hook function. This value is returned by SetWinEventHook when the hook function is installed and is specific to each instance of the hook function.
event
Specifies the event that occurred. This value is one of the event constants.
hwnd
Handle to the window that generates the event, or NULL if no window is associated with the event. For example, the mouse pointer is not associated with a window.
idObject
Identifies the object associated with the event. This is one of the object identifiers or a custom object ID.
idChild
Identifies whether the event was triggered by an object or a child element of the object. If this value is CHILDID_SELF, the event was triggered by the object; otherwise, this value is the child ID of the element that triggered the event.
dwEventThread
Identifies the thread that generated the event, or the thread that owns the current window.
dwmsEventTime
Specifies the time, in milliseconds, that the event was generated.

Remarks

Within the hook function, the parameters hwnd, idObject, and idChild are used when calling AccessibleObjectFromEvent.

Servers generate events by calling NotifyWinEvent.

Create multiple callback functions to handle different events. For more information, see Registering a Hook Function.

Example

For an example implementation, see SetWinEventHook.
