UserPreferenceChangingEventHandler Delegate

Represents the method that will handle the UserPreferenceChanging event.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Win32
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

'Declaration
<HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, MayLeakOnAbort := True)> _
Public Delegate Sub UserPreferenceChangingEventHandler ( _
	sender As Object, _
	e As UserPreferenceChangingEventArgs _
)

Parameters

sender
Type: System.Object
The source of the event. When this event is raised by the SystemEvents class, this object is always Nothing.
e
Type: Microsoft.Win32.UserPreferenceChangingEventArgs
A UserPreferenceChangedEventArgs that contains the event data.

When you create a UserPreferenceChangingEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event-handling method, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event-handling method is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event-handler delegates, see Events and Delegates.

NoteNote

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: MayLeakOnAbort. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the UserPreferenceChangingEventHandler type to monitor the UserPreferenceChanging event. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the SystemEvents class.
