To add an event handler for the BindingSelectionChanged event of a binding, use the addHandlerAsync method of the Binding object. The event handler receives an argument of type BindingSelectionChangedEventArgs.

In version 1.1 of Office.js, you can now add and remove event handlers for the SelectionChanged event in content apps for Access.

function addEventHandlerToBinding() {"bindings#MyBinding").addHandlerAsync(Office.EventType.BindingSelectionChanged, onBindingSelectionChanged);

function onBindingSelectionChanged(eventArgs) {
    write( + " has been selected.");
// Function that writes to a div with id='message' on the page.
function write(message){
    document.getElementById('message').innerText += message;
