The ActiveDesigner event occurs when the currently active document changes. The active document changes when a new document is created, an existing document is opened, or a document is closed.

When you create an ActiveDesignerEventArgs delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler 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: SharedState. 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 example method returns an ActiveDesignerEventArgs that contains a specified reference to the IDesignerHost for the designer losing focus and a specified reference to the IDesignerHost for the designer gaining focus.


        public ActiveDesignerEventArgs CreateActiveDesignerEventArgs(IDesignerHost losingFocus, IDesignerHost gainingFocus)
        {
            ActiveDesignerEventArgs e = new ActiveDesignerEventArgs(losingFocus, gainingFocus);
	        return e;
        }
