HtmlElementEventArgs Class

Provides data for the events defined on HtmlDocument and HtmlElement.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

'Declaration
Public NotInheritable Class HtmlElementEventArgs _
	Inherits EventArgs
'Usage
Dim instance As HtmlElementEventArgs

HtmlElementEventArgs encapsulates the same information found on the window.event object when programming against the unmanaged HTML DOM or when writing Active Script for HTML pages.

In most cases, you can use ToElement to find the HTML element that is receiving the event action, and FromElement to find the HTML element that the current event is causing us to leave. However, not every event supplies a value for these properties; see the managed documentation for an event, or the corresponding documentation in the Internet Explorer SDK documentation, to discover if the event supplies it.

Many events in the HTML DOM are sent to their parent elements unless they are cancelled. This is known as event bubbling. If a SPAN inside of a DIV receives a click, then a click event is raised for the SPAN first, then for the DIV, and finally for the HTML page's BODY element. BubbleEvent controls whether an event will behave in this manner or not.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this type. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the Click event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type HtmlDocument named HtmlDocument1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the Click event.

Private Sub HtmlDocument1_Click(sender as Object, e as HtmlElementEventArgs) _ 
     Handles HtmlDocument1.Click

    Dim messageBoxVB as New System.Text.StringBuilder()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "MouseButtonsPressed", e.MouseButtonsPressed)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ClientMousePosition", e.ClientMousePosition)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "OffsetMousePosition", e.OffsetMousePosition)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "MousePosition", e.MousePosition)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "BubbleEvent", e.BubbleEvent)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "KeyPressedCode", e.KeyPressedCode)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "AltKeyPressed", e.AltKeyPressed)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "CtrlKeyPressed", e.CtrlKeyPressed)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ShiftKeyPressed", e.ShiftKeyPressed)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "EventType", e.EventType)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ReturnValue", e.ReturnValue)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "FromElement", e.FromElement)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ToElement", e.ToElement)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    MessageBox.Show(messageBoxVB.ToString(),"Click Event")
