Raises the BeforeUninstall event.
[Visual Basic] Protected Overridable Sub OnBeforeUninstall( _ ByVal savedState As IDictionary _ ) [C#] protected virtual void OnBeforeUninstall( IDictionary savedState ); [C++] protected: virtual void OnBeforeUninstall( IDictionary* savedState ); [JScript] protected function OnBeforeUninstall( savedState : IDictionary );
- An IDictionary that contains the state of the computer before the installers in the Installers property uninstall their installations.
Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.
The OnBeforeUninstall method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.
Notes to Inheritors: When overriding OnBeforeUninstall in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnBeforeUninstall method so that registered delegates receive the event.
