Visual Basic Reference
Occurs when a command string is sent by a destination application in a DDE conversation. The destination application expects the source application to perform the operation described by the string.
Private Sub object_LinkExecute(cmdstr As String, cancel As Integer)
The LinkExecute event syntax has these parts:
|object||An object expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.|
|cmdstr||The command string expression sent by the destination application.|
|cancel||An integer that tells the destination whether the command string was accepted or refused. Setting cancel to 0 informs the destination that the command string was accepted. Setting cancel to any nonzero value informs the destination that the command string was rejected. (The default is set to -1, indicating cancel.)|
There is no required syntax for cmdstr. How your application responds to different strings is completely up to you.
If you haven't created a LinkExecute event procedure, Visual Basic rejects command strings from destination applications.
