VEMap Events

You are not viewing the latest version of the AJAX control. Bing Maps AJAX V7 is the recommended JavaScript control for Bing Maps. If you need this documentation, it is available in as a CHM or PDF download.

The events of the VEMap Class are listed here, divided into events specific to Bing Maps, mouse events, and keyboard events. For a complete list of VEMap class members, see the VEMap Class topic.

Public Events


An event handler can disable the default Bing Maps action associated with that event by returning true. If the event handler does not return a value or returns false, the default action occurs after any actions defined in the event handler.

Note   Use only the function name to attach a handler to an event. If an entire function is attached as the handler to an event, it cannot be detached.

An event object is passed to the event handler when the event is fired. Depending on the event, a subset of the values in the VEMap Event Object Properties table are accessible from the event object. For a list of the properties that are available for a particular event, see the reference topic for that event.

Event handlers can perform actions based on the type of element (normally a VEShape Class object) by using the elementID property of the event object in conjunction with the VEMap.GetShapeByID Method method. See the example code in the VEMap Event Object Properties topic for further information.
