expression .PersistsEvents

expression A variable that represents a Selection object.

Return Value


Every object that has an EventList property also has a PersistsEvents property. To be persistable, an event's action code must be visActCodeRunAddon, but it must also be in the EventList collection of an object whose PersistsEvents property is True. The only objects that currently persist events are Document, Master, and Page objects.

Whether a persistable event actually does persist depends on the value of its Persistent property.

This Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to use the PersistsEvents property to determine if an object is capable of containing persistent events. Executing the macro prints 1 (True), 1 (True), and 0 (False) in the Immediate window for the Document, Page, and Window objects, respectively.

Public Sub PersistsEvents_Example() 
 Dim vsoDocument As Visio.Document 
 Set vsoDocument = Documents.Add("") 
 Debug.Print vsoDocument.PersistsEvents 
 Debug.Print ActivePage.PersistsEvents 
 Debug.Print ActiveWindow.PersistsEvents 
End Sub
