AppEvents_WorkbookBeforeXmlImportEventHandler Delegate 

A Delegate type used to add an event handler for the WorkbookBeforeXmlImport event. The WorkbookBeforeXmlImport event occurs before an existing XML data connection is refreshed, or new XML data is imported into any open Microsoft Excel workbook.

Namespace: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel
Assembly: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel (in

Sub Sub1(Wb As Workbook, _
	Map As XmlMap, _
	Url As String, _
	IsRefresh As Boolean, _
	Cancel As Boolean)
End Sub
Dim appEvents_WorkbookBeforeXmlImportEventHandler1 As New AppEvents_WorkbookBeforeXmlImportEventHandler(AddressOf Sub1)

public delegate void AppEvents_WorkbookBeforeXmlImportEventHandler(
	[In] Workbook Wb, 
	[In] XmlMap Map, 
	[In] string Url, 
	[In] bool IsRefresh, 
	[In, Out] ref bool Cancel
public delegate void AppEvents_WorkbookBeforeXmlImportEventHandler(
	/*in*/Workbook Wb, 
	/*in*/XmlMap Map, 
	/*in*/System.String Url, 
	/*in*/boolean IsRefresh, 
	/*in*/boolean Cancel
