WorkbookEvents_BeforeXmlImportEventHandler Delegate 

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

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

Sub Sub1(Map As XmlMap, _
	Url As String, _
	IsRefresh As Boolean, _
	Cancel As Boolean)
End Sub
Dim workbookEvents_BeforeXmlImportEventHandler1 As New WorkbookEvents_BeforeXmlImportEventHandler(AddressOf Sub1)

public delegate void WorkbookEvents_BeforeXmlImportEventHandler(
	[In] XmlMap Map, 
	[In] string Url, 
	[In] bool IsRefresh, 
	[In, Out] ref bool Cancel
public delegate void WorkbookEvents_BeforeXmlImportEventHandler(
	/*in*/XmlMap Map, 
	/*in*/System.String Url, 
	/*in*/boolean IsRefresh, 
	/*in*/boolean Cancel
In JScript, you can use the delegates in the .NET Framework, but you cannot define your own.
