NamedRange.Change Event


Occurs when something changes in the NamedRange control.

Namespace:   Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.dll)

event DocEvents_ChangeEventHandler Change

This event is raised if the NamedRange control is changed by either a programmatic modification or user interaction. This event does not occur when cells in a NamedRange control change during a recalculation.

The following code example creates a NamedRange and a Change event handler. To raise the Change event, add text to one of the cells in the NamedRange and then press ENTER.

This version is for a document-level customization.

Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.NamedRange changesRange;
private void NotifyChanges()
    changesRange = this.Controls.AddNamedRange(
        this.Range["B2", "E5"], "compositeRange");
    changesRange.Change += new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.

void changesRange_Change(Excel.Range Target)
    string cellAddress = Target.get_Address(
    MessageBox.Show("Cell " + cellAddress + " changed.");

This version is for an application-level add-in.
