Notification.BalloonChanged Event

Occurs when a message balloon is displayed or hidden.

Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsCE.Forms
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsCE.Forms (in microsoft.windowsce.forms.dll)

public event BalloonChangedEventHandler BalloonChanged
/** @event */
public void add_BalloonChanged (BalloonChangedEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_BalloonChanged (BalloonChangedEventHandler value)

JScript supports the use of events, but not the declaration of new ones.

This event occurs whenever you set the Visible property.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates using this event to determine whenever a notification is created. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the Notification class.

// You can use the BalloonChanged event
// created by tracking each time the notification is made visible.
private void OnBalloonChanged(object obj, BalloonChangedEventArgs balevent)
    if (balevent.Visible == true)
        // You can add code here to add 
        // functionality such as user interface 
        // changes that should occur when
        // the notification is displayed.
