Notification.ResponseSubmitted Event

Occurs when the user clicks a button or link in the message balloon.

Namespace:  Microsoft.WindowsCE.Forms
Assembly:  Microsoft.WindowsCE.Forms (in Microsoft.WindowsCE.Forms.dll)

public event ResponseSubmittedEventHandler ResponseSubmitted

This event occurs when the message balloon is dismissed by user input, but not when the InitialDuration time elapses.

This event is not raised if the Response property contains the name of a button or element in the format of "cmd:n", where n is any integer. These are special identifiers on the Pocket PC.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code demonstrates using this event to process user interaction with the message balloon. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the Notification class.

// When a ResponseSubmitted event occurs, this event handler 
// parses the response to determine values in the HTML form. 
private void OnResponseSubmitted(object obj, ResponseSubmittedEventArgs resevent)

    // Use a StringBuilder to create a log of the response.
    StringBuilder LogResponse = new StringBuilder();

    // If the response contains the name specified for the action value 
    // of the HTML form, in this case "notify," get the value of the
    // selected option from the SELECT list. An example of the 
    // response string would be notify?lstbx=0. 

    if (resevent.Response.Substring(0, 6) == "notify")
        int choice = Convert.ToInt32(resevent.Response.Substring(13, 1));
        switch (choice)
            case 0:
            case 1:
                LogResponse.Append("opt 1");
            case 2:
                LogResponse.Append("opt 2");
            case 3:
                LogResponse.Append("opt 3");
            case 4:
                LogResponse.Append("opt 4");
        // If the checkbox in the form is checked, the response 
        // string could be as follows: notify?lstbx=0chkbx=on 
        // You can determine whether the check box is selected 
        // by checking whether the response ends with "on".
        if (resevent.Response.EndsWith("on"))

    // If the user clicked the settings link, 
    // log the response. This example could display 
    // a dialog box by activating another form. 
    else if (resevent.Response == "settings")
        // Display a settings dialog by activating 
        // a form named 'Settings': 
        // Settings.Activate
        LogResponse.Append("Postponed by clicking link");

        // The user needs to respond to the notification 
        // after checking the settings, so set the 
        // InitialDuration and Visible properties so 
        // that the icon appears in the title bar.
        notification1.InitialDuration = 0;
        notification1.Visible = true;

    // Display the response on the status bar.
    statusBar1.Text = LogResponse.ToString() + " HTML: " + resevent.Response.ToString();
