XmlNodeChangedEventHandler Delegate

 
System_CAPS_noteNote

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Represents the method that handles NodeChanged, NodeChanging, NodeInserted, NodeInserting, NodeRemoved and NodeRemoving events.

Namespace:   System.Xml
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)

Public Delegate Sub XmlNodeChangedEventHandler (
	sender As Object,
	e As XmlNodeChangedEventArgs
)

Parameters

sender
Type: System.Object

The source of the event.

e
Type: System.Xml.XmlNodeChangedEventArgs

An XmlNodeChangedEventArgs containing the event data.

When you create an XmlNodeChangedEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that handles the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event handler delegates, see Handling and Raising Events.

The following example shows how to handle the NodeChanged and NodeInserted events.

    Public Class Sample

        Private Const filename As String = "book.xml"

        Public Shared Sub Main()

            Dim mySample As Sample = New Sample()
            mySample.Run(filename)
        End Sub

        Public Sub Run(ByVal args As String)

            ' Create and load the XML document.
            Console.WriteLine("Loading file {0} ...", args)
            Dim doc As XmlDocument = New XmlDocument()
            doc.Load(args)

            'Create the event handlers.
            AddHandler doc.NodeChanged, AddressOf MyNodeChangedEvent
            AddHandler doc.NodeInserted, AddressOf MyNodeInsertedEvent

            ' Change the book price.
            doc.DocumentElement.LastChild.InnerText = "5.95"

            ' Add a new element.
            Dim newElem As XmlElement = doc.CreateElement("style")
            newElem.InnerText = "hardcover"
            doc.DocumentElement.AppendChild(newElem)

            Console.WriteLine()
            Console.WriteLine("Display the modified XML...")
            Console.WriteLine(doc.OuterXml)

        End Sub

        ' Handle the NodeChanged event.
        Private Sub MyNodeChangedEvent(ByVal source As Object, ByVal args As XmlNodeChangedEventArgs)
            Console.Write("Node Changed Event: <{0}> changed", args.Node.Name)
            If Not (args.Node.Value Is Nothing) Then
                Console.WriteLine(" with value  {0}", args.Node.Value)
            Else
                Console.WriteLine("")
            End If
        End Sub

        ' Handle the NodeInserted event.
        Private Sub MyNodeInsertedEvent(ByVal source As Object, ByVal args As XmlNodeChangedEventArgs)
            Console.Write("Node Inserted Event: <{0}> inserted", args.Node.Name)
            If Not (args.Node.Value Is Nothing) Then
                Console.WriteLine(" with value {0}", args.Node.Value)
            Else
                Console.WriteLine("")
            End If
        End Sub

    End Class

End Namespace

The example uses the file book.xml as input.

<!--sample XML fragment-->
<book genre='novel' ISBN='1-861003-78' misc='sale-item'>
  <title>The Handmaid's Tale</title>
  <price>14.95</price>
</book>
