Office.EventType.BindingDataChanged

To add an event handler for the BindingDataChanged event of a binding, use the addHandlerAsync method of the Binding object. The event handler receives an argument of type BindingDataChangedEventArgs.

function addEventHandlerToBinding() {
    Office.select("bindings#MyBinding").addHandlerAsync(Office.EventType.BindingDataChanged, onBindingDataChanged);
}

function onBindingDataChanged(eventArgs) {
    write("Data has changed in binding: " + eventArgs.binding.id);
}

// Function that writes to a div with id='message' on the page.
function write(message){
    document.getElementById('message').innerText += message; 
}

A checkmark (√) in the following matrix indicates that this method is supported in the corresponding Office host application. An empty cell indicates that the Office host application doesn't support this method.
