events (COM)

List of events COM object can trigger

Syntax

S = events(h)

Description

S = events(h) returns structure array, S, containing all events, both registered and unregistered, known to the COM object, and the function prototype used when calling the event handler routine. For each array element, the structure field is the event name and the contents of that field is the function prototype for that event's handler.

COM functions are available on Microsoft® Windows® systems only.

Examples

List Control Events Example

Create an mwsamp control and list all events.

f = figure('position',[100 200 200 200]);
h = actxcontrol('mwsamp.mwsampctrl.2',[0 0 200 200],f);
events(h)
Click = void Click()
DblClick = void DblClick()
MouseDown = void MouseDown(int16 Button, int16 Shift,
  Variant x, Variant y)
Event_Args = void Event_Args(int16 typeshort, int32 typelong,
  double typedouble, string typestring, bool typebool)

Assign the output to a variable and get one field of the returned structure:

ev = events(h);
ev.MouseDown
ans =
  void MouseDown(int16 Button, int16 Shift, Variant x, Variant y)

List Workbook Events Example

Open a Microsoft Excel® application and list all events for a Workbook object.

myApp = actxserver('Excel.Application');
wbs = myApp.Workbooks;
wb = Add(wbs);
events(wb)

The MATLAB® software displays all events supported by the Workbook object.
