object.FireEvent Object, EventName


Object Required. An Object.
The object on which you want to simulate the event.  This object is an object that was previously returned by performing an operation (usually via the Object property) on an ActiveX test object.
EventName Required. A String value.
The name of the event to simulate. The list of possible events depends on the object specified for the Object argument.
Required. None
Zero or more arguments of the event. The list of arguments depends on the EventName. Enter the values in a comma separated list. If no event arguments are required, you do not need to supply a value for the Args argument.

Return Type



The event is sent to the container of the ActiveX object and does not affect the ActiveX object itself. For example, simulating a click event does not actually perform the click.
