IEventArgsHelper Interface
Defines the methods that must be implemented in the Event Arguments helper class of the custom server to serialize a class derived from System.EventArgs.
Object Model
IEventArgsHelper Interface
Public Interface IEventArgsHelper 
public interface IEventArgsHelper 
The following classes, derived from EventArgs, have serialization support. You do not need to serialize them:
  • MouseEventArgs
  • KeyPressEventArgs
  • KeyEventArgs

Implementing the IEventArgsHelper interface includes the following steps:

  1. Define the Event Arguments helper class or classes.
  2. Subscribe to events.
Details follow.

Define the Event Arguments helper class or classes

A helper class inherits from the IEventArgsHelper interface and implements its methods.

Note this class must have a default public constructor.

For example, this class serializes MouseEventArgs: [Serializable] public class MyMouseEventArgs : IEventArgsHelper { public MyMouseEventArgs() { } public void Init(EventArgs e) { MouseEventArgs args = (MouseEventArgs)e; Button = args.Button; Clicks = args.Clicks; Delta = args.Delta; X = args.X; Y = args.Y; } public EventArgs GetEventArgs() { MouseEventArgs args; args = new MouseEventArgs(Button, Clicks, Delta, X, Y); return(args); } private MouseButtons Button; private int Clicks; private int Delta; private int X; private int Y; }

Subscribe to events

In the event listening subscription process, use method CustomServerBase.AddHandler, where the third argument is your Event Arguments Helper class type. This tells UFT to serialize the Event Argument of the subscribed event using an instance of Event Arguments Helper class type.

For example, this is a subscription to the MouseUp event:

EventHandler e = new MouseEventHandler(this.OnMouseUp); AddHandler("MouseUp", e, typeof(MyMouseEventArgs));

Public Methods
MethodGetEventArgsRetrieves and deserializes the EventArgs object.  
MethodInitInitializes the Event Arguments helper class with an EventArgs object.
