Event Handler (Delphi and Access VBA Cross Reference Guide)

By Mike Prestwood

Delphi versus Access VBA: A side by side comparison between Delphi and Access VBA.

 
Language Details
 

Language Details is kind of a catch all for stuff that didn't make it into language basics nor any other category.

Event Handler

[Other Languages] 

In computer programming, an event handler is part of event driven programming where the events are created by the framework based on interpreting inputs. Each event allows you to add code to an application-level event generated by the underlying framework, typically GUI triggers such as a key press, mouse movement, action selection, and an expired timer. In addition, events can represent data changes, new data, etc. Specifically, an event handler is an asynchronous callback subroutine that handles inputs received in a program.

A custom event is a programmer created event. For example, you can contrast an event handler with a member event, an OOP concept where you add an event to a class.

Languages Focus

Many development environments and compilers provide for event driven programming, a standard set of application events such as startup, end, on click of a button, etc. This section documents the applicaton event handler or an overview for each language.

For OOP languages, do not confuse this section with class member events discussed in the OOP Details section of our Cross Reference Coding Encyclopedia.

Delphi: 

Many objects in Delphi have events you can use to trigger code. For example, when you add a form to your project you have access to the form events such as onCreate, onShow, onHide, onDockDrop, etc. In addition, Delphi offers module level events initialization and finalization sections.
