Cancel change active document

Hi

How can I stop changing active document?

 

I was thinking I could use this, but I don't know how to cancel it in the event handler:

 

AcadApp.DocumentManager.DocumentToBeActivated += new DocumentCollectionEventHandler(DocumentManager_DocumentToBeActivated);

static void DocumentManager_DocumentToBeActivated(object sender, DocumentCollectionEventArgs e)
{
    // Messagebox to ask if user are sure
    bool AreYouSureYouWantToChangeActiveFile = MessageBox....

    if(!AreYouSureYouWantToChangeActiveFile)
        //cancel change active file somehow...???
}

 

1. You can disable switching of Document's at all if you call:

AcadApp.DocumentManager.DocumentActivationEnabled = false;

 but not in handler of event of DocumentToBeActivated.

2. If you have to prevent switching in a handler of event of DocumentToBeActivated you have to:

a) save previous Document and set flag of switching in this handler.

b) in command reactor switch Document back to previous Document and clear flag of switching.

Hi

I could not get it to work. When I set the property you mentioned the active document has already changed. And if I set the property to false at a earlier stage I will never come to the listener. Any ideas?

static void DocumentManager_DocumentToBeActivated(object sender, DocumentCollectionEventArgs e)
{
            DialogResult dialogResult = MessageBox.Show("You are changing the active drawing. Continue?", "Active drawing change", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo);
            if (dialogResult == DialogResult.Yes)
            {
                AcadApp.DocumentManager.DocumentActivationEnabled = true;
                RemoveDocumentToBeActivatedListener();
            }
            else if (dialogResult == DialogResult.No)
            {
                AcadApp.DocumentManager.DocumentActivationEnabled = false;
            }
}

Perhaps you can explain why you want to prevent a document from being activated?

I have created an application that scans and does something with the active document and I haven't implemented support for what happens when active document is changed. So for my demo version I thought I could just prevent the user from changing the document.

While command with CommandFlags.Modal is active user can not switch active document. More precisely when switching to another document, the command will paused and wait for switch back.
