Examples

// In this example, consider a button defined in an add-in manifest as follows:
//<Control xsi:type="Button" id="eventTestButton">
//    <Label resid="eventButtonLabel" />
//    <Tooltip resid="eventButtonTooltip" />
//    <Supertip>
//        <Title resid="eventSuperTipTitle" />
//        <Description resid="eventSuperTipDescription" />
//    </Supertip>
//    <Icon>
//        <bt:Image size="16" resid="blue-icon-16" />
//        <bt:Image size="32" resid="blue-icon-32" />
//        <bt:Image size="80" resid="blue-icon-80" />
//    </Icon>
//    <Action xsi:type="ExecuteFunction">
//        <FunctionName>testEventObject</FunctionName>
//    </Action>
//</Control>

// The button has an id attribute set to eventTestButton, and will invoke
// the testEventObject function defined in the add-in.
// That function looks like this:
function testEventObject(event) {
    // The event object implements the Event interface.

    // This value will be "eventTestButton".
    const buttonId = event.source.id;

    // Signal to the host app that processing is complete.
    event.completed();
}
// Function is used by two buttons:
// button1 and button2
function multiButton (event) {
    // Check which button was clicked.
    const buttonId = event.source.id;

    if (buttonId === 'button1') {
        doButton1Action();
    } else {
        doButton2Action();
    }

    event.completed();
}
