DataChangeNotification Event (IEasyUAClient)
Example 



OpcLabs.EasyOpcUA Assembly > OpcLabs.EasyOpc.UA Namespace > IEasyUAClient Interface : DataChangeNotification Event
Raised for every significant change in a subscribed OPC monitored item.
Syntax
'Declaration
 
Event DataChangeNotification As EasyUADataChangeNotificationEventHandler
'Usage
 
Dim instance As IEasyUAClient
Dim handler As EasyUADataChangeNotificationEventHandler
 
AddHandler instance.DataChangeNotification, handler
event EasyUADataChangeNotificationEventHandler DataChangeNotification
event EasyUADataChangeNotificationEventHandler^ DataChangeNotification
Event Data

The event handler receives an argument of type EasyUADataChangeNotificationEventArgs containing data related to this event. The following EasyUADataChangeNotificationEventArgs properties provide information specific to this event.

PropertyDescription
Holds arguments that were used to subscribe to a monitored item in an OPC-UA server.  
Attribute data: the value of an attribute, together with status code and timestamps.  
Diagnostics information (such as warnings) assembled during the operation. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
Count of diagnostic information elements assembled during the operation. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
Textual summary of diagnostics information, one message per line. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
Gets or sets the error ID of the error. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
Gets or sets a message that describes the current exception. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
The first line of the error message. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
Gets the current exception. Contains null reference when no exception. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
A normalized OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs.Diagnostics collection. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
A normalized OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs.Exception object, or null if there was no error. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
Status information corresponding to the contents of the event arguments.  
Gets indication whether the operation has succeeded. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
