Server.Events Property

Gets the server events associated with the instance of Microsoft SQL Server.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in microsoft.sqlserver.smo.dll)
public ServerEvents Events { get; }
/** @property */
public ServerEvents get_Events ()

public function get Events () : ServerEvents

Property Value

A ServerEvents object that represents the server events.

Updated text:

The Events property points to a ServerEvents object that controls the subscription to server events for the application to handle. Use the ServerEventSet object to create a variable that contains a specified set of server events, such as the CreateDatabase event. The server can then subscribe to the events by calling one of the SubscribeToEvents overloads. The StartEvents method then starts the server that is receiving events.

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework.
