What are listeners?

The concept of listeners provides users with a mechanism to perform custom actions, in response to operations taken in a session. The listener implements an interface whose methods are called when a particular action is executed on an file.

The main object is FilesSessionListeners exposed by IFilesStore. It aggregates listeners of the following types:

  • file delete listeners (IFilesDeleteListener),
  • file metadata change listeners (IMetadataChangeListener),
  • file conflicts listeners (IFilesConflictListener).

You can register any number of listeners for a given type. You can either set the whole collection of listeners at once by calling:

store.SetListeners(new FilesSessionListeners
	DeleteListeners = new IFilesDeleteListener[] { /* ... */ },
	ConflictListeners = new IFilesConflictListener[] { /* ... */ },
	MetadataChangeListeners = new IMetadataChangeListener[] { /* ... */ }

or register a particular listener by the following method:

store.Listeners.RegisterListener(new SampleListener());
