Commandset

This element is not displayed and serves as a container for command elements.

In addition, this element can serve as a command updater, which is used to update the enabled state of one or more commands when certain events occur. A common use of the command updater is to update the cut, copy, and paste menu items as the user selects text.

commandupdater

Type: boolean

If true, the commandset is used for updating commands. Typically, this is used to update menu commands such as Undo and Cut based on when an event occurs. For example, since the Cut command is only valid when something is selected, a command updater might be used when the select event occurs.

events

Type: comma separated list

A comma separated list of event names that the command updater will update upon. If this attribute is not specified, or you set it to the value '*', all events are valid. Valid events are listed below, or you can use your own events. You can send a custom event by calling the UpdateCommands method of the command dispatcher.

oncommandupdate

Type: script code

targets

Type: comma separated list of element ids

A comma separated list of element ids that the command updater will update upon. If this attribute is not specified, or you set it to the value '*', all elements are valid. The command update will only occur when the event occurs to one of the specified elements.
