public static event DocumentAutoSavingEventHandler AutoSaving

Event Data

The AutoSaving event's data class is DocumentSavingEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
DocumentID Gets the document’s unique identifier.
Handled Gets or sets whether the event is handled manually, so no default processing is required.
MultiUserConflict Identifies the multi-user conflict reason.
MultiUserConflictResolve Gets or sets how to resolve an open document’s multi-user conflict.


The AutoSaving event allows you to handle auto save operations and resolve multi-user conflicts, if any.

Handle the AutoSaving event to process custom save operations triggered by the autosave timer (AutoSaveTimeout/AutoSaveTimeout).

A custom implementation is required when a control does not have enough information to complete the document save operation automatically. Such situations occur when the control is about to save a new document or a document opened from a custom document storage.
