Event Data

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

Property Description
Cancel Gets or sets a value indicating whether the event should be canceled. Inherited from CancelEventArgs.
ShapeId Gets the ID value of the drawing object being removed.
ShapeType Gets the type of the drawing object being removed.


The ShapeRemoving event allows you to perform any actions before a drawing object is removed from the worksheet. To obtain the type of the drawing object for which the event has been raised, use the event parameter’s ShapeType property. You can prevent a drawing object from being removed by setting the Cancel property to true.

After a drawing object has been removed, the Workbook.ShapeRemoved event is raised.


By default, the ShapeRemoving event does not occur. To trigger it, set the WorkbookEventOptions.RaiseOnModificationsViaAPI property (accessible via the Workbook.Options.Events.RaiseOnModificationsViaAPI notation) to true.
