How to get OnNavigate event in OneNote 2010 addin RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm developing a OneNote 2010 addin. I follow Malte's tutorial and build my first project successfully, but get stuck when trying to make it a little more complex.

    I want a function to be called when OneNote UI is navigated away from current page. My code is:


    public void OnConnection(object Application, ext_ConnectMode ConnectMode, object AddInInst, ref Array custom)
                onApp = (OneNote.ApplicationClass)Application;
    onApp.OnNavigate += new Microsoft.Office.Interop.OneNote.IOneNoteEvents_OnNavigateEventHandler(OnNavigate);
                catch (Exception ex)

    public void OnNavigate()

    I get the exception message: "Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.", and function OnNavigate() doesn't work.

    Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Or, is there other ways to get the navigate event?

    Thank you.

  • Hi Ross,

    The OneNote object model doesn't support event in *managed* code, you may have to register the event in C++.

  • HI,

    Has Anybody tried with registering events in one note addin developed in c++.

    I have tried registering events in Office 2016 in c#,it works but I get delayed response for the actions performed.

    As mentioned in the documentation i.e. events are not supported in managed code so can I get the sample to

    register events in cpp.

    Any help will be appreciated.
