Details

EA_OnContextItemChanged notifies Add-Ins that a different item is now in context.

This event occurs after a user has selected an item anywhere in the Enterprise Architect GUI. Add-Ins that require knowledge of the current item in context can subscribe to this broadcast function. If ot = otRepository, then this function behaves the same as EA_FileOpen.
