EA_Connect events enable Add-Ins to identify their type and to respond to Enterprise Architect start up.

This event occurs when Enterprise Architect first loads your Add-In. Enterprise Architect itself is loading at this time so that while a Repository object is supplied, there is limited information that you can extract from it.

The chief uses for EA_Connect are in initializing global Add-In data and for identifying the Add-In as an MDG Add-In.
