EA_OnPreNewPackage notifies Add-Ins that a new Package is about to be created in the model. It enables Add-Ins to permit or deny creation of the new Package.

This event occurs when a user drags a new Package from the Toolbox or 'Resources' tab of the Browser window onto a diagram, or by selecting the New Package icon from the Browser window. The notification is provided immediately before the Package is created, so that the Add-In can disable addition of the Package.


Function EA_OnPreNewPackage (Repository As EA.Repository, Info As EA.EventProperties) As Boolean

The EA_OnPreNewPackage function syntax contains these parameters.
