With raised events under your belt, you can now use masters even when the interactions on each instance are different.

This tutorial shows us how to use the same master and raised events to open different Previous/Next links from each page.

 

Go to Previous/Next Link Master Tutorial

Any interaction within a master can raise an event. In the Case Editor dialog, choose the “Raise Event” action. In the far right column in the case editor, you can add and manage raised events and select the event(s) to raise in the interaction. It helps to give the raised event a descriptive name, like OnHelpButtonClick.

 

Raised events can also be managed in the Manage Raised Events dialog at Arrange > Manage Raised Events in the main menu.

When you add the master to a page, select the master and you’ll see the raised events in the Interactions pane. You can add interactions to that event the same way you would any other event.

Raised events are custom events created on masters that allow you to add different interactions to each instance of the master. You can also use raised events when you want widgets inside a master to affect widgets on the page outside of the master. Raised events are triggered from interactions on widgets within the master.

 

For example, if you create a "Back" or "Previous" button within a master, you can raise an event from the OnClick of the button that can then link to a different page depending on which page the master is used. The benefit is that the button is a master and can be updated in one location.

 

Another example is a situation in which your page has a master and a dynamic panel, and a button within the master needs to hide the panel. You can raise an event from the button click in the master so that an interaction can be defined on the master to hide the dynamic panel.

 

It can take a bit to get comfortable with raised events, but it’s a powerful feature when you need it.
