Use this method to receive nonstandard or new events that are not a part of this API. This method installs a handler for customEventType, and when the event occurs, the method that handler points to is executed. You can install more than one handler for the same custom event type. You can also install handlers for multiple custom event types.
|Note: In some cases, callbacks and event handlers are executed in a different thread than the rest of the program. Therefore, you must take special care when accessing objects that have thread affinity, such as UI controls, from these callbacks and event handlers.
