Methods
  Name Summary
Events
  Name Summary
ItemLabelChanged
The ItemLabelChanged event occurs when the name of this node or any scope boundary ancestor (as determined by following ParentItem to the AstRootNode) name changes.
NameChanged
The NameChanged event occurs when the Name property of the current node has changed to a new value and that value has been committed.
NameChanging
The NameChanging event occurs when the Name property of the current node is receiving a new value but that value has not yet been committed.
ScopeBoundaryChanged
The ScopeBoundaryChanged event occurs when any ancestor (as determined by following ParentItem to the AstRootNode) changes in such a way as the ScopeBoundary for this node changes. This will force the ScopedName of this node to change if it is an AstNamedNode.
ScopedNameChanged
The ScopedNameChanged event occurs when the name of this node or any scope boundary ancestor (as determined by following ParentItem to the AstRootNode) name changes.
