PassEventsDown

PassEventsDown
is an option to EventHandler which specifies whether events handled by a particular event handler should be passed down to event handlers nested inside.
  • Possible settings are:
Truepass all events down
Falsepass no events down
Automaticpass events down only to explicit EventHandler constructs
  • The setting PassEventsDown->Automatic prevents events from being passed to built-in event handlers in the Mathematica front end that implement operations such as editing.
By default, EventHandler intercepts the specified event:
