Event-driven exchanges
In an event-driven exchange, the DDE server application sends the value of the data item to the client whenever the value of the data item changes. Each server data item you set up for event-driven exchange actually participates in a series of exchanges, totally dependent on how often the data item changes. If the data item never changes value, no exchange occurs.
