Temporarily stop events from firing in customization

We have a customization that could cause a loop do to an After Field Change Event that involves the same field. Is there a C# statement to Stop (disable) and Start (enable) events that we can use to avoid this potential loop?

There are a lot of things that you can do in C# to validate whether or not something should happen or not. You will probably need to give more specifics for anyone to help you though. “Something in a loop” is not a special property that exists that you can key off of. You will have to run if statements to validate on some condition in the data.

I’ve had something that sounds similar, when I wanted to update a certain field programatically but also respond when it was manually updated. I added some script-level bool variables. Then your event handler is something like:

   doTheCode = false;

So if TheCode() triggers the same event, it won’t be run a second time. You set the variable to true somewhere else, depending on what you’re trying to do.
