ExtractorMessage.handled property

If the IExtractorInvokeOptions.messageCallback sets this property to true, it will prevent the message from being displayed by API Extractor.


get handled(): boolean;

set handled(value: boolean);


If the messageCallback routes the message to a custom handler (e.g. a toolchain logger), it should assign handled = true to prevent API Extractor from displaying it. Assigning handled = true for all messages would effectively disable all console output from the Extractor API.

If handled is set to true, the message will still be included in the count of errors/warnings; to discard a message entirely, instead assign logLevel = none.
