In GP-tools written in C# (ArcObjects) we can listen for the Cancel-event and react on that. I wonder if there is anything similar in Python GP-tools applying arcpy. I googled that issue and the only thing I found was the Cancel-method on the Result-Object (so that you can ask the state of the result of a GP-tool, i.e. if it was canceled). I'm aware that you can cancel GP-tools running in the background in the Result Window, but this Cancel-event is catched by the system and therefore the developer or the GP-tool cannot react on that. Thank You in advance!
