Control.OnKeyUp Method

Raises the KeyUp event.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

protected virtual void OnKeyUp (
	KeyEventArgs e
)
protected void OnKeyUp (
	KeyEventArgs e
)
protected function OnKeyUp (
	e : KeyEventArgs
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

e

A KeyEventArgs that contains the event data.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.

The OnKeyUp method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors: When overriding OnKeyUp in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnKeyUp method so that registered delegates receive the event.

The following code example uses the KeyUp event with the Help class to display pop-up style help to the user.

// This example demonstrates how to use the KeyUp event with the Help class to display
// pop-up style help to the user of the application. When the user presses F1, the Help
// class displays a pop-up window, similar to a ToolTip, near the control. This example assumes
// that a TextBox control, named textBox1, has been added to the form and its KeyUp
// event has been contected to this event handler method.
private void textBox1_KeyUp(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs e)
{
    // Determine whether the key entered is the F1 key. Display help if it is.
    if(e.KeyCode == Keys.F1)
    {
        // Display a pop-up help topic to assist the user.
        Help.ShowPopup(textBox1, "Enter your first name", new Point(textBox1.Right, this.textBox1.Bottom));
    }
}
