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

public class ControlEventArgs : EventArgs
public class ControlEventArgs extends EventArgs
public class ControlEventArgs extends EventArgs

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the ControlAdded and ControlRemoved events. The example requires that two Button controls are added to the form and connected to the addControl_Click and removeControl_Click event handling methods.

// This example demonstrates the use of the ControlAdded and
// ControlRemoved events. This example assumes that two Button controls
// are added to the form and connected to the addControl_Click and
// removeControl_Click event-handler methods.
private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    // Connect the ControlRemoved and ControlAdded event handlers
    // to the event-handler methods.
    // ControlRemoved and ControlAdded are not available at design time.
    this.ControlRemoved += new System.Windows.Forms.ControlEventHandler(this.Control_Removed);
    this.ControlAdded += new System.Windows.Forms.ControlEventHandler(this.Control_Added);
}

private void Control_Added(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.ControlEventArgs e)
{
    MessageBox.Show("The control named " + e.Control.Name + " has been added to the form.");
}

private void Control_Removed(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.ControlEventArgs e)
{
    MessageBox.Show("The control named " + e.Control.Name + " has been removed from the form.");
}

// Click event handler for a Button control. Adds a TextBox to the form.
private void addControl_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    // Create a new TextBox control and add it to the form.
    TextBox textBox1 = new TextBox();
    textBox1.Size = new Size(100,10);
    textBox1.Location = new Point(10,10);
    // Name the control in order to remove it later. The name must be specified
    // if a control is added at run time.
    textBox1.Name = "textBox1";

    // Add the control to the form's control collection.
    this.Controls.Add(textBox1);
}

// Click event handler for a Button control.
// Removes the previously added TextBox from the form.
private void removeControl_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    // Loop through all controls in the form's control collection.
    foreach (Control tempCtrl in this.Controls)
    {
        // Determine whether the control is textBox1,
        // and if it is, remove it.
        if (tempCtrl.Name == "textBox1")
        {
            this.Controls.Remove(tempCtrl);
        }
