Control.Invalidate Method (Region, Boolean)

.NET Framework 1.1

Invalidates the specified region of the control (adds it to the control's update region, which is the area that will be repainted at the next paint operation), and causes a paint message to be sent to the control. Optionally, invalidates the child controls assigned to the control.

[Visual Basic]
Overloads Public Sub Invalidate( _
   ByVal region As Region, _
   ByVal invalidateChildren As Boolean _
)
[C#]
public void Invalidate(
 Region region,
 bool invalidateChildren
);
[C++]
public: void Invalidate(
 Region* region,
 bool invalidateChildren
);
[JScript]
public function Invalidate(
   region : Region,
 invalidateChildren : Boolean
);

Parameters

region
The Region to invalidate.
invalidateChildren
true to invalidate the control's child controls; otherwise, false.

Remarks

Calling the Invalidate method does not force a synchronous paint; to force a synchronous paint, call the Update method after calling the Invalidate method. When this method is called with no parameters, the entire client area is added to the update region.

Requirements

Platforms: Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 2000, Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional, Windows Server 2003 family
