Control.DockChanged Event

Occurs when the value of the Dock property changes.

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

'Declaration
Public Event DockChanged As EventHandler
'Usage
Dim instance As Control
Dim handler As EventHandler

AddHandler instance.DockChanged, handler

/** @event */
public void add_DockChanged (EventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_DockChanged (EventHandler value)

JScript supports the use of events, but not the declaration of new ones.

This event is raised if the Dock property is changed by either a programmatic modification or user interaction.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example is an event handler that is executed when the Text property value changes. The Control class has several methods with the name pattern PropertyNameChanged that are raised when the corresponding PropertyName value changes(PropertyName represents the name of the corresponding property).

The following code example changes the ForeColor of a TextBox displaying currency data. The example converts the text to a decimal number and changes the ForeColor to Color.Red if the number is negative and to Color.Black if the number is positive. This example requires that you have a Form that contains a TextBox.

Private Sub currencyTextBox_TextChanged(sender As Object, _ 
  e As EventArgs) Handles currencyTextBox.TextChanged
   Try
      ' Convert the text to a Double and determine if it is a negative number.
      If Double.Parse(currencyTextBox.Text) < 0 Then
         ' If the number is negative, display it in Red.
         currencyTextBox.ForeColor = Color.Red
      Else
         ' If the number is not negative, display it in Black.
         currencyTextBox.ForeColor = Color.Black
      End If
   Catch
      ' If there is an error, display the text using the system colors.
      currencyTextBox.ForeColor = SystemColors.ControlText
   End Try
End Sub 

private void currencyTextBox_TextChanged(Object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    try {
        // Convert the text to a Double and determine if it is a 
        // negative number.
        if (System.Double.Parse(currencyTextBox.get_Text()) < 0) {
            // If the number is negative, display it in Red.
            currencyTextBox.set_ForeColor(Color.get_Red());
        }
        else {
            // If the number is not negative, display it in Black.
            currencyTextBox.set_ForeColor(Color.get_Black());
        }
    }
    catch (System.Exception exp) {
        // If there is an error, display the text using the system colors.
        currencyTextBox.set_ForeColor(SystemColors.get_ControlText());
    }
} //currencyTextBox_TextChanged
