Control.OnBackColorChanged Method

Raises the BackColorChanged event.

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

protected:
virtual void OnBackColorChanged (
	EventArgs^ e
)
protected void OnBackColorChanged (
	EventArgs e
)
protected function OnBackColorChanged (
	e : EventArgs
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

e

An EventArgs that contains the event data.

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

The OnBackColorChanged 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 OnBackColorChanged in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnBackColorChanged method so that registered delegates receive the event.

The following code example is an event-raising method that is executed when the Text property value changes. The Control class has several methods with the name pattern OnPropertyNameChanged that raise the corresponding PropertyNameChanged event when the PropertyName value changes (PropertyName represents the name of the corresponding property).

The following code example changes the ForeColor of a TextBox derived class 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 class that derives from the TextBox class.

protected:
   virtual void OnTextChanged( System::EventArgs^ e ) override
   {
      try
      {
         // Convert the text to a Double and determine
         // if it is a negative number.
         if ( Double::Parse( this->Text ) < 0 )
         {
            // If the number is negative, display it in Red.
            this->ForeColor = Color::Red;
         }
         else
         {
            // If the number is not negative, display it in Black.
            this->ForeColor = Color::Black;
         }
      }
      catch ( Exception^ ) 
      {
         // If there is an error, display the
         // text using the system colors.
         this->ForeColor = SystemColors::ControlText;
      }

      TextBox::OnTextChanged( e );
   }

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