Raises the MouseDown event.
[Visual Basic] Protected Overridable Sub OnMouseDown( _ ByVal e As MouseEventArgs _ ) [C#] protected virtual void OnMouseDown( MouseEventArgs e ); [C++] protected: virtual void OnMouseDown( MouseEventArgs* e ); [JScript] protected function OnMouseDown( e : MouseEventArgs );
- A MouseEventArgs that contains the event data.
Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.
The OnMouseDown 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 OnMouseDown in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnMouseDown method so that registered delegates receive the event.
