Control.OnMouseDown Method

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
);

Parameters

e
A MouseEventArgs that contains the event data.

Remarks

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.
