Control.SystemColorsChanged Event

Occurs when the system colors change.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

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

AddHandler instance.SystemColorsChanged, handler

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

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the SystemColorsChanged event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of a type that inherits from Control, such as a Button or ComboBox. Then name the instance Control1 and ensure that the event handler is associated with the SystemColorsChanged event.

Private Sub Control1_SystemColorsChanged(sender as Object, e as EventArgs) _ 
     Handles Control1.SystemColorsChanged

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the Control.SystemColorsChanged event.")

End Sub
