ConvertEventHandler Delegate

Represents the method that will handle the Parse and Format events of a Binding.

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

public delegate void ConvertEventHandler(
	Object sender,
	ConvertEventArgs e
)

Parameters

sender
Type: System.Object

The source of the event.

e
Type: System.Windows.Forms.ConvertEventArgs

A ConvertEventArgs that contains the event data.

When you create a ConvertEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event-handler delegates, see Handling and Raising Events.

The following code

example creates a Binding, adds a ConvertEventHandler delegate to both the Parse and Format events, and adds the Binding to the BindingsCollection of a TextBox control through the DataBindings property. The DecimalToCurrency event delegate, added to the Format event, formats the bound value (a Decimal type) as currency using the ToString method. The CurrencyToDecimal event delegate, added to the Parse event, converts the value displayed by the control back to the Decimal type.

private void DecimalToCurrency(object sender, ConvertEventArgs cevent)
{
   // The method converts only to string type. Test this using the DesiredType. 
   if (cevent.DesiredType != typeof(string)) return;

   // Use the ToString method to format the value as currency ("c").
   cevent.Value = ((decimal) cevent.Value).ToString("c");
}

private void CurrencyToDecimal(object sender, ConvertEventArgs cevent)
{
   // ' The method converts only to decimal type.  
   if (cevent.DesiredType != typeof(decimal)) return;

   // Converts the string back to decimal using the static ToDecimal method.
   cevent.Value = Convert.ToDecimal(cevent.Value.ToString());
}

private void BindControl()
{
   // Creates the binding first. The OrderAmount is typed as Decimal.
   Binding b = new Binding
      ("Text", ds, "customers.custToOrders.OrderAmount");
   // Add the delegates to the events.
   b.Format += new ConvertEventHandler(DecimalToCurrency);
   b.Parse += new ConvertEventHandler(CurrencyToDecimal);
   text1.DataBindings.Add(b);
}
