IButtonControl Interface

Allows a control to act like a button on a form.

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

public interface IButtonControl
public interface IButtonControl
public interface IButtonControl
Not applicable.

An example of where this interface might be implemented is default and cancel button processing. Default buttons are notified when an unprocessed ENTER key is entered for a form, just like a dialog box would be closed. Similarly, cancel buttons are notified whenever an unprocessed ESC key is entered on a form, much like a dialog box would be dismissed.

Notes to Implementers: Implement this interface in classes that act as button controls. The members of this interface will provide basic button functionality, such as providing a DialogResult to the parent form or the ability to perform a Click event, or acting as the default button of a form.

The following example inherits from the ButtonBase class and implements the IButtonControl interface. Implementation is added to the DialogResult property and the NotifyDefault and PerformClick methods.

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Drawing;

public class MyButton : ButtonBase, IButtonControl
{
	private DialogResult myDialogResult;

	public MyButton()
	{
		// Make the button White and a Popup style
		// so it can be distinguished on the form.
		this.FlatStyle = FlatStyle.Popup;
		this.BackColor = Color.White;
	}
		
	// Add implementation to the IButtonControl.DialogResult property.
	public DialogResult DialogResult
	{
		get
		{
			return this.myDialogResult;
		}

		set
		{
			if(Enum.IsDefined(typeof(DialogResult), value))				
			{
				this.myDialogResult = value;
			}
		}	
	}

	// Add implementation to the IButtonControl.NotifyDefault method.
	public void NotifyDefault(bool value)
	{
		if(this.IsDefault != value)
		{
			this.IsDefault = value;
		}
	}

	// Add implementation to the IButtonControl.PerformClick method.
	public void PerformClick()
	{
		if(this.CanSelect)
		{
			this.OnClick(EventArgs.Empty);
		}
	}
}

    public MyButton()
