IButtonControl.NotifyDefault Method

Notifies a control that it is the default button so that its appearance and behavior is adjusted accordingly.

[Visual Basic]
Sub NotifyDefault( _
   ByVal value As Boolean _
)
[C#]
void NotifyDefault(
   bool value
);
[C++]
void NotifyDefault(
   bool value
);
[JScript]
function NotifyDefault(
   value : Boolean
);

Parameters

value
true if the control should behave as a default button; otherwise false.

Remarks

This method is called by a parent form to make a control the default button. Default buttons are set to have an extra thick border.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] 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.

[Visual Basic] 
Imports System
Imports System.Windows.Forms
Imports System.Drawing


Public Class MyButton
   Inherits ButtonBase
   Implements IButtonControl 
   Private myDialogResult As DialogResult
      
   Public Sub New()
      ' Make the button White and a Popup style
      ' so it can be distinguished on the form.
      Me.FlatStyle = FlatStyle.Popup
      Me.BackColor = Color.White
   End Sub
   
   ' Add implementation to the IButtonControl.DialogResult property.
   Public Property DialogResult() As DialogResult Implements IButtonControl.DialogResult
      Get
         Return Me.myDialogResult
      End Get
      
      Set
         If [Enum].IsDefined(GetType(DialogResult), value) Then
            Me.myDialogResult = value
         End If
      End Set
   End Property
   
   ' Add implementation to the IButtonControl.NotifyDefault method.
   Public Sub NotifyDefault(value As Boolean) Implements IButtonControl.NotifyDefault
      If Me.IsDefault <> value Then
         Me.IsDefault = value
      End If
   End Sub 
      
   ' Add implementation to the IButtonControl.PerformClick method.
   Public Sub PerformClick() Implements IButtonControl.PerformClick
      If Me.CanSelect Then
         Me.OnClick(EventArgs.Empty)
      End If
   End Sub
