KeyEventHandler Delegate

Represents the method that will handle the KeyUp or KeyDown event of a Control.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
public delegate void KeyEventHandler(
	Object sender,
	KeyEventArgs e
)

Parameters

sender
Type: System.Object

The source of the event.

e
Type: System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs

A KeyEventArgs that contains the event data.

When you create a KeyEventHandler 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 handling events with delegates, see Events and Delegates.
