Control.OnKeyDown Method

Silverlight

Called before the KeyDown event occurs.

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

protected virtual void OnKeyDown(
	KeyEventArgs e
)

Parameters

e
Type: System.Windows.Input.KeyEventArgs
The data for the event.

The OnKeyDown method is called before any event handler for the KeyDown event is called. This method allows derived classes to handle the KeyDown event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

This implementation does not change the handled state (the Handled property) of the KeyDown event data.

Notes to Inheritors

If you override OnKeyDown, you can prevent registered delegates from receiving events by setting Handled to true. For more information about routed events and the KeyDown property, see Events Overview for Silverlight.
