CheckedListBox.OnKeyPress Method

Raises the KeyPress event.

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

protected override void OnKeyPress(
	KeyPressEventArgs e
)

Parameters

e
Type: System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs

The KeyPressEventArgs that was raised.

If the spacebar is pressed and the SelectionMode property is not set to SelectionMode.None, the OnKeyPress method switches the check state of the item currently selected.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.

The OnKeyPress method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors:

When overriding OnKeyPress in a derived class, be sure to call the base class’s OnKeyPress method so that registered delegates receive the event.
