ComboBox.OnDrawItem Method

Raises the DrawItem event.

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

protected virtual void OnDrawItem(
	DrawItemEventArgs e
)

Parameters

e
Type: System.Windows.Forms.DrawItemEventArgs
A DrawItemEventArgs that contains the event data.

This method is called each time an owner-drawn ComboBox item needs to be drawn and after OnMeasureItem is called. For more information, see DrawItem.

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

The OnDrawItem 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 OnDrawItem in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnDrawItem method so that registered delegates receive the event.
