Control.CreateHandle Method

Creates a handle for the control.

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

[UIPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Window = UIPermissionWindow.AllWindows)]
protected virtual void CreateHandle()

ExceptionCondition
ObjectDisposedException

The object is in a disposed state.

You typically should not call the CreateHandle method directly. The preferred method is to call the CreateControl method, which forces a handle to be created for the control and its child controls when the control is created.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding CreateHandle in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's CreateHandle method to ensure that the handle is created.
