Control.OnKeyUp Method

Raises the KeyUp event.

[Visual Basic]
Protected Overridable Sub OnKeyUp( _
   ByVal e As KeyEventArgs _
)
[C#]
protected virtual void OnKeyUp(
 KeyEventArgs e
);
[C++]
protected: virtual void OnKeyUp(
 KeyEventArgs* e
);
[JScript]
protected function OnKeyUp(
   e : KeyEventArgs
);

Parameters

e
A KeyEventArgs that contains the event data.

Remarks

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

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

Example

[Visual Basic] 
' This example demonstrates how to use the KeyUp event with the Help class to display
' pop-up style help to the user of the application. When the user presses F1, the Help
' class displays a pop-up window, similar to a ToolTip, near the control. This example assumes
' that a TextBox control, named textBox1, has been added to the form and its KeyUp
' event has been contected to this event handling method.
Private Sub textBox1_KeyUp(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles textBox1.KeyUp
    ' Determine whether the key entered is the F1 key. Display help if it is.
    If e.KeyCode = Keys.F1 Then
        ' Display a pop-up help topic to assist the user.
        Help.ShowPopup(textBox1, "Enter your first name", New Point(textBox1.Right, Me.textBox1.Bottom))
    End If
End Sub 'textBox1_KeyUp
