Control Constructor (Control, String, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32)
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)
public Control ( Control parent, string text, int left, int top, int width, int height )
public function Control ( parent : Control, text : String, left : int, top : int, width : int, height : int )
The Control to be the parent of the control.
The text displayed by the control.
The width of the control, in pixels. The value is assigned to the Width property.
The height of the control, in pixels. The value is assigned to the Height property.
The Control class is the base class for all controls used in a Windows Forms application. Because this class is not typically used to create an instance of the class, this constructor is typically not called directly but is instead called by a derived class.
This version of the Control constructor sets the initial Text property value to the text parameter value. The constructor also adds the control to the parent control's Control.ControlCollection. The initial Size and Location of the control are determined by the left, top, width and height parameter values.
To maintain better performance, do not set the size of a control in its constructor. The preferred method is to override the DefaultSize property.
