Button.PerformClick Method

Generates a Click event for a button.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public void PerformClick ()
public final void PerformClick ()
public final function PerformClick ()

This method can be called to raise the Click event.

The following code example generates a Click event of a Button on alternating Click events of another button. This code assumes that two Button controls have been instantiated on a form and that a member variable named myVar has been declared as a 32-bit signed integer within the class.

private void button1_Click (Object sender, 
                               EventArgs e)
 {
    // If myVar is an even number, click Button2.
    if(myVar %2 == 0)
    {
       button2.PerformClick();
       // Display the status of Button2's Click event.
       MessageBox.Show("button2 was clicked ");
    }
    else
    {
       // Display the status of Button2's Click event.
       MessageBox.Show("button2 was NOT clicked");
    }
    // Increment myVar.   
    myVar = myVar + 1;
 }
 

private void button1_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    // If myVar is an even number, click Button2.
    if (myVar % 2 == 0) {
        button2.PerformClick();
        // Display the status of Button2's Click event.
        MessageBox.Show("button2 was clicked ");
    }
    else {
        // Display the status of Button2's Click event.
        MessageBox.Show("button2 was NOT clicked");
    }
    // Increment myVar.   
    myVar = myVar + 1;
} //button1_Click

protected function button1_Click (sender : Object, e : EventArgs)
 {
    // If myVar is an even number, click Button2.
    if(myVar %2 == 0)
    {
       button2.PerformClick();
       // Display the status of Button2's Click event.
       MessageBox.Show("button2 was clicked ");
    }
    else
    {
       // Display the status of Button2's Click event.
       MessageBox.Show("button2 was NOT clicked");
    }
    // Increment myVar.   
    myVar = myVar + 1;
 }
