Control.OnHelpRequested Method

Raises the HelpRequested event.

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

protected virtual void OnHelpRequested(
	HelpEventArgs hevent
)

Parameters

hevent
Type: System.Windows.Forms.HelpEventArgs

A HelpEventArgs that contains the event data.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Handling and Raising Events.

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