DataGridView.OnColumnHeaderMouseClick Method

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Raises the ColumnHeaderMouseClick event.

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

protected virtual void OnColumnHeaderMouseClick (
	DataGridViewCellMouseEventArgs e
protected void OnColumnHeaderMouseClick (
	DataGridViewCellMouseEventArgs e
protected function OnColumnHeaderMouseClick (
	e : DataGridViewCellMouseEventArgs



A DataGridViewCellMouseEventArgs that contains the event data.

Exception typeCondition


The value of the ColumnIndex property of e is less than zero or greater than the number of columns in the control minus one.

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

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