This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Raises the OnPaint event.

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

protected override void OnPaint(
	PaintEventArgs pevent


Type: System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs

A PaintEventArgs that contains the event data.

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

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