Control Constructor (String, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the Control class with specific text, size, and location.

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

public Control(
	string text,
	int left,
	int top,
	int width,
	int height
)

Parameters

text
Type: System.String
The text displayed by the control.
left
Type: System.Int32
The X position of the control, in pixels, from the left edge of the control's container. The value is assigned to the Left property.
top
Type: System.Int32
The Y position of the control, in pixels, from the top edge of the control's container. The value is assigned to the Top property.
width
Type: System.Int32
The width of the control, in pixels. The value is assigned to the Width property.
height
Type: System.Int32
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 initial Size and Location of the control are determined by the left, top, width and height parameter values.

NoteNote

To maintain better performance, do not set the size of a control in its constructor. The preferred method is to override the DefaultSize property.
