ISupportInitialize Interface


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Specifies that this object supports a simple, transacted notification for batch initialization.

Namespace:   System.ComponentModel
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public interface ISupportInitialize


Signals the object that initialization is starting.


Signals the object that initialization is complete.

ISupportInitialize allows controls to optimize multiple property assignments. As a result, you can initialize co-dependent properties or batch set multiple properties at design time.

Call the BeginInit method to signal the object that initialization is starting. Call the EndInit method to signal that initialization is complete.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ISupportInitialize interface to initialize three TrackBar controls.

// trackBar1
this.trackBar1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(160, 400);
this.trackBar1.Name = "trackBar1";
this.trackBar1.TabIndex = 1;
this.trackBar1.Scroll += new System.EventHandler(this.trackBar_Scroll);
// trackBar2
this.trackBar2.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(608, 40);
this.trackBar2.Name = "trackBar2";
this.trackBar2.TabIndex = 2;
this.trackBar2.Scroll += new System.EventHandler(this.trackBar_Scroll);
// trackBar3
this.trackBar3.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(56, 40);
this.trackBar3.Name = "trackBar3";
this.trackBar3.TabIndex = 3;
this.trackBar3.Scroll += new System.EventHandler(this.trackBar_Scroll);
