Raises the AfterInstall event.

Namespace:   System.Configuration.Install
Assembly:  System.Configuration.Install (in System.Configuration.Install.dll)

virtual void OnAfterInstall(
	IDictionary^ savedState


Type: System.Collections::IDictionary^

An IDictionary that contains the state of the computer after all the installers contained in the Installers property have completed their installations.

This method is called after the Install methods of all the installers in this instance's InstallerCollection run.

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

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

The following example demonstrates the OnAfterInstall method. This method is overridden in the derived class. Space is provided to add steps to be done after the installation in the OnAfterInstall method.

   // Override the 'OnAfterInstall' method.
   virtual void OnAfterInstall( IDictionary^ savedState ) override
      Installer::OnAfterInstall( savedState );
      // Add steps to be done after the installation is over.
      Console::WriteLine( "OnAfterInstall method of MyInstaller called" );
