Occurs when the user switches to an application that uses a different palette.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
This event is only raised if the message pump is running. In a Windows service, unless a hidden form is used or the message pump has been started manually, this event will not be raised. For a code example that shows how to handle system events by using a hidden form in a Windows service, see the SystemEvents class.
Because this is a static event, you must detach your event handlers when your application is disposed, or memory leaks will result.
The following code example demonstrates how to monitor the event. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the SystemEvents class.
'Set the SystemEvents class to receive event notification 'when a user preference changes, the palette changes, or 'when display settings change. AddHandler SystemEvents.UserPreferenceChanging, _ AddressOf SystemEvents_UserPreferenceChanging AddHandler SystemEvents.PaletteChanged, _ AddressOf SystemEvents_PaletteChanged AddHandler SystemEvents.DisplaySettingsChanged, _ AddressOf SystemEvents_DisplaySettingsChanged
