OnKeyDown Method

NumericUpDown.OnKeyDown Method (KeyEventArgs)


Raises the KeyDown event.

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

protected override void OnKeyDown(
	KeyEventArgs e


Type: System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs

A KeyEventArgs that contains the event data.

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

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