CancelEventHandler Delegate

Represents the method that handles a cancellable event.

[Visual Basic]
Public Delegate Sub CancelEventHandler( _
   ByVal sender As Object, _
   ByVal e As CancelEventArgs _
public delegate void CancelEventHandler(
   object sender,
   CancelEventArgs e
public __gc __delegate void CancelEventHandler(
   Object* sender,
   CancelEventArgs* e

[JScript] In JScript, you can use the delegates in the .NET Framework, but you cannot define your own.

Parameters [Visual Basic, C#, C++]

The declaration of your event handler must have the same parameters as the CancelEventHandler delegate declaration.

The source of the event.
A CancelEventArgs that contains the event data.


When you create a CancelEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event-handler method is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event-handler delegates, see Events and Delegates.


For an example of how to use the CancelEventHandler delegate, please see the sample code in the CancelEventArgs class.
