RefreshEventHandler Delegate


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

Represents the method that handles the Refreshed event raised when a Type or component is changed during design time.

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

[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, SharedState = true)]
public delegate void RefreshEventHandler(
	RefreshEventArgs e


Type: System.ComponentModel.RefreshEventArgs

A RefreshEventArgs that contains the component or Type that changed.

When you create a RefreshEventHandler 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 is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event handler delegates, see NIB: Events and Delegates.

The following sample demonstrates how to use a RefreshEventHandler delegate to handle the Refreshed event when a type or component changes. In the code, the OnRefreshed event handles the event and displays the component being changed.

The code assumes that a TextBox control is already sited on the form.

private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    textBox1.Text = "changed";
    System.ComponentModel.TypeDescriptor.Refreshed += new

protected static void OnRefresh(System.ComponentModel.RefreshEventArgs e)
