AutoCompleteBox.OnDropDownOpening Method


Raises the DropDownOpening event.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  System.Windows.Controls.Input (in System.Windows.Controls.Input.dll)

protected virtual void OnDropDownOpening(
	RoutedPropertyChangingEventArgs<bool> e

The DropDownOpening event occurs when the IsDropDownOpen property is changing from false to true.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. The OnDropDownOpening 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 OnDropDownOpening in a derived class, be sure to call the base class’s OnDropDownOpening method so that registered delegates receive the event.
