AutoCompleteBox.OnPopulated Method


Raises the Populated event

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

protected virtual void OnPopulated(
	PopulatedEventArgs e


Type: System.Windows.Controls.PopulatedEventArgs
A PopulatedEventArgs that contains the event data.

The Populated event occurs when the AutoCompleteBox has populated the drop-down portion of the AutoCompleteBox with possible matches based on text entered by the user.

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