protected virtual void OnFormat(
	ConvertEventArgs cevent


Type: System.Windows.Forms.ConvertEventArgs

A ConvertEventArgs that contains the event data.

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

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