Binding.OnFormat Method

Raises the Format event.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

abstract OnFormat : 
        cevent:ConvertEventArgs -> unit  
override OnFormat : 
        cevent:ConvertEventArgs -> unit

Parameters

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.
