OnDropDown Method

ComboBox.OnDropDown Method (EventArgs)


Raises the DropDown event.

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

abstract OnDropDown : 
        e:EventArgs -> unit
override OnDropDown : 
        e:EventArgs -> unit


Type: System.EventArgs

An EventArgs that contains the event data.

This event is raised each time the drop-down is displayed.

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

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