Control.InitLayout Method

Called after the control has been added to another container.

[Visual Basic]
Protected Overridable Sub InitLayout()
protected virtual void InitLayout();
protected: virtual void InitLayout();
protected function InitLayout();


The InitLayout method is called immediately after adding a control to a container. The InitLayout method allows a control to initialize its layout state based upon its container. For example, you would typically apply anchoring and docking to the control in the InitLayout method.

Notes to Inheritors:  When overriding InitLayout in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's InitLayout method so that the control is displayed correctly.
