Control.OnCreateControl Method

Raises the CreateControl method.

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

protected virtual void OnCreateControl()

The OnCreateControl method is called when the control is first created.

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