Control.OnDragEnter Method

Raises the DragEnter event.

[Visual Basic]
Protected Overridable Sub OnDragEnter( _
   ByVal drgevent As DragEventArgs _
protected virtual void OnDragEnter(
 DragEventArgs drgevent
protected: virtual void OnDragEnter(
 DragEventArgs* drgevent
protected function OnDragEnter(
   drgevent : DragEventArgs


A DragEventArgs that contains the event data.


Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.

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