Control.OnMouseEnter Method

Raises the MouseEnter event.

[Visual Basic]
Protected Overridable Sub OnMouseEnter( _
   ByVal e As EventArgs _
protected virtual void OnMouseEnter(
 EventArgs e
protected: virtual void OnMouseEnter(
 EventArgs* e
protected function OnMouseEnter(
   e : EventArgs


An EventArgs that contains the event data.


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

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