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

[<SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand,
    Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)>]
[<SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)>]
abstract OnPreviewKeyDown : 
        e:PreviewKeyDownEventArgs -> unit
[<SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand,
    Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)>]
[<SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)>]
override OnPreviewKeyDown : 
        e:PreviewKeyDownEventArgs -> unit

Parameters

e
Type: System.Windows.Forms.PreviewKeyDownEventArgs

A PreviewKeyDownEventArgs that contains the event data.

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

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