Control.OnValidating Method

Raises the Validating event.

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


A CancelEventArgs that contains the event data.


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

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