SystemColorsChanged Event

Control.SystemColorsChanged Event


Occurs when the system colors change.

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

public event EventHandler SystemColorsChanged

This event is raised if the SystemColors is changed by either a programmatic modification or user interaction.

For more information about handling events, see Handling and Raising Events.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the SystemColorsChanged event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of a type that inherits from Control, such as a Button or ComboBox. Then name the instance Control1 and ensure that the event handler is associated with the SystemColorsChanged event.

private void Control1_SystemColorsChanged(Object sender, EventArgs e) {

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the Control.SystemColorsChanged event.");
