Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms::Control^

The Control used by this event.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the ControlAdded and ControlRemoved events. The example requires that two Button controls are added to the form and connected to the addControl_Click and removeControl_Click event handling methods.

   // This example demonstrates the use of the ControlAdded and
   // ControlRemoved events. This example assumes that two Button controls
   // are added to the form and connected to the addControl_Click and
   // removeControl_Click event-handler methods.
private:
   void Form1_Load( Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   {
      // Connect the ControlRemoved and ControlAdded event handlers
      // to the event-handler methods.
      // ControlRemoved and ControlAdded are not available at design time.
      this->ControlRemoved += gcnew System::Windows::Forms::ControlEventHandler( this, &Form1::Control_Removed );
      this->ControlAdded += gcnew System::Windows::Forms::ControlEventHandler( this, &Form1::Control_Added );
   }

   void Control_Added( Object^ /*sender*/, System::Windows::Forms::ControlEventArgs^ e )
   {
      MessageBox::Show( String::Format( "The control named {0} has been added to the form.", e->Control->Name ) );
   }

   void Control_Removed( Object^ /*sender*/, System::Windows::Forms::ControlEventArgs^ e )
   {
      MessageBox::Show( String::Format( "The control named {0} has been removed from the form.", e->Control->Name ) );
   }

   // Click event handler for a Button control. Adds a TextBox to the form.
   void addControl_Click( Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   {
      // Create a new TextBox control and add it to the form.
      TextBox^ textBox1 = gcnew TextBox;
      textBox1->Size = System::Drawing::Size( 100, 10 );
      textBox1->Location = Point(10,10);

      // Name the control in order to remove it later. The name must be specified
      // if a control is added at run time.
      textBox1->Name = "textBox1";

      // Add the control to the form's control collection.
      this->Controls->Add( textBox1 );
   }

   // Click event handler for a Button control.
   // Removes the previously added TextBox from the form.
   void removeControl_Click( Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   {
      // Loop through all controls in the form's control collection.
      IEnumerator^ myEnum = this->Controls->GetEnumerator();
      while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
      {
         Control^ tempCtrl = safe_cast<Control^>(myEnum->Current);

         // Determine whether the control is textBox1,
         // and if it is, remove it.
         if ( tempCtrl->Name->Equals( "textBox1" ) )
         {
            this->Controls->Remove( tempCtrl );
         }
      }
   }
