DataGridView.OnFontChanged Method

Raises the FontChanged event.

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

protected override void OnFontChanged(
	EventArgs e
)

Parameters

e
Type: System.EventArgs
An EventArgs that contains the event data.

In addition to raising the FontChanged event, this method uses the new value of the Font property to update the Font properties of DataGridViewCellStyle objects returned by the DefaultCellStyle, ColumnHeadersDefaultCellStyle, and RowHeadersDefaultCellStyle properties.

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

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