Load Event

Form::Load Event

 

Occurs before a form is displayed for the first time.

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

public:
event EventHandler^ Load {
	void add(EventHandler^ value);
	void remove(EventHandler^ value);
}

You can use this event to perform tasks such as allocating resources used by the form.

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

The following code example demonstrates how to use the SetDesktopLocation, Load, Activated, and Activate members. To run the example, paste the following code in a form called Form1 containing a Button called Button1 and two Label controls called Label1 and Label2.

static int x = 200;
static int y = 200;
void Button1_Click( System::Object^ sender, System::EventArgs^ e )
{

   // Create a new Form1 and set its Visible property to true.
   Form1^ form2 = gcnew Form1;
   form2->Visible = true;

   // Set the new form's desktop location so it  
   // appears below and to the right of the current form.
   form2->SetDesktopLocation( x, y );
   x += 30;
   y += 30;

   // Keep the current form active by calling the Activate
   // method.
   this->Activate();
   this->Button1->Enabled = false;
}


// Updates the label text to reflect the current values of x 
// and y, which was were incremented in the Button1 control's 
// click event.
void Form1_Activated( Object^ sender, System::EventArgs^ e )
{
   Label1->Text = String::Format( "x: {0} y: {1}", x, y );
   Label2->Text = String::Format( "Number of forms currently open: {0}", count );
}

static int count = 0;
void Form1_Closed( Object^ sender, System::EventArgs^ e )
{
   count -= 1;
}

void Form1_Load( Object^ sender, System::EventArgs^ e )
{
   count += 1;
}
