OnDeactivate Method

Form.OnDeactivate Method

Raises the Deactivate event.

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


The EventArgs that contains the event data.


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

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