Form.OnFormClosed Method

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Raises the FormClosed event.

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

protected virtual void OnFormClosed (
	FormClosedEventArgs e
protected void OnFormClosed (
	FormClosedEventArgs e
protected function OnFormClosed (
	e : FormClosedEventArgs



A FormClosedEventArgs that contains the event data.

The OnFormClosing method removes the current form from the OpenForms collection of the associated Application.

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

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