Form.OnShown Method (EventArgs)


Raises the Shown event.

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

abstract OnShown : 
        e:EventArgs -> unit
override OnShown : 
        e:EventArgs -> unit


Type: System.EventArgs

A EventArgs that contains the event data.

The Shown event occurs whenever the form is first shown.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Handling and Raising Events.

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