IMessageFilter.PreFilterMessage Method

Filters out a message before it is dispatched.

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

[SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)]
bool PreFilterMessage(
	ref Message m
)

Parameters

m
Type: System.Windows.Forms.Message

The message to be dispatched. You cannot modify this message.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true to filter the message and stop it from being dispatched; false to allow the message to continue to the next filter or control.

Use PreFilterMessage to filter out a message before it is dispatched to a control or form. For example, to stop the Click event of a Button control from being dispatched to the control, you implement the PreFilterMessage method and return a true value when the Click message occurs. You can also use this method to perform code work that you might need to do before the message is dispatched.
