InvalidateEventArgs Class

Provides data for the Invalidated event.


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

Public Class InvalidateEventArgs _
	Inherits EventArgs

The InvalidateEventArgs type exposes the following members.

Public methodInvalidateEventArgsInitializes a new instance of the InvalidateEventArgs class.

Public propertyInvalidRectGets the Rectangle that contains the invalidated window area.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The Invalidated event occurs when a control's display is updated. An InvalidateEventArgs specifies the rectangle that contains the invalidated window area.

For information about the event model, see Events and Delegates.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this type. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the Invalidated event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of a type that inherits from Control, such as a Button or ComboBox. Then name the instance Control1 and ensure that the event handler is associated with the Invalidated event.

Private Sub Control1_Invalidated(sender as Object, e as InvalidateEventArgs) _ 
     Handles Control1.Invalidated

    Dim messageBoxVB as New System.Text.StringBuilder()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "InvalidRect", e.InvalidRect)
    MessageBox.Show(messageBoxVB.ToString(),"Invalidated Event")

End Sub
