ListControl.Format Event

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

Occurs when the control is bound to a data value.

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

public event ListControlConvertEventHandler Format
/** @event */
public void add_Format (ListControlConvertEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_Format (ListControlConvertEventHandler value)

JScript supports the use of events, but not the declaration of new ones.

The Format event is raised before each visible item in the ListControl is formatted. Handling this event gives you access to the string to be displayed for this list item, through the Value property of the ListControlConvertEventArgs.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.
