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

public event EventHandler FormatInfoChanged
/** @event */
public void add_FormatInfoChanged (EventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_FormatInfoChanged (EventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the FormatInfoChanged 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 System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show with System.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 ListControl, such as a ComboBox or ListBox. Then name the instance ListControl1 and ensure that the event handler is associated with the FormatInfoChanged event.

private void ListControl1_FormatInfoChanged(Object sender, EventArgs e) {

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the ListControl.FormatInfoChanged event.");
