Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

)

Not applicable.

Parameters

e

An EventArgs that contains the event data.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.

Notes to Inheritors: When overriding OnPopup in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnPopup method.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Popup event to determine whether MenuItem objects that provide support for cut, copy, and delete operations are enabled before the menu they are displayed in is shown. The example determines if textBox1, a TextBox control on the form, is enabled, has input focus, and has text selected before enabling the MenuItem objects. This example requires that three MenuItem objects are created named menuCut, menuCopy, and menuDelete have been created.

private void PopupMyMenu(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
   if (textBox1.Enabled == false || textBox1.Focused == false ||
      textBox1.SelectedText.Length == 0)
   {
      menuCut.Enabled = false;
      menuCopy.Enabled = false;
      menuDelete.Enabled = false;
   }
   else
   {
      menuCut.Enabled = true;
      menuCopy.Enabled = true;
      menuDelete.Enabled = true;
   }
}

private void PopupMyMenu(Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    if (textBox1.get_Enabled() == false || textBox1.get_Focused() == false 
        || textBox1.get_SelectedText().get_Length() == 0) {
        menuCut.set_Enabled(false);
        menuCopy.set_Enabled(false);
        menuDelete.set_Enabled(false);
    }
    else {
        menuCut.set_Enabled(true);
        menuCopy.set_Enabled(true);
        menuDelete.set_Enabled(true);
    }
} //PopupMyMenu
