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

public event SplitterEventHandler SplitterMoved

For more information about handling events, see Handling and Raising Events.

The following code example raises the SplitterMoving event, signified in this example by a change to the cursor style when you move the splitter. The SplitterMoved event is raised when you stop moving the splitter. This is signified in this example by the cursor style reverting to the default.
