StatusBarPanelClickEventArgs Class

Provides data for the PanelClick event.

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

public class StatusBarPanelClickEventArgs : MouseEventArgs
public class StatusBarPanelClickEventArgs extends MouseEventArgs
public class StatusBarPanelClickEventArgs extends MouseEventArgs
Not applicable.

The PanelClick event occurs when the user clicks a panel on the StatusBar. A StatusBarPanelClickEventArgs specifies which StatusBarPanel was clicked, the mouse button that was pressed, how many times it was pressed, and the coordinates of the mouse click at the time the StatusBarPanel was clicked. You can use the data provided by this class in an event handler for the PanelClick event to perform tasks related to the StatusBarPanel being clicked. For example, if a StatusBarPanel is used to display the time, you could create an event handler for the PanelClick event and use data provided by this class to display a dialog box that allows you to modify the date and time on the system.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this type. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the PanelClick 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 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 type StatusBar named StatusBar1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the PanelClick event.

private void StatusBar1_PanelClick(Object sender, StatusBarPanelClickEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "StatusBarPanel", e.StatusBarPanel );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Button", e.Button );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Clicks", e.Clicks );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "X", e.X );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Y", e.Y );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Delta", e.Delta );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Location", e.Location );
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "PanelClick Event" );
