StatusBarPanelClickEventArgs.StatusBarPanel Property


Gets the StatusBarPanel to draw.

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

public StatusBarPanel StatusBarPanel { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.StatusBarPanel

The StatusBarPanel to draw.

The StatusBarPanel property enables you to obtain the StatusBarPanel that was clicked. You can use this within the event handler for the PanelClick event of a StatusBar control to perform tasks such as displaying custom dialog boxes when a StatusBarPanel within a StatusBar control is clicked.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the StatusBar.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 MessageBox.Show with 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 StatusBar.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" );
