TextBoxBase.SetBoundsCore Method

Sets the specified bounds of the TextBoxBase control.

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

protected override void SetBoundsCore(
	int x,
	int y,
	int width,
	int height,
	BoundsSpecified specified
)

Parameters

x
Type: System.Int32

The new Left property value of the control.

y
Type: System.Int32

The new Top property value of the control.

width
Type: System.Int32

The new Width property value of the control.

height
Type: System.Int32

Not used.

specified
Type: System.Windows.Forms.BoundsSpecified

A bitwise combination of the BoundsSpecified values.

The TextBoxBase control uses the PreferredHeight property to set the bounds if the AutoSize property is true and the Multiline property is false.

Typically, the parameters that correspond to the bounds not included in the specified parameter are passed in with their current values. For example, the Height, Width, or the X or Y properties of the Location property can be passed in with a reference to the current instance of the control. However all values passed in are honored and applied to the control.

The specified parameter represents the elements of the controls Bounds changed by your application. For example, if you change the Size of the control, the specified parameter value is the Size value of BoundsSpecified. However, if the Size is adjusted in response to the Dock property being set, the specified parameter value is the None value of BoundsSpecified.

Notes to Inheritors:

When overriding SetBoundsCore in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's SetBoundsCore method to force the bounds of the control to change. Derived classes can add size restrictions to the SetBoundsCore method.
