OnDropDownShow Method

ToolStripMenuItem.OnDropDownShow Method

Raised in response to the ShowDropDown method.

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

protected override void OnDropDownShow(
	EventArgs e
)

Parameters

e
Type: System.EventArgs

An EventArgs that contains the event data.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Handling and Raising Events.

The OnDropDownShow method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding OnDropDownShow in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnDropDownShow method so that registered delegates receive the event.
