Help for Event Handlers in Visual Basic Code


Updated: July 20, 2015

For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

To get Help on a particular event handler while in the code editor, put your cursor on the Handles clause at the back end of the event procedure, then press F1. For example, in the Form1_Load statement below, the correct place to put the cursor is in MyBase.Load:

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object,   
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load  
End Sub
