Control.EnabledChanged Event

Occurs when the Enabled property value has changed.

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

public event EventHandler EnabledChanged

This event is raised if the Enabled property is changed by either a programmatic modification or user interaction.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example uses two RadioButton controls to demonstrate the EnabledChanged event. Clicking one button changes the value of the Enabled property of the other button to false and displays a MessageBox.

using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

public class Form1 : Form
{
    private RadioButton radioButton1;
    private RadioButton radioButton2;

    public Form1()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
    }
    [STAThread]
    static void Main()
    {
        Application.EnableVisualStyles();
        Application.SetCompatibleTextRenderingDefault(false);
        Application.Run(new Form1());
    }

    private void InitializeComponent()
    {
        this.radioButton1 = new System.Windows.Forms.RadioButton();
        this.radioButton2 = new System.Windows.Forms.RadioButton();
        this.SuspendLayout();
        // 
        // radioButton1
        // 
        this.radioButton1.AutoSize = true;
        this.radioButton1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 0);
        this.radioButton1.Name = "radioButton1";
        this.radioButton1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(62, 17);
        this.radioButton1.TabIndex = 0;
        this.radioButton1.TabStop = true;
        this.radioButton1.Text = "Button1";
        this.radioButton1.UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
        this.radioButton1.EnabledChanged += new System.EventHandler(this.radioButton1_EnabledChanged);
        // 
        // radioButton2
        // 
        this.radioButton2.AutoSize = true;
        this.radioButton2.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 39);
        this.radioButton2.Name = "radioButton2";
        this.radioButton2.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(100, 17);
        this.radioButton2.TabIndex = 1;
        this.radioButton2.TabStop = true;
        this.radioButton2.Text = "Disable Button1";
        this.radioButton2.UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
        this.radioButton2.CheckedChanged += new System.EventHandler(this.radioButton2_CheckedChanged);
        // 
        // Form1
        // 
        this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(292, 273);
        this.Controls.Add(this.radioButton2);
        this.Controls.Add(this.radioButton1);
        this.Name = "Form1";
        this.ResumeLayout(false);
        this.PerformLayout();

    }

    private void radioButton2_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        radioButton1.Enabled = false;
    }

    private void radioButton1_EnabledChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("This button has been disabled.");
    }
}
