SplitterEventArgs.Y Property

Gets the y-coordinate of the mouse pointer (in client coordinates).

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

public int Y { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The y-coordinate of the mouse pointer.

You can use this property along with the X property of this class to determine the current location of the mouse pointer when the SplitterMoving and SplitterMoved events are raised.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the SplitContainer.SplitterMoved 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 SplitContainer named SplitContainer1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the SplitContainer.SplitterMoved event.

private void SplitContainer1_SplitterMoved(Object sender, SplitterEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "X", e.X );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Y", e.Y );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "SplitX", e.SplitX );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "SplitY", e.SplitY );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "SplitterMoved Event" );
}
