Examples

The following code example uses the Count property to print the number of events attached to button1. It requires that button1 and textBox1 have been instantiated on a form.

private:
   void GetCount()
   {
      // Creates a new collection and assigns it the events for button1.
      EventDescriptorCollection^ events = TypeDescriptor::GetEvents( button1 );
      
      // Prints the number of events on button1 in a text box.
      textBox1->Text = events->Count.ToString();
   }
private void GetCount() {
    // Creates a new collection and assigns it the events for button1.
    EventDescriptorCollection events = TypeDescriptor.GetEvents(button1);
 
    // Prints the number of events on button1 in a text box.
    textBox1.Text = events.Count.ToString();
 }

Private Sub GetCount()
    ' Creates a new collection and assigns it the events for button1.
    Dim events As EventDescriptorCollection = TypeDescriptor.GetEvents(button1)
    
    ' Prints the number of events on button1 in a text box.
    textBox1.Text = events.Count.ToString()
End Sub

Remarks

The Count property can be used to set the limits of a loop that iterates through a collection of objects. If the collection is zero-based, be sure to use Count - 1 as the upper boundary of the loop.
