Remarks

The VisibleMonthChanged event is raised when the user clicks the next or previous month navigation elements on the title section.

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

The OnVisibleMonthChanged 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 OnVisibleMonthChanged(DateTime, DateTime) in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnVisibleMonthChanged(DateTime, DateTime) method so that registered delegates receive the event.
