Examples

The following code example demonstrates an extension of the button class that overrides the ProcessMnemonic method to exhibit custom behavior. The example also demonstrates the use of the CanSelect and IsMnemonic properties. To run this example paste the following code after a form class, in the same file. Add a button of type MnemonicButton to the form.

// This button is a simple extension of the button class that overrides
// the ProcessMnemonic method.  If the mnemonic is correctly entered,  
// the message box will appear and the click event will be raised.  
// This method makes sure the control is selectable and the 
// mnemonic is correct before displaying the message box
// and triggering the click event.
public ref class MyMnemonicButton: public Button
{
protected:
   bool ProcessMnemonic( char inputChar )
   {
      if ( CanSelect && IsMnemonic( inputChar, this->Text ) )
      {
         MessageBox::Show( "You've raised the click event "
         "using the mnemonic." );
         this->PerformClick();
         return true;
      }

      return false;
   }

};


// This button is a simple extension of the button class that overrides
// the ProcessMnemonic method.  If the mnemonic is correctly entered,  
// the message box will appear and the click event will be raised.  
public class MyMnemonicButton:Button

	// This method makes sure the control is selectable and the 
	// mneumonic is correct before displaying the message box
	// and triggering the click event.
