Control.SetBoundsCore(Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, BoundsSpecified) Control.SetBoundsCore(Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, BoundsSpecified) Control.SetBoundsCore(Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, BoundsSpecified) Control.SetBoundsCore(Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, BoundsSpecified) Method

Definition

Performs the work of setting the specified bounds of this control.

protected:
 virtual void SetBoundsCore(int x, int y, int width, int height, System::Windows::Forms::BoundsSpecified specified);
protected virtual void SetBoundsCore (int x, int y, int width, int height, System.Windows.Forms.BoundsSpecified specified);
abstract member SetBoundsCore : int * int * int * int * System.Windows.Forms.BoundsSpecified -> unit
override this.SetBoundsCore : int * int * int * int * System.Windows.Forms.BoundsSpecified -> unit
Protected Overridable Sub SetBoundsCore (x As Integer, y As Integer, width As Integer, height As Integer, specified As BoundsSpecified)

Parameters

x
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The new Left property value of the control.

y
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The new Top property value of the control.

width
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The new Width property value of the control.

height
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The new Height property value of the control.

specified
BoundsSpecified BoundsSpecified BoundsSpecified BoundsSpecified

A bitwise combination of the BoundsSpecified values.

Examples

The following code example overrides the SetBoundsCore method to ensure that the control remains a fixed size. This example requires that you have a class that is either directly or indirectly derived from the Control class.

protected:
   virtual void SetBoundsCore( int x, int y, int width, int height, BoundsSpecified specified ) override
   {
      // Set a fixed height and width for the control.
      UserControl::SetBoundsCore( x, y, 150, 75, specified );
   }
protected override void SetBoundsCore(int x, int y, 
   int width, int height, BoundsSpecified specified)
{
   // Set a fixed height and width for the control.
   base.SetBoundsCore(x, y, 150, 75, specified);
}
Protected Overrides Sub SetBoundsCore(x As Integer, _
  y As Integer, width As Integer, _
  height As Integer, specified As BoundsSpecified)
   ' Set a fixed height and width for the control.
   MyBase.SetBoundsCore(x, y, 150, 75, specified)
End Sub

Remarks

Typically, the parameters that correspond to the bounds not included in the specified parameter are passed in with their current values. For example, the Height, Width, or the X or Y properties of the Location property can be passed in with a reference to the current instance of the control. However all values passed in are honored and applied to the control.

The boundsSpecified parameter represents the elements of the controls Bounds changed by your application. For example, if you change the Size of the control, the boundsSpecified parameter value is the Size value of BoundsSpecified. However, if the Size is adjusted in response to the Dock property being set, the boundsSpecified parameter value is the None value of BoundsSpecified.

Note

On Windows Server 2003 systems, the size of a Form is restricted by the maximum pixel width and height of the monitor.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding SetBoundsCore(Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, BoundsSpecified) in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's SetBoundsCore(Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, BoundsSpecified) method to force the bounds of the control to change. Derived classes can add size restrictions to the SetBoundsCore(Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, BoundsSpecified) method.
