Control.SetClientSizeCore(Int32, Int32) Control.SetClientSizeCore(Int32, Int32) Control.SetClientSizeCore(Int32, Int32) Control.SetClientSizeCore(Int32, Int32) Method

Definition

Sets the size of the client area of the control.

protected:
 virtual void SetClientSizeCore(int x, int y);
protected virtual void SetClientSizeCore (int x, int y);
abstract member SetClientSizeCore : int * int -> unit
override this.SetClientSizeCore : int * int -> unit
Protected Overridable Sub SetClientSizeCore (x As Integer, y As Integer)

Parameters

x
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The client area width, in pixels.

y
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The client area height, in pixels.

Examples

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

protected:
   virtual void SetClientSizeCore( int x, int y ) override
   {
      // Keep the client size square.
      if ( x > y )
      {
         UserControl::SetClientSizeCore( x, x );
      }
      else
      {
         UserControl::SetClientSizeCore( y, y );
      }
   }
protected override void SetClientSizeCore(int x, int y)
{
   // Keep the client size square.
   if(x > y)
   {
      base.SetClientSizeCore(x, x);
   }
   else
   {
      base.SetClientSizeCore(y, y);
   }
}
Protected Overrides Sub SetClientSizeCore(x As Integer, y As Integer)
   ' Keep the client size square.
   If x > y Then
      MyBase.SetClientSizeCore(x, x)
   Else
      MyBase.SetClientSizeCore(y, y)
   End If
End Sub

Remarks

The client area starts at the (0, 0) location and extends to the (x, y) location.

Typically, you should not set the ClientSize of the control.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding SetClientSizeCore(Int32, Int32) in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's SetClientSizeCore(Int32, Int32) method so that the ClientSize property is adjusted.
