ControlEventHandler Delegate

Definition

Represents the method that will handle the ControlAdded and ControlRemoved events of the Control class.

public delegate void ControlEventHandler(System::Object ^ sender, ControlEventArgs ^ e);
public delegate void ControlEventHandler(object sender, ControlEventArgs e);
type ControlEventHandler = delegate of obj * ControlEventArgs -> unit
Public Delegate Sub ControlEventHandler(sender As Object, e As ControlEventArgs)

Parameters

sender
Object

The source of the event.

e
ControlEventArgs

A ControlEventArgs that contains the event data.

Inheritance
ControlEventHandler

Examples

The following code example creates a Binding, adds a ConvertEventHandler delegate to both the Parse and Format events, and adds the Binding to the BindingsCollection of a TextBox control through the DataBindings property. The DecimalToCurrencyString event delegate, added to the Format event, formats the bound value (a Decimal type) as currency using the ToString method. The CurrencyStringToDecimal event delegate, added to the Parse event, converts the value displayed by the control back to the Decimal type.

private:
   void BindControl()
   {
      // Create the binding first. The OrderAmount is typed as Decimal.
      Binding^ b = gcnew Binding(
         "Text",ds,"customers.custToOrders.OrderAmount" );
      // Add the delegates to the events.
      b->Format += gcnew ConvertEventHandler( this, &Form1::DecimalToCurrencyString );
      b->Parse += gcnew ConvertEventHandler( this, &Form1::CurrencyStringToDecimal );
      text1->DataBindings->Add( b );
   }

   void DecimalToCurrencyString( Object^ /*sender*/, ConvertEventArgs^ cevent )
   {
      // Check for the appropriate DesiredType.
      if ( cevent->DesiredType != String::typeid )
      {
         return;
      }

      // Use the ToString method to format the value as currency ("c").
      cevent->Value = ( (Decimal^)(cevent->Value) )->ToString( "c" );
   }

   void CurrencyStringToDecimal( Object^ /*sender*/, ConvertEventArgs^ cevent )
   {
      // Check for the appropriate DesiredType. 
      if ( cevent->DesiredType != Decimal::typeid )
      {
         return;
      }

      // Convert the string back to decimal using the static Parse method.
      cevent->Value = Decimal::Parse( cevent->Value->ToString(),
         NumberStyles::Currency, nullptr );
   }
private void BindControl()
{
   // Create the binding first. The OrderAmount is typed as Decimal.
   Binding b = new Binding
      ("Text", ds, "customers.custToOrders.OrderAmount");
   // Add the delegates to the events.
   b.Format += new ConvertEventHandler(DecimalToCurrencyString);
   b.Parse += new ConvertEventHandler(CurrencyStringToDecimal);
   text1.DataBindings.Add(b);
}

private void DecimalToCurrencyString(object sender, ConvertEventArgs cevent)
{
   // Check for the appropriate DesiredType.
   if(cevent.DesiredType != typeof(string)) return;

   // Use the ToString method to format the value as currency ("c").
   cevent.Value = ((decimal) cevent.Value).ToString("c");
}

private void CurrencyStringToDecimal(object sender, ConvertEventArgs cevent)
{
   // Check for the appropriate DesiredType. 
   if(cevent.DesiredType != typeof(decimal)) return;

   // Convert the string back to decimal using the static Parse method.
   cevent.Value = Decimal.Parse(cevent.Value.ToString(),
   NumberStyles.Currency, null);
}

Private Sub BindControl()
    ' Create the binding first. The OrderAmount is typed as Decimal.
    Dim b As New Binding("Text", ds, "customers.custToOrders.OrderAmount")
    ' Add the delegates to the events.
    AddHandler b.Format, AddressOf DecimalToCurrencyString
    AddHandler b.Parse, AddressOf CurrencyStringToDecimal
    text1.DataBindings.Add(b)
End Sub


Private Sub DecimalToCurrencyString(sender As Object, cevent As ConvertEventArgs)
    ' Check for the appropriate DesiredType.
    If cevent.DesiredType IsNot GetType(String) Then
        Return
    End If 
    ' Use the ToString method to format the value as currency ("c").
    cevent.Value = CDec(cevent.Value).ToString("c")
End Sub


Private Sub CurrencyStringToDecimal(sender As Object, cevent As ConvertEventArgs)
    ' Check for the appropriate DesiredType. 
    If cevent.DesiredType IsNot GetType(Decimal) Then
        Return
    End If 
    ' Convert the string back to decimal using the static Parse method.
  cevent.Value = Decimal.Parse(cevent.Value.ToString, _
  NumberStyles.Currency, nothing)

End Sub

Remarks

When you create a ControlEventArgs delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event handler delegates, see Handling and Raising Events.

Extension Methods
