IButtonControl IButtonControl IButtonControl IButtonControl Interface

Definition

Allows a control to act like a button on a form.

public interface class IButtonControl
public interface IButtonControl
type IButtonControl = interface
Public Interface IButtonControl
Derived

Examples

The following example inherits from the ButtonBase class and implements the IButtonControl interface. Implementation is added to the DialogResult property and the NotifyDefault and PerformClick methods.

#using <System.dll>
#using <System.Drawing.dll>
#using <System.Windows.Forms.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Windows::Forms;
using namespace System::Drawing;

public ref class MyButton: public ButtonBase, public IButtonControl
{
private:
   System::Windows::Forms::DialogResult myDialogResult;

public:
   MyButton()
   {
      // Make the button White and a Popup style
      // so it can be distinguished on the form.
      this->FlatStyle = ::FlatStyle::Popup;
      this->BackColor = Color::White;
   }

   property System::Windows::Forms::DialogResult DialogResult 
   {
      // Add implementation to the IButtonControl.DialogResult property.
      virtual System::Windows::Forms::DialogResult get()
      {
         return this->myDialogResult;
      }

      virtual void set( System::Windows::Forms::DialogResult value )
      {
         if ( Enum::IsDefined( System::Windows::Forms::DialogResult::typeid, value ) )
         {
            this->myDialogResult = value;
         }
      }
   }

   // Add implementation to the IButtonControl.NotifyDefault method.
   virtual void NotifyDefault( bool value )
   {
      if ( this->IsDefault != value )
      {
         this->IsDefault = value;
      }
   }

   // Add implementation to the IButtonControl.PerformClick method.
   virtual void PerformClick()
   {
      if ( this->CanSelect )
      {
         this->OnClick( EventArgs::Empty );
      }
   }
};

public class MyButton : ButtonBase, IButtonControl
{
	private DialogResult myDialogResult;

	public MyButton()
	{
		// Make the button White and a Popup style
		// so it can be distinguished on the form.
		this.FlatStyle = FlatStyle.Popup;
		this.BackColor = Color.White;
	}
		
	// Add implementation to the IButtonControl.DialogResult property.

	{

		{
			this.IsDefault = value;
		}
	}

	// Add implementation to the IButtonControl.PerformClick method.
	public void PerformClick()
	{
		if(this.CanSelect)
		{
			this.OnClick(EventArgs.Empty);
		}
	}
}

Remarks

An example of where this interface might be implemented is default and cancel button processing. Default buttons are notified when an unprocessed ENTER key is entered for a form, just like a dialog box would be closed. Similarly, cancel buttons are notified whenever an unprocessed ESC key is entered on a form, much like a dialog box would be dismissed.

Notes to Implementers

Implement this interface in classes that act as button controls. The members of this interface will provide basic button functionality, such as providing a DialogResult to the parent form or the ability to perform a Click event, or acting as the default button of a form.

Properties

DialogResult DialogResult DialogResult DialogResult

Gets or sets the value returned to the parent form when the button is clicked.

Methods

NotifyDefault(Boolean) NotifyDefault(Boolean) NotifyDefault(Boolean) NotifyDefault(Boolean)

Notifies a control that it is the default button so that its appearance and behavior is adjusted accordingly.

PerformClick() PerformClick() PerformClick() PerformClick()

Generates a Click event for the control.
