ListControl.FormatStringChanged Event


Occurs when value of the FormatString property changes.

 event EventHandler ^ FormatStringChanged;
public event EventHandler FormatStringChanged;
member this.FormatStringChanged : EventHandler 
Public Custom Event FormatStringChanged As EventHandler 

Event Type



The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the FormatStringChanged event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of a type that inherits from ListControl, such as a ComboBox or ListBox. Then name the instance ListControl1 and ensure that the event handler is associated with the FormatStringChanged event.

private void ListControl1_FormatStringChanged(Object sender, EventArgs e) {

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the ListControl.FormatStringChanged event.");
Private Sub ListControl1_FormatStringChanged(sender as Object, e as EventArgs) _ 
     Handles ListControl1.FormatStringChanged

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the ListControl.FormatStringChanged event.")

End Sub
