Public Custom Event MouseLeave 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 MouseLeave 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 ToolStripItem, such as a ToolStripButton or ToolStripMenuItem. Then name the instance ToolStripItem1 and ensure that the event handler is associated with the MouseLeave event.

private void ToolStripItem1_MouseLeave(Object sender, EventArgs e) {

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the ToolStripItem.MouseLeave event.");
Private Sub ToolStripItem1_MouseLeave(sender as Object, e as EventArgs) _ 
     Handles ToolStripItem1.MouseLeave

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the ToolStripItem.MouseLeave event.")

End Sub


Mouse events occur in the following order:

  1. MouseEnter

  2. MouseMove

  3. MouseHover or MouseDown

  4. MouseUp

  5. MouseLeave
