TrackBar.Scroll TrackBar.Scroll TrackBar.Scroll TrackBar.Scroll Event

Definition

Occurs when either a mouse or keyboard action moves the scroll box.

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

Examples

The following code example shows how to implement the Scroll event to modify information labels on a form, based on the scrolling of the scroll box on a track bar. The example requires a Form with three track bars and three labels placed on it.

void showColorValueLabels()
{
   label1->Text = String::Format( "Red value is : {0}", trackBar1->Value );
   label3->Text = String::Format( "Green Value is : {0}", trackBar2->Value );
   label2->Text = String::Format( "Blue Value is : {0}", trackBar3->Value );
}

void trackBar_Scroll( Object^ sender, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
{
   System::Windows::Forms::TrackBar^ myTB;
   myTB = dynamic_cast<System::Windows::Forms::TrackBar^>(sender);
   panel1->BackColor = Color::FromArgb( trackBar1->Value, trackBar2->Value, trackBar3->Value );
   myTB->Text = String::Format( "Value is {0}", myTB->Value );
   showColorValueLabels();
}

private void showColorValueLabels()
{
    label1.Text = "Red value is : " + trackBar1.Value.ToString();
    label3.Text = "Green Value is : " + trackBar2.Value.ToString();
    label2.Text = "Blue Value is : " + trackBar3.Value.ToString();
}
private void trackBar_Scroll(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    System.Windows.Forms.TrackBar myTB;
    myTB = (System.Windows.Forms.TrackBar) sender ;
    panel1.BackColor = Color.FromArgb(trackBar1.Value,trackBar2.Value,trackBar3.Value);
    myTB.Text = "Value is " + myTB.Value.ToString();
    showColorValueLabels();
}
Private Sub showColorValueLabels()
    label1.Text = "Red value is : " & trackBar1.Value.ToString()
    label3.Text = "Green Value is : " & trackBar2.Value.ToString()
    label2.Text = "Blue Value is : " & trackBar3.Value.ToString()
End Sub

Private Sub trackBar_Scroll(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles trackBar1.Scroll, trackBar2.Scroll, trackBar3.Scroll
    Dim myTB As System.Windows.Forms.TrackBar
    myTB = sender
    panel1.BackColor = Color.FromArgb(trackBar1.Value, trackBar2.Value, trackBar3.Value)
    myTB.Text = "Value is " & myTB.Value.ToString()
    showColorValueLabels()
End Sub

The following code example displays a form that contains a TrackBar control and a TextBox control. The example demonstrates setting the Maximum, TickFrequency, LargeChange, and SmallChange properties and handling the Scroll event. The TextBox contents are updated to the Value property value when the Scroll event occurs.

      // TextBox for TrackBar::Value update.
      this->textBox1->Location = System::Drawing::Point( 240, 16 );
      this->textBox1->Size = System::Drawing::Size( 48, 20 );
      
      // Set up how the form should be displayed and add the controls to the form.

      this->trackBar1->Size = System::Drawing::Size( 224, 45 );
      this->trackBar1->Scroll += gcnew System::EventHandler( this, &Form1::trackBar1_Scroll );
      
      // The Maximum property sets the value of the track bar when
      // the slider is all the way to the right.
      trackBar1->Maximum = 30;
      
      // The TickFrequency property establishes how many positions
      // are between each tick-mark.
      trackBar1->TickFrequency = 5;
      
      // The LargeChange property sets how many positions to move
      // if the bar is clicked on either side of the slider.
      trackBar1->LargeChange = 3;
      
      // The SmallChange property sets how many positions to move
      // if the keyboard arrows are used to move the slider.
      trackBar1->SmallChange = 2;
   }
