TypeValidationEventArgs.ValidatingType TypeValidationEventArgs.ValidatingType TypeValidationEventArgs.ValidatingType TypeValidationEventArgs.ValidatingType Property

Definition

Gets the type that the formatted input string is being validated against.

public:
 property Type ^ ValidatingType { Type ^ get(); };
public Type ValidatingType { get; }
member this.ValidatingType : Type
Public ReadOnly Property ValidatingType As Type

Property Value

The target Type of the conversion process. This should never be null.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the MaskedTextBox.TypeValidationCompleted 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 type MaskedTextBox named MaskedTextBox1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the MaskedTextBox.TypeValidationCompleted event.

private void MaskedTextBox1_TypeValidationCompleted(Object sender, TypeValidationEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Cancel", e.Cancel );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "IsValidInput", e.IsValidInput );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Message", e.Message );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ReturnValue", e.ReturnValue );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ValidatingType", e.ValidatingType );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "TypeValidationCompleted Event" );
}
Private Sub MaskedTextBox1_TypeValidationCompleted(sender as Object, e as TypeValidationEventArgs) _ 
     Handles MaskedTextBox1.TypeValidationCompleted

    Dim messageBoxVB as New System.Text.StringBuilder()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Cancel", e.Cancel)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "IsValidInput", e.IsValidInput)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Message", e.Message)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ReturnValue", e.ReturnValue)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ValidatingType", e.ValidatingType)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    MessageBox.Show(messageBoxVB.ToString(),"TypeValidationCompleted Event")

End Sub

Remarks

The validation process only occurs if MaskedTextBox.ValidatingType property of the MaskedTextBox class is not null. The ValidatingType property references the same type, which represents the target type of the conversion process.
