Control.OnTextInputStart Method

Called before the TextInputStart event occurs.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)

Syntax

'Declaration
Protected Overridable Sub OnTextInputStart ( _
    e As TextCompositionEventArgs _
)
protected virtual void OnTextInputStart(
    TextCompositionEventArgs e
)

Parameters

Remarks

The OnTextInputStart method is called before any event handler for the TextInput event is called. This method allows derived classes to handle the TextInputStart event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

This implementation does not change the handled state (the Handled property) of the TextInputStart event data.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding OnTextInputStart in a derived class, be sure to call the base class’s OnTextInputStart method so that registered delegates receive the event.
