Control.OnValidating Method (CancelEventArgs)


Raises the Validating event.

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

protected virtual void OnValidating(
	CancelEventArgs e


Type: System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs

A CancelEventArgs that contains the event data.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Handling and Raising Events.

The OnValidating method also enables derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors:

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