Control.ReflectMessage Method

Reflects the specified message to the control that is bound to the specified handle.

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

protected static bool ReflectMessage(
	IntPtr hWnd,
	ref Message m
)

Parameters

hWnd
Type: System.IntPtr

An IntPtr representing the handle of the control to reflect the message to.

m
Type: System.Windows.Forms.Message

A Message representing the Windows message to reflect.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the message was reflected; otherwise, false.

The ReflectMessage method is an infrastructure method and typically should not be called from your code.

If the hWnd parameter does not represent a valid control, the ReflectMessage method returns false.

Because Windows messages are returned to the top-level window, the ReflectMessage method is used to propagate the return message to the control that sent the message.
