public: virtual System::Drawing::Size GetPreferredSize(System::Drawing::Size proposedSize);
public virtual System.Drawing.Size GetPreferredSize (System.Drawing.Size proposedSize);
abstract member GetPreferredSize : System.Drawing.Size -> System.Drawing.Size override this.GetPreferredSize : System.Drawing.Size -> System.Drawing.Size
Public Overridable Function GetPreferredSize (proposedSize As Size) As Size
The custom-sized area for a control.
An ordered pair of type Size representing the width and height of a rectangle.
The behavior of GetPreferredSize differs by control. The LayoutEngine might be unable to assign the returned size to the control. You can return a size larger than the constraints indicated in the
proposedSize parameter, but
proposedSize should decrease as the constraint decreases. For example,
GetPreferredSize(new Size(100, 0)) should not be wider than
GetPreferredSize(new Size(200, 0)). The exception is a
proposedSize of 0 or
Size.Empty, which are defined as unconstrained.
