Form.OnActivated(EventArgs) Method


Raises the Activated event.

 virtual void OnActivated(EventArgs ^ e);
protected virtual void OnActivated (EventArgs e);
abstract member OnActivated : EventArgs -> unit
override this.OnActivated : EventArgs -> unit
Protected Overridable Sub OnActivated (e As EventArgs)



An EventArgs that contains the event data.


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

The OnActivated method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. Overriding this method is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors

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