Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Apply events to all objects

  1. #1

    Apply events to all objects

    I want to apply some event to all objects in a WinForm. (I'll do WPF later, I want to do WinForms right now. )

    Event I want to do is keyPress. One way to do this would be to have a function, and all objects call this function from their own function and send in object, and event. Is there any other way? Is there any shortcut?

    What I'm trying to do is this. While I'm tying this post in a textbox, if I were to press "Ctrl+T", Firefox would open a new window. Basically, I want to add event only to the parent object, and all children would listen to that event (unless they have their own defined).

    (Delegate stuff is new, so I still need to look into it "deeply.")

    I don't know how it would be in WinForms, but it may be similar to WPF. Anyway, choose an event that tunnels. That ensures that events are listened starting from the parent before the children. I write about it here: http://blog.kirupa.com/?p=136

    Great, now even Kirupa is { facebooking | twittering }
