how to determine what events are being raised?
Posted on 2004-09-20
Is there a simple way, or a way at all, in Visual Studio .NET to either see exactly what is happening in response to a user event, or to otherwise return the name of the event being handled? For example, the windows.forms datagrid control has many events. But handling the ones I want to respond to, like Click, doesn't always seem to work as planned. And sometimes it is unclear to me what, if any, events will handle things like the focus moving (by tab key, for instance), to a different cell in the grid. I would like to see all the events that are being fired so that I can find the best place to put my code that needs to get triggered. I guess I could just put a debugger in every event and see which ones get hit, but I'm hoping that microsoft may have provided a way for this to happen automatically.
Is this pie in the sky?
