Event Reference??

Posted on 2005-04-22
Last Modified: 2010-04-23
Is there any reference material, on Microsoft's site or something, that has all of the different EventTypes, like:

    Private Sub DocTypeDataGrid_DoubleClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DocTypeDataGrid.DoubleClick

    Private Sub frmScanDocument_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

I know there are lot of them, and I am curious what they are, and what they do?

    Hi chrisryhal,

    The built-in help has all the information. Plus the help is duplicated at

    If you go to the help index tab in .Net, type in the name of the class you want the events for, and choose the events item in the index, you should get all the information you need.

    Hope this helps,

    What is wrong with the help in visual studio combined with the objectbrowser ?

    I haven't seen any, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.  I just think that the scope for this type of documentation is way too large.

    Specific event descriptions:

    DataGrid.DoubleClick:  Fires when the user double-clicks on the control.

    Form_Load:  Fires when the form is initially loaded, and before it is shown.

    I am still getting used to VB.NET.  I was unaware of the Object Viewer.  For months now, I have been doing it manually.  Thanks.
