charp variable

private void listBox1_DragOver(object sender, DragEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.Data.GetDataPresent(DataFormats.FileDrop))
            {
                e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Copy;
            }
            else
            {
                e.Effect = DragDropEffects.None;
            }
        }



why we no need to declare  Type of  e.Effect      such as object e.Effect    or int  e.Effect

Hi
The variable "e" is already declared as an DragEventArgs in the method as a parameter (DragEventArgs e) this means that you can use the variable e anywhere inside the listBox1_DragDrop method.
