Event Data

The SymbolFormShowing event's data class is SymbolFormShowingEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
DialogResult Gets or sets the return value of a dialog box. Inherited from ShowFormEventArgs.
Handled Gets or sets whether an event was handled. If it was handled, the default actions are not required. Inherited from ShowFormEventArgs.
Parent Gets or sets a parent of the form being shown. Inherited from ShowFormEventArgs.

Handle the SymbolFormShowing event to perform any actions prior to the Symbol dialog being shown. For example, you can substitute the standard dialog with a custom one and set the ShowFormEventArgs.Handled property to true, to prevent default event handling.
