Rant: OnXXX() .NET SDK "Help"
So I'm looking up
OnActivate() so I can get a better understanding of when this method is invoked. This is what the docs tell me:
Called when the form is activated.
Oh, gee, that's helpful. Maybe the help for
OnLoad() is better:
Raises the Load event.
Man, that's a boatload of assistance! I think I'm on to something - what does
OnResize() say? Wait for it...
This member overrides Control.OnResize.
Fine, so I jump to
Raises the Resize event.
There are some sections in the SDK that are very helpful, but I find this section lacking. Even a one- or two-sentence description on when
OnLoad() is invoked would be so much better than, "Raises the Load event." And please don't post comments about what these events do - my rant is targeted towards the quality of the help for all of the
OnXXX() methods in WinForm controls, rather than what they actually do.
