Windows Forms Popup (PopupControlContainer) Overview

28 Apr 20211 minute to read

A PopupControlContainer is a panel-derived control that allows end-users to populate it with child controls and finally associate the same with a parent control. By default, it’s hidden, and it can be brought into existence when performing events like mouse-down, mouse-up, etc… over the parent control.

Key Features

  • Auto Scroll - Scrollbar will be automatically shown when its items are populated beyond its default size.

  • Auto Close - The pop-up will be hidden when user clicks anywhere outside the container.

  • Keyboard Navigation - By using keyboard dialog keys like Enter, Tab, Esc, etc… we can close the popup.

  • RTL - RTL is used to display the content from right to left.
