Control.Proxy (gb.qt4)

Property Proxy As Control

Return or set the "proxy" of a control.

When a control has a proxy, it will duplicate all mouse and keyboard events of the proxy for itself. I.e., if the proxy raises a KeyPress event, then the control will raise it too.

Moreover, the SetFocus and HasFocus methods will actually act on the proxy.

Use the proxy when you create a compound control based on a UserControl, with one of the child handling all mouse and keyboard events.

For example, the class ButtonBox, a TextBox and a Button, uses its inner TextBox as proxy. You see all events raised by the TextBox as if the ButtonBox has actually raised them.
