PanelContainerDesigner.FrameStyle Property


Gets the styles of the associated Panel control.

 virtual property System::Web::UI::WebControls::Style ^ FrameStyle { System::Web::UI::WebControls::Style ^ get(); };
public override System.Web.UI.WebControls.Style FrameStyle { get; }
member this.FrameStyle : System.Web.UI.WebControls.Style
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property FrameStyle As Style

Property Value

A Style object that contains the design-time styles for the associated Panel control.


The following code example shows how to override the FrameStyle property in a class that is inherited from the PanelContainerDesigner class to change the appearance of a control that is derived from the Panel class at design time. The example defines a design-time border style for the associated control.

// Provide a design-time border style for the panel.
public override Style FrameStyle
        Style styleOfFrame = base.FrameStyle;

        // If no border style is defined, define one.
        if (styleOfFrame.BorderStyle == BorderStyle.NotSet ||
            styleOfFrame.BorderStyle == BorderStyle.None)
            styleOfFrame.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Outset;

        return styleOfFrame;
} // FrameStyle
' Provide a design-time border style for the panel.
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property FrameStyle() As Style
        Dim styleOfFrame As Style = MyBase.FrameStyle

        ' If no border style is defined, define one.
        If (styleOfFrame.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.NotSet Or _
            styleOfFrame.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.None) Then
            styleOfFrame.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Outset
        End If

        Return styleOfFrame
    End Get
End Property ' FrameStyle


If the FrameCaption property is an empty string (""), the FrameStyle property returns an empty Style object. Otherwise, the FrameStyle property returns a default Style object that is generated by the ContainerControlDesigner.FrameStyle base property.
