This code example is part of a larger example provided for the System.Windows.Forms.VisualStyles.VisualStyleState enumeration.

private:
    void UpdateButton_Click(Object^ sender, EventArgs^ e)
    {
        if (applyToClient->Checked)
        {
            Application::VisualStyleState =
                VisualStyleState::ClientAreaEnabled;
        }
        else if (applyToNonClient->Checked)
        {
            Application::VisualStyleState =
                VisualStyleState::NonClientAreaEnabled;
        }
        else if (applyToAll->Checked)
        {
            Application::VisualStyleState =
                VisualStyleState::ClientAndNonClientAreasEnabled;
        }
        else if (disableStyles->Checked)
        {
            Application::VisualStyleState =
                VisualStyleState::NoneEnabled;
        }

        // Repaint the form and all child controls.
        this->Invalidate(true);
    }
void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
	if (radioButton1.Checked)
	{
		Application.VisualStyleState =
			VisualStyleState.ClientAreaEnabled;
	}
	else if (radioButton2.Checked)
	{
		Application.VisualStyleState =
			VisualStyleState.NonClientAreaEnabled;
	}
	else if (radioButton3.Checked)
	{
		Application.VisualStyleState =
			VisualStyleState.ClientAndNonClientAreasEnabled;
	}
	else if (radioButton4.Checked)
	{
		Application.VisualStyleState =
			VisualStyleState.NoneEnabled;
	}

	// Repaint the form and all child controls.
	this.Invalidate(true);
}
Sub button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) _
    Handles button1.Click

    If radioButton1.Checked Then
        Application.VisualStyleState = _
            VisualStyleState.ClientAreaEnabled
    ElseIf radioButton2.Checked Then
        Application.VisualStyleState = _
            VisualStyleState.NonClientAreaEnabled
    ElseIf radioButton3.Checked Then
        Application.VisualStyleState = _
            VisualStyleState.ClientAndNonClientAreasEnabled
    ElseIf radioButton4.Checked Then
        Application.VisualStyleState = _
            VisualStyleState.NoneEnabled
    End If

    ' Repaint the form and all child controls.
    Me.Invalidate(True)
End Sub

Remarks

This VisualStyleState property determines whether visual styles are enabled in client areas or nonclient areas of application windows. Generally, this property should be set within the main form's constructor or Load event handler.
