Examples

The following code example uses the DrawButton(Graphics, Rectangle, String, Font, Boolean, PushButtonState) method in a custom control's OnPaint method to draw a button in the state determined by the location of the mouse pointer. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ButtonRenderer class.
