Examples

The following code example uses the DrawParentBackground method to paint over an area of a custom control. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ButtonRenderer class.

    // Draw the large or small button, depending on the current state.
protected:
    virtual void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs^ e) override
    {
        __super::OnPaint(e);

        // Draw the smaller pressed button image
        if (state == PushButtonState::Pressed)
        {
            // Set the background color to the parent if visual styles
            // are disabled, because DrawParentBackground will only paint
            // over the control background if visual styles are enabled.
            if (Application::RenderWithVisualStyles)
            {
                this->BackColor = Color::Azure;
            }
            else
            {
                this->BackColor = this->Parent->BackColor;
            }


            // If you comment out the call to DrawParentBackground,
            // the background of the control will still be visible
            // outside the pressed button, if visual styles are enabled.
            ButtonRenderer::DrawParentBackground(e->Graphics,
                ClientRectangle, this);
