Examples

The following code example displays the values of three properties in a label. The ThreeState property alternates between true and false with alternating clicks of the control and the CheckAlign alternates between the MiddleRight and MiddleLeft values of ContentAlignment. This example shows how the property values change as the ThreeState property changes and the control is checked. This example requires that a CheckBox, Label and Button have all been instantiated on a form and that the label is large enough to display three lines of text, as well as a reference to the System.Drawing namespace. This code should be called in the Click event handler of the control.
