Control.GetStyle(ControlStyles) Control.GetStyle(ControlStyles) Control.GetStyle(ControlStyles) Control.GetStyle(ControlStyles) Method

Definition

Retrieves the value of the specified control style bit for the control.

protected:
 bool GetStyle(System::Windows::Forms::ControlStyles flag);
protected bool GetStyle (System.Windows.Forms.ControlStyles flag);
member this.GetStyle : System.Windows.Forms.ControlStyles -> bool
Protected Function GetStyle (flag As ControlStyles) As Boolean

Parameters

flag
ControlStyles ControlStyles ControlStyles ControlStyles

The ControlStyles bit to return the value from.

Returns

true if the specified control style bit is set to true; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following code example returns the value of the double-buffering related style bits for a Form. This example returns true only if all the style bits are set to true.

public:
   bool DoubleBufferingEnabled()
   {
      
      // Get the value of the double-buffering style bits.
      return this->GetStyle( static_cast<ControlStyles>(ControlStyles::DoubleBuffer | ControlStyles::UserPaint | ControlStyles::AllPaintingInWmPaint) );
   }
public bool DoubleBufferingEnabled()
{
   // Get the value of the double-buffering style bits.
   return this.GetStyle(ControlStyles.DoubleBuffer | 
      ControlStyles.UserPaint | 
      ControlStyles.AllPaintingInWmPaint);
}
Public Function DoubleBufferingEnabled() As Boolean
   ' Get the value of the double-buffering style bits.
   Return Me.GetStyle((ControlStyles.DoubleBuffer _
     Or ControlStyles.UserPaint _
     Or ControlStyles.AllPaintingInWmPaint))
End Function

Remarks

Control style bit flags are used to categorize supported behavior. A control can enable a style by calling the SetStyle method and passing in the appropriate ControlStyles bit and the Boolean value to set the bit to. To determine the value assigned to a specified ControlStyles bit, use the GetStyle method and pass in the ControlStyles member to evaluate.
