ToolStripItem.ContentRectangle ToolStripItem.ContentRectangle ToolStripItem.ContentRectangle ToolStripItem.ContentRectangle Property

Definition

Gets the area where content, such as text and icons, can be placed within a ToolStripItem without overwriting background borders.

public:
 property System::Drawing::Rectangle ContentRectangle { System::Drawing::Rectangle get(); };
[System.ComponentModel.Browsable(false)]
public System.Drawing.Rectangle ContentRectangle { get; }
member this.ContentRectangle : System.Drawing.Rectangle
Public ReadOnly Property ContentRectangle As Rectangle

Property Value

A Rectangle containing four integers that represent the location and size of ToolStripItem contents, excluding its border.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ContentRectangle property for custom rendering. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ToolStripItem class.

// This utility method computes the layout of the 
// RolloverItem control's image area and the text area.
// For brevity, only the following settings are 
// supported:
//
// ToolStripTextDirection.Horizontal
// TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText 
// TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText
// 
// It would not be difficult to support vertical text
// directions and other image/text relationships.
private void ComputeImageAndTextLayout()
{
    Rectangle cr = base.ContentRectangle;
    Image img = base.Owner.ImageList.Images[base.ImageKey];

    // Compute the center of the item's ContentRectangle.
    int centerY = (cr.Height - img.Height) / 2;

    // Find the dimensions of the image and the text 
    // areas of the item. The text occupies the space 
    // not filled by the image.

        base.TextDirection == ToolStripTextDirection.Horizontal)
