ToolStripItem.Paint ToolStripItem.Paint ToolStripItem.Paint ToolStripItem.Paint Event

Definition

Occurs when the item is redrawn.

public:
 event System::Windows::Forms::PaintEventHandler ^ Paint;
public event System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventHandler Paint;
member this.Paint : System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventHandler 
Public Custom Event Paint As PaintEventHandler 

Examples

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the Paint event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of a type that inherits from ToolStripItem, such as a ToolStripButton or ToolStripMenuItem. Then name the instance ToolStripItem1 and ensure that the event handler is associated with the Paint event.

private void ToolStripItem1_Paint(Object sender, PaintEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ClipRectangle", e.ClipRectangle );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Graphics", e.Graphics );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "Paint Event" );
}
Private Sub ToolStripItem1_Paint(sender as Object, e as PaintEventArgs) _ 
     Handles ToolStripItem1.Paint

    Dim messageBoxVB as New System.Text.StringBuilder()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ClipRectangle", e.ClipRectangle)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Graphics", e.Graphics)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    MessageBox.Show(messageBoxVB.ToString(),"Paint Event")

End Sub
