public:
 property System::Drawing::Rectangle ConnectedArea { System::Drawing::Rectangle get(); };
public System.Drawing.Rectangle ConnectedArea { get; }
member this.ConnectedArea : System.Drawing.Rectangle
Public ReadOnly Property ConnectedArea As Rectangle

Property Value

The Rectangle representing the overlap area between a ToolStripDropDown and its OwnerItem.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the ToolStripRenderer.RenderToolStripBackground 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 ToolStripRenderer, such as a ToolStripSystemRenderer or ToolStripProfessionalRenderer. Then name the instance ToolStripRenderer1 and ensure that the event handler is associated with the ToolStripRenderer.RenderToolStripBackground event.

private void ToolStripRenderer1_RenderToolStripBackground(Object sender, ToolStripRenderEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "AffectedBounds", e.AffectedBounds );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "BackColor", e.BackColor );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Graphics", e.Graphics );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ToolStrip", e.ToolStrip );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ConnectedArea", e.ConnectedArea );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "RenderToolStripBackground Event" );
}
Private Sub ToolStripRenderer1_RenderToolStripBackground(sender as Object, e as ToolStripRenderEventArgs) _ 
     Handles ToolStripRenderer1.RenderToolStripBackground

    Dim messageBoxVB as New System.Text.StringBuilder()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "AffectedBounds", e.AffectedBounds)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "BackColor", e.BackColor)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Graphics", e.Graphics)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ToolStrip", e.ToolStrip)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ConnectedArea", e.ConnectedArea)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    MessageBox.Show(messageBoxVB.ToString(),"RenderToolStripBackground Event")

End Sub

Remarks

If the ToolStrip is not a ToolStripDropDown or the ToolStripDropDown.OwnerItem is null, the ConnectedArea property returns an empty Rectangle.
