Public Property TickStyle As TickStyle

Property Value

TickStyle

One of the TickStyle values. The default is BottomRight.

Exceptions

The assigned value is not a valid TickStyle.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the TickStyle, Minimum, and Maximum properties and how to handle the ValueChanged event. To run the example, paste the following code into a form that contains a TrackBar control named TrackBar1 and a TextBox control named TextBox1. Call the InitializeTrackBar method from the form's constructor or Load event-handling method.

   //Declare a new TrackBar object.
internal:
   System::Windows::Forms::TrackBar^ TrackBar1;

   // Initalize the TrackBar and add it to the form.
private:
   void InitializeTrackBar()
   {
      this->TrackBar1 = gcnew System::Windows::Forms::TrackBar;
      TrackBar1->Location = System::Drawing::Point( 75, 30 );
      
      // Set the TickStyle property so there are ticks on both sides
      // of the TrackBar.
      TrackBar1->TickStyle = TickStyle::Both;
      
      // Set the minimum and maximum number of ticks.
      TrackBar1->Minimum = 10;
      TrackBar1->Maximum = 100;
      
      // Set the tick frequency to one tick every ten units.
      TrackBar1->TickFrequency = 10;
      
      // Associate the event-handling method with the 
      // ValueChanged event.
      TrackBar1->ValueChanged += gcnew System::EventHandler( this, &Form1::TrackBar1_ValueChanged );
      this->Controls->Add( this->TrackBar1 );
   }

   // Handle the TrackBar.ValueChanged event by calculating a value for
   // TextBox1 based on the TrackBar value.  
   void TrackBar1_ValueChanged( Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   {
      TextBox1->Text = (System::Math::Round( TrackBar1->Value / 10.0 )).ToString();
   }

//Declare a new TrackBar object.
internal System.Windows.Forms.TrackBar TrackBar1;

// Initalize the TrackBar and add it to the form.
private void InitializeTrackBar()
{
    this.TrackBar1 = new System.Windows.Forms.TrackBar();
    TrackBar1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(75, 30);

    // Set the TickStyle property so there are ticks on both sides
    // of the TrackBar.
    TrackBar1.TickStyle = TickStyle.Both;

    // Set the minimum and maximum number of ticks.
    TrackBar1.Minimum = 10;
    TrackBar1.Maximum = 100;

    // Set the tick frequency to one tick every ten units.
    TrackBar1.TickFrequency = 10;

    // Associate the event-handling method with the 
    // ValueChanged event.
    TrackBar1.ValueChanged += 
        new System.EventHandler(TrackBar1_ValueChanged);
    this.Controls.Add(this.TrackBar1);
}

// Handle the TrackBar.ValueChanged event by calculating a value for
// TextBox1 based on the TrackBar value.  
private void TrackBar1_ValueChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    TextBox1.Text = (System.Math.Round(TrackBar1.Value/10.0)).ToString();
}

'Declare a new TrackBar object.
Friend WithEvents TrackBar1 As System.Windows.Forms.TrackBar

' Initalize the TrackBar and add it to the form.
Private Sub InitializeTrackBar()
    Me.TrackBar1 = New System.Windows.Forms.TrackBar

    ' Set the TickStyle property so there are ticks on both sides
    ' of the TrackBar.
    TrackBar1.TickStyle = TickStyle.Both

    ' Set the minimum and maximum number of ticks.
    TrackBar1.Minimum = 10
    TrackBar1.Maximum = 100

    ' Set the tick frequency to one tick every ten units.
    TrackBar1.TickFrequency = 10

    TrackBar1.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(75, 30)
    Me.Controls.Add(Me.TrackBar1)
End Sub


' Handle the TrackBar.ValueChanged event by calculating a value for
' TextBox1 based on the TrackBar value.  
Private Sub TrackBar1_ValueChanged(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles TrackBar1.ValueChanged
    TextBox1.Text = System.Math.Round(TrackBar1.Value / 10)
End Sub

Remarks

You can use the TickStyle property to modify the manner in which the tick marks are displayed on the track bar.
