Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the GetPoint method in a custom control to get the offset of the window Close button in relation to the upper-right corner of the title bar. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the VisualStyleRenderer class overview.

    // Get the sizes and offsets for the window parts as specified
    // by the visual style.
private:
    void GetPartDetails()
    {
        // Do nothing further if visual styles are not enabled.
        if (!Application::RenderWithVisualStyles)
        {
            return;
        }

        Graphics^ g = this->CreateGraphics();

        // Get the size and offset of the close button.
        if (SetRenderer(windowElements["windowClose"]))
        {
            closeButtonSize =
                renderer->GetPartSize(g, ThemeSizeType::True);
            closeButtonOffset =
                renderer->GetPoint(PointProperty::Offset);
        }

        // Get the height of the window caption.
        if (SetRenderer(windowElements["windowCaption"]))
        {
            captionHeight = renderer->GetPartSize(g,
                ThemeSizeType::True).Height;
        }

        // Get the thickness of the left, bottom,
        // and right window frame.

Remarks

Visual styles use a set of point values to describe some properties of the elements defined by a style. These properties are encapsulated by the PointProperty values.
