RadioButtonRenderer Class

Note: This class is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Provides methods used to render an option button control (also known as a radio button) with or without visual styles. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public sealed class RadioButtonRenderer
public final class RadioButtonRenderer
public final class RadioButtonRenderer

The RadioButtonRenderer class provides a set of static methods that can be used to render an option button control. Rendering a control refers to drawing the user interface of a control. To draw an option button, use one of the DrawRadioButton methods. These methods provide a variety of options, such as drawing text or an image with the option button.

If visual styles are enabled in the operating system and visual styles are applied to the current application, DrawRadioButton will draw the option button with the current visual style. Otherwise, DrawRadioButton will draw the option button with the classic Windows style. This is useful if you are drawing a custom control that should automatically match the current visual style setting of the operating system.

This class wraps the functionality of a System.Windows.Forms.VisualStyles.VisualStyleRenderer that is set to one of the elements exposed by the System.Windows.Forms.VisualStyles.VisualStyleElement.Button.RadioButton class. For more information, see Rendering Controls with Visual Styles.

Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Windows Server 2003 Platform Note: Visual styles are supported only on these platforms.

The following code example demonstrates how to write a custom control that uses the DrawRadioButton method to draw an option button that responds to mouse clicks.

using System;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Windows.Forms.VisualStyles;

namespace RadioButtonRendererSample
{
    class Form1 : Form
    {
        Button button1 = new Button();
        public Form1()
            : base()
        {
            CustomRadioButton RadioButton1 = new CustomRadioButton();
          
            button1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(175, 231);
            button1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(105, 23);
            button1.Text = "Toggle Style";
            button1.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.button1_Click);
            Controls.Add(RadioButton1);
            Controls.Add(button1);

            if (Application.RenderWithVisualStyles)
                this.Text = "Visual Styles Enabled";
            else

        }

        {
            // If you do not call EnableVisualStyles below, then 
            // RadioButtonRenderer.DrawRadioButton automatically detects 
            // this and draws the radio button without visual styles.
            Application.EnableVisualStyles();
            Application.Run(new Form1());
        }
