Use the members of this enumeration when calling the DrawBorder3D method of the ControlPaint class.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the ControlPaint.DrawBorder3D method and the Border3DStyle enumeration. To run this example paste the following code in a form that imports the System.Windows.Forms and System.Drawing namespaces. Ensure the form's Paint event is associated with the event-handling method in this example.

// Handle the Form's Paint event to draw a 3D three-dimensional 
// raised border just inside the border of the frame.
private void Form1_Paint(object sender, PaintEventArgs e)
{

    Rectangle borderRectangle = this.ClientRectangle;
    borderRectangle.Inflate(-10, -10);
    ControlPaint.DrawBorder3D(e.Graphics, borderRectangle, 
        Border3DStyle.Raised);
}

// Handle the Form's Paint event to draw a 3D three-dimensional 
// raised border just inside the border of the frame.
private void Form1_Paint(Object sender, PaintEventArgs e)
{
    Rectangle borderRectangle = this.get_ClientRectangle();
    borderRectangle.Inflate(-10, -10);
    ControlPaint.DrawBorder3D(e.get_Graphics(), borderRectangle, 
        Border3DStyle.Raised);
} //Form1_Paint
