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

Gets or sets a value indicating whether this control should redraw its surface using a secondary buffer to reduce or prevent flicker.

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

'Declaration
Protected Overridable Property DoubleBuffered As Boolean
'Usage
Dim value As Boolean

value = Me.DoubleBuffered

Me.DoubleBuffered = value
/** @property */
protected boolean get_DoubleBuffered ()

/** @property */
protected void set_DoubleBuffered (boolean value)

protected function get DoubleBuffered () : boolean

protected function set DoubleBuffered (value : boolean)

Property Value

true if the surface of the control should be drawn using double buffering; otherwise, false.

Buffered graphics can reduce or eliminate flicker that is caused by progressive redrawing of parts of a displayed surface. Buffered graphics require that the updated graphics data is first written to a buffer. The data in the graphics buffer is then quickly written to displayed surface memory. The relatively quick switch of the displayed graphics memory typically reduces the flicker that can otherwise occur.

NoteNote

DoubleBuffered is not a bindable property.
