Control.GetStyle Method

Retrieves the value of the specified control style bit for the control.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

'Declaration
Protected Function GetStyle ( _
	flag As ControlStyles _
) As Boolean

Parameters

flag
Type: System.Windows.Forms.ControlStyles

The ControlStyles bit to return the value from.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the specified control style bit is set to true; otherwise, false.

Control style bit flags are used to categorize supported behavior. A control can enable a style by calling the SetStyle method and passing in the appropriate ControlStyles bit and the Boolean value to set the bit to. To determine the value assigned to a specified ControlStyles bit, use the GetStyle method and pass in the ControlStyles member to evaluate.

The following code example returns the value of the double-buffering related style bits for a Form. This example returns true only if all the style bits are set to true.

Public Function DoubleBufferingEnabled() As Boolean 
   ' Get the value of the double-buffering style bits. 
   Return Me.GetStyle((ControlStyles.DoubleBuffer _
     Or ControlStyles.UserPaint _
     Or ControlStyles.AllPaintingInWmPaint))
End Function
