Sets a specified ControlStyles flag to either true or false.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
Control style bit flags are used to categorize supported behavior. A control can enable a style by calling the method and passing in the appropriate ControlStyles bit (or bits) and the Boolean value to set the bit(s) to. To determine the value assigned to a specified ControlStyles bit, use the GetStyle method and pass in the ControlStyles member to evaluate.
Setting the control style bits can substantially change the behavior of the control. Review the ControlStyles enumeration documentation to understand the effects of changing the control style bits before calling the method.
The following code example enables double-buffering on a Form and updates the styles to reflect the changes.
Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 (Server Core Role not supported), Windows Server 2008 R2 (Server Core Role supported with SP1 or later; Itanium not supported)
