PictureBox.BorderStyle Property

Indicates the border style for the control.

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

Public Property BorderStyle As BorderStyle

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.BorderStyle
One of the BorderStyle enumeration values. The default is None.


The value assigned is not one of the BorderStyle values.

You can specify this property at design time or run time.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the PictureBox and ListView controls. The PictureBox is initialized by setting the BorderStyle and SizeMode properties using the BorderStyle and PictureBoxSizeMode enumerations, respectively. The ListView is populated with pictures from the Sample Pictures directory. The ListView.GetItemAt method is used in when handling the MouseDown event of the ListView control to determine whether an item is selected. If an item is selected, the event handler displays the selected file by setting the Image property. The example requires that you have JPG files located in the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Pictures\Sample Pictures directory. To run this example, paste the code into a form and call the InitializePictureBox and PopulateListView methods in the form's constructor or Load event-handling method. Ensure all events are associated with their event-handling methods.

Private Sub PopulateListView()
    ListView1.Width = 270
    ListView1.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(10, 10)

    ' Declare and construct the ColumnHeader objects. 
    Dim header1, header2 As ColumnHeader
    header1 = New ColumnHeader
    header2 = New ColumnHeader

    ' Set the text, alignment and width for each column header.
    header1.Text = "File name"
    header1.TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment.Left
    header1.Width = 70

    header2.TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment.Left
    header2.Text = "Location"
    header2.Width = 200

    ' Add the headers to the ListView control.

    ' Specify that each item appears on a separate line.
    ListView1.View = View.Details

    ' Populate the ListView.Items property. 
    ' Set the directory to the sample picture directory. 
    Dim dirInfo As New System.IO.DirectoryInfo _
        ("C:\Documents and Settings\All Users" _
        & "\Documents\My Pictures\Sample Pictures")
    Dim file As System.IO.FileInfo

    ' Get the .jpg files from the directory 
    Dim files() As System.io.FileInfo = dirInfo.GetFiles("*.jpg")

    ' Add each file name and full name including path 
    ' to the ListView. 
    If (files IsNot Nothing) Then 
        For Each file In files
            Dim item As New ListViewItem(file.Name)
    End If 
End Sub 

Private Sub InitializePictureBox()
    PictureBox1 = New PictureBox

    ' Set the location and size of the PictureBox control. 
    Me.PictureBox1.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(70, 120)
    Me.PictureBox1.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(140, 140)
    Me.PictureBox1.TabStop = False 

    ' Set the SizeMode property to the StretchImage value.  This 
    ' will shrink or enlarge the image as needed to fit into 
    ' the PictureBox. 
    Me.PictureBox1.SizeMode = PictureBoxSizeMode.StretchImage

    ' Set the border style to a three-dimensional border. 
    Me.PictureBox1.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Fixed3D

    ' Add the PictureBox to the form. 

End Sub 

Private Sub ListView1_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As MouseEventArgs) Handles ListView1.MouseDown

    Dim selection As ListViewItem = ListView1.GetItemAt(e.X, e.Y)

    ' If the user selects an item in the ListView, display 
    ' the image in the PictureBox. 
    If (selection IsNot Nothing) Then
        PictureBox1.Image = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile _
    End If
