The following code example uses the DrawHorizontalThumb method in a custom control's OnPaint method to draw a scroll box in the state determined by the location of the mouse pointer. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ScrollBarRenderer class.


// Draw the scroll bar in its normal state.
protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    base.OnPaint(e);

    // Visual styles are not enabled.
    if (!ScrollBarRenderer.IsSupported)
    {
        this.Parent.Text = "CustomScrollBar Disabled";
        return;
    }

    this.Parent.Text = "CustomScrollBar Enabled";

    // Draw the scroll bar track.
    ScrollBarRenderer.DrawRightHorizontalTrack(e.Graphics,
        ClientRectangle, ScrollBarState.Normal);

    // Draw the thumb and thumb grip in the current state.
    ScrollBarRenderer.DrawHorizontalThumb(e.Graphics,
        thumbRectangle, thumbState);
    ScrollBarRenderer.DrawHorizontalThumbGrip(e.Graphics,
        thumbRectangle, thumbState);

    // Draw the scroll arrows in the current state.
    ScrollBarRenderer.DrawArrowButton(e.Graphics,
            leftArrowRectangle, leftButtonState);
    ScrollBarRenderer.DrawArrowButton(e.Graphics,
            rightArrowRectangle, rightButtonState);

    // Draw a highlighted rectangle in the left side of the scroll 
    // bar track if the user has clicked between the left arrow 
    // and thumb.
    if (leftBarClicked)
    {
        clickedBarRectangle.X = thumbLeftLimit;
        clickedBarRectangle.Width = thumbRectangle.X - thumbLeftLimit;
        ScrollBarRenderer.DrawLeftHorizontalTrack(e.Graphics,
            clickedBarRectangle, ScrollBarState.Pressed);
    }

    // Draw a highlighted rectangle in the right side of the scroll 
    // bar track if the user has clicked between the right arrow 
    // and thumb.
    else if (rightBarClicked)
    {
        clickedBarRectangle.X =
            thumbRectangle.X + thumbRectangle.Width;
        clickedBarRectangle.Width =
            thumbRightLimitRight - clickedBarRectangle.X;
        ScrollBarRenderer.DrawRightHorizontalTrack(e.Graphics,
            clickedBarRectangle, ScrollBarState.Pressed);
    }
}
