VisualStyleElement.ListView.EmptyText Class

Provides a VisualStyleElement for the text area of a list view that contains no items. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms.VisualStyles
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
public static class EmptyText

The Normal property of the VisualStyleElement.ListView.EmptyText class returns a VisualStyleElement that represents the text area that accompanies an empty list view.

Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Windows Server 2003 Platform Note: Visual styles are supported only on these platforms.

The following code example demonstrates how to create a VisualStyleRenderer with the VisualStyleElement returned by the Normal property. To run this example, paste it into a Windows Form. Handle the form’s Paint event and call the DrawVisualStyleElementListViewEmptyText1 method from the Paint event-handling method, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

public void DrawVisualStyleElementListViewEmptyText1(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    if (VisualStyleRenderer.IsElementDefined(
        VisualStyleElement.ListView.EmptyText.Normal))
    {
        VisualStyleRenderer renderer =
             new VisualStyleRenderer(VisualStyleElement.ListView.EmptyText.Normal);
        Rectangle rectangle1 = new Rectangle(10, 50, 50, 50);
        renderer.DrawBackground(e.Graphics, rectangle1);
        e.Graphics.DrawString("VisualStyleElement.ListView.EmptyText.Normal",
             this.Font, Brushes.Black, new Point(10, 10));
    }
    else
        e.Graphics.DrawString("This element is not defined in the current visual style.",
             this.Font, Brushes.Black, new Point(10, 10));
}
