VisualStyleElement.ExplorerBar.SpecialGroupBackground Class

Note: This class is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public static class SpecialGroupBackground
public final class SpecialGroupBackground
public final class SpecialGroupBackground

The Normal property of the VisualStyleElement.ExplorerBar.SpecialGroupBackground class gets a VisualStyleElement that represents the background of a special group of items in the Explorer Bar, such as the Music Tasks group in Windows Explorer.

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 DrawVisualStyleElementExplorerBarSpecialGroupBackground1 method from the Paint event-handling method, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

public void DrawVisualStyleElementExplorerBarSpecialGroupBackground1(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    if (VisualStyleRenderer.IsElementDefined(
        VisualStyleElement.ExplorerBar.SpecialGroupBackground.Normal))
    {
        VisualStyleRenderer renderer =
             new VisualStyleRenderer(VisualStyleElement.ExplorerBar.SpecialGroupBackground.Normal);
        Rectangle rectangle1 = new Rectangle(10, 50, 50, 50);
        renderer.DrawBackground(e.Graphics, rectangle1);
        e.Graphics.DrawString("VisualStyleElement.ExplorerBar.SpecialGroupBackground.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));
}
