The System.Windows.Forms.VisualStyles namespace contains the following main classes:

  • VisualStyleElement is a foundation class for identifying any control or UI element supported by visual styles. In addition to VisualStyleElement itself, the System.Windows.Forms.VisualStyles namespace includes many nested classes of VisualStyleElement with static properties that return a VisualStyleElement for every state of a control, control part, or other UI element supported by visual styles. For example, the Pressed property of the VisualStyleElement.Button.PushButton class returns a VisualStyleElement that identifies a button in the pressed state with visual styles.

  • VisualStyleRenderer provides methods that draw and get information about each VisualStyleElement defined by the current visual style of the operating system. Information that can be retrieved about an element includes its default size, background type, and color definitions.

  • VisualStyleInformation provides a set of static properties that provide information about the current visual style of the operating system.

The System.Windows.Forms.VisualStyles namespace also includes a set of enumerations. Some of these enumerations, such as PushButtonState and ComboBoxState, provide state definitions for related visual style elements. Most of the other enumerations support VisualStyleRenderer methods that return information about a particular element. For example, the EnumProperty enumeration provides the possible argument values for the GetEnumValue method. Finally, the VisualStyleState enumeration provides values that define how visual styles are currently applied to the application.
