ToolboxBitmapAttribute Constructor (String)

Initializes a new ToolboxBitmapAttribute object with an image from a specified file.

Namespace:  System.Drawing
Assembly:  System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)

public ToolboxBitmapAttribute(
	string imageFile
)

Parameters

imageFile
Type: System.String
The name of a file that contains a 16 by 16 bitmap.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ToolboxBitmapAttribute constructor to set stop.bmp as the toolbox icon for the StopSignControl. This example assumes the existence of a 16-by-16-pixel bitmap named stop.bmp at c:\.


[System.Drawing.ToolboxBitmap("c:\\stop.bmp")]
public class StopSignControl:
    System.Windows.Forms.UserControl

{
    internal System.Windows.Forms.Label Label1;
    internal System.Windows.Forms.Button Button1;

    public StopSignControl() : base()
    {        
        this.Label1 = new System.Windows.Forms.Label();
        this.Button1 = new System.Windows.Forms.Button();

        this.Label1.Font = new System.Drawing.Font("Microsoft Sans Serif", 12.0F, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Regular, System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Point, ((byte) 0));

        this.Label1.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
        this.Label1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(24, 56);
        this.Label1.Name = "Label1";
        this.Label1.TabIndex = 0;
        this.Label1.Text = "Stop!";
        this.Label1.TextAlign = System.Drawing.ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter;

        this.Button1.Enabled = false;
        this.Button1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(56, 88);
        this.Button1.Name = "Button1";
        this.Button1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(40, 32);
        this.Button1.TabIndex = 1;
        this.Button1.Text = "stop";

        this.Controls.Add(this.Button1);
        this.Controls.Add(this.Label1);
        this.Name = "StopSignControl";

    }

    private void StopSignControl_MouseEnter(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    {

        Label1.Text.ToUpper();
        Label1.Font = new System.Drawing.Font(Label1.Font.FontFamily, 14.0F, 
	    System.Drawing.FontStyle.Bold);
        Button1.Enabled = true;
    }

    private void StopSignControl_MouseLeave(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    {

        Label1.Text.ToLower();
        Label1.Font = new System.Drawing.Font(Label1.Font.FontFamily, 12.0F, 
	    System.Drawing.FontStyle.Regular);
        Button1.Enabled = false;
    }

}
