The following code example adds a shadow to a ListBox using overloaded operators.

This example is designed to be used with a Windows Form. To run this example, paste this code into a form and call the AddShadow method when handling the form's Paint event. Be sure that the form contains a ListBox named listBox1.

private void AddShadow(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    // Create two SizeF objects.
    SizeF shadowSize = listBox1.Size;
    SizeF addSize = new SizeF(10.5F, 20.8F);

    // Add them together and save the result in shadowSize.
    shadowSize = shadowSize + addSize;

    // Get the location of the ListBox and convert it to a PointF.
    PointF shadowLocation = listBox1.Location;

    // Add two points to get a new location.
    shadowLocation = shadowLocation + new Size(5, 5);

    // Create a rectangleF. 
    RectangleF rectFToFill = 
        new RectangleF(shadowLocation, shadowSize);

    // Create a custom brush using a semi-transparent color, and 
    // then fill in the rectangle.
    Color customColor = Color.FromArgb(50, Color.Gray);
    SolidBrush shadowBrush = new SolidBrush(customColor);
    e.Graphics.FillRectangles(shadowBrush, new RectangleF[]{rectFToFill});

    // Dispose of the brush.
    shadowBrush.Dispose();
}

private void AddShadow(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Create two SizeF objects.
    SizeF shadowSize = Size.op_Implicit(listBox1.get_Size());
    SizeF addSize = new SizeF(10.5F, 20.8F);

    // Add them together and save the result in shadowSize.
    shadowSize.set_Width(shadowSize.get_Width() + addSize.get_Width());
    shadowSize.set_Height(shadowSize.get_Height() + addSize.get_Height());

    // Get the location of the ListBox and convert it to a PointF.
    PointF shadowLocation = Point.op_Implicit(listBox1.get_Location());

    // Add two points to get a new location.
    shadowLocation.set_X(shadowLocation.get_X()  
        + (new Size(5, 5).get_Width()));
    shadowLocation.set_Y(shadowLocation.get_Y()  
        + (new Size(5, 5).get_Height()));
    
    // Create a rectangleF. 
    RectangleF rectFToFill = new RectangleF(shadowLocation, shadowSize);

    // Create a custom brush using a semi-transparent color, and 
    // then fill in the rectangle.
    Color customColor = Color.FromArgb(50, Color.get_Gray());
    SolidBrush shadowBrush = new SolidBrush(customColor);

    e.get_Graphics().FillRectangles(shadowBrush, 
        new RectangleF[] { rectFToFill });

    // Dispose of the brush.
    shadowBrush.Dispose();
} //AddShadow
