Notes to Implementers:

If you inherit from the CatalogPartChrome class, you can optionally override the CreateCatalogPartChromeStyle method, and merge the style information from the base method with custom style attributes that you want to add. For a demonstration, see the Example section.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the CreateCatalogPartChromeStyle method to change the background color of the catalog part control. For the full code required to run the example, including the Web page to host these controls, see the Example section of the CatalogPartChrome class overview.

protected override Style  CreateCatalogPartChromeStyle(CatalogPart catalogPart, PartChromeType chromeType)
    Style catalogStyle = base.CreateCatalogPartChromeStyle(catalogPart, chromeType);
    catalogStyle.BackColor = Color.Bisque;
    return catalogStyle;
