The following code example demonstrates the use of the ControlPaint.DrawBorder3D method and the Border3DStyle enumeration. To run this example paste the following code in a form that imports the System.Windows.Forms and System.Drawing namespaces. Ensure the form's Paint event is associated with the event-handling method in this example.

// Handle the Form's Paint event to draw a 3D three-dimensional 
// raised border just inside the border of the frame.
private void Form1_Paint(object sender, PaintEventArgs e)
{

	Rectangle borderRectangle = this.ClientRectangle;
	borderRectangle.Inflate(-10, -10);
	ControlPaint.DrawBorder3D(e.Graphics, borderRectangle, 
		Border3DStyle.Raised);
}
