The following code example uses the derived class, Button and sets some of its common properties. The result will be a flat button with text on the left and an image on the right. This code requires that you have a bitmap image named MyBitMap.bmp stored in the C:\Graphics directory, and that a reference to the System.Drawing namespace is included.

private void SetMyButtonProperties()
 {
    // Assign an image to the button.
    button1.Image = Image.FromFile("C:\\Graphics\\MyBitmap.bmp");
    // Align the image and text on the button.
    button1.ImageAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleRight;    
    button1.TextAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleLeft;
    // Give the button a flat appearance.
    button1.FlatStyle = FlatStyle.Flat;
 }
 

private void SetMyButtonProperties()
{
    // Assign an image to the button.
    button1.set_Image(Image.FromFile("C:\\Graphics\\MyBitmap.bmp"));

    // Align the image and text on the button.
    button1.set_ImageAlign(ContentAlignment.MiddleRight);
    button1.set_TextAlign(ContentAlignment.MiddleLeft);

    // Give the button a flat appearance.
    button1.set_FlatStyle(FlatStyle.Flat);
} //SetMyButtonProperties

private function SetMyButtonProperties()
 {
    // Assign an image to the button.
    button1.Image = Image.FromFile("C:\\Graphics\\MyBitmap.bmp");
    // Align the image and text on the button.
    button1.ImageAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleRight;    
    button1.TextAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleLeft;
    // Give the button a flat appearance.
    button1.FlatStyle = FlatStyle.Flat;
