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 Sub 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
End Sub 'SetMyButtonProperties
