Control.GetStyle Method

Retrieves the value of the specified control style bit for the control.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

Protected Function GetStyle ( _
	flag As ControlStyles _
) As Boolean
Dim flag As ControlStyles
Dim returnValue As Boolean

returnValue = Me.GetStyle(flag)
protected boolean GetStyle (
	ControlStyles flag
protected function GetStyle (
	flag : ControlStyles
) : boolean



The ControlStyles bit to return the value from.

Return Value

true if the specified control style bit is set to true; otherwise, false.

Control style bit flags are used to categorize supported behavior. A control can enable a style by calling the SetStyle method and passing in the appropriate ControlStyles bit and the Boolean value to set the bit to. To determine the value assigned to a specified ControlStyles bit, use the GetStyle method and pass in the ControlStyles member to evaluate.

The following code example returns the value of the double-buffering related style bits for a Form. This example returns true only if all the style bits are set to true.

Public Function DoubleBufferingEnabled() As Boolean
   ' Get the value of the double-buffering style bits.
   Return Me.GetStyle((ControlStyles.DoubleBuffer _
     Or ControlStyles.UserPaint _
     Or ControlStyles.AllPaintingInWmPaint))
End Function

public boolean DoubleBufferingEnabled()
    // Get the value of the double-buffering style bits.
    return this.GetStyle(ControlStyles.DoubleBuffer | ControlStyles.
        UserPaint | ControlStyles.AllPaintingInWmPaint);
} //DoubleBufferingEnabled
