protected override void Paint(Graphics graphics,
    Rectangle clipBounds, Rectangle cellBounds, int rowIndex,
    DataGridViewElementStates elementState, object value,
    object formattedValue, string errorText,
    DataGridViewCellStyle cellStyle,
    DataGridViewAdvancedBorderStyle advancedBorderStyle,
    DataGridViewPaintParts paintParts)
{
    // The button cell is disabled, so paint the border,   
    // background, and disabled button for the cell. 
    if (!this.enabledValue)
    {
        // Draw the cell background, if specified. 
        if ((paintParts & DataGridViewPaintParts.Background) ==
            DataGridViewPaintParts.Background)
        {
            SolidBrush cellBackground =
                new SolidBrush(cellStyle.BackColor);
            graphics.FillRectangle(cellBackground, cellBounds);
            cellBackground.Dispose();
        }

        // Draw the cell borders, if specified. 
        if ((paintParts & DataGridViewPaintParts.Border) ==
            DataGridViewPaintParts.Border)
        {
            PaintBorder(graphics, clipBounds, cellBounds, cellStyle,
                advancedBorderStyle);
        }

        // Calculate the area in which to draw the button.
        Rectangle buttonArea = cellBounds;
        Rectangle buttonAdjustment =
            this.BorderWidths(advancedBorderStyle);
        buttonArea.X += buttonAdjustment.X;
        buttonArea.Y += buttonAdjustment.Y;
        buttonArea.Height -= buttonAdjustment.Height;
        buttonArea.Width -= buttonAdjustment.Width;

        // Draw the disabled button.                
        ButtonRenderer.DrawButton(graphics, buttonArea,
            PushButtonState.Disabled);

        // Draw the disabled button text.  
        if (this.FormattedValue is String) 
        {
            TextRenderer.DrawText(graphics,
                (string)this.FormattedValue,
                this.DataGridView.Font,
                buttonArea, SystemColors.GrayText);
        }
    }
    else
    {
        // The button cell is enabled, so let the base class  
        // handle the painting. 
        base.Paint(graphics, clipBounds, cellBounds, rowIndex,
            elementState, value, formattedValue, errorText,
            cellStyle, advancedBorderStyle, paintParts);
    }
