Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.DrawItemState

The DrawItemState that represents the state of the item being drawn.

This property value can be a combination of the DrawItemState enumeration members. The members can be combined by using bitwise operators.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the ListBox.DrawItem event. This report helps you learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type ListBox that is named ListBox1. Then make sure that the event handler is associated with the ListBox.DrawItem event.

private void ListBox1_DrawItem(Object sender, DrawItemEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "BackColor", e.BackColor );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Bounds", e.Bounds );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Font", e.Font );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ForeColor", e.ForeColor );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Graphics", e.Graphics );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Index", e.Index );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "State", e.State );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "DrawItem Event" );
}
