Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

member SetIconPadding :

        padding:int -> unit

Type: System.Int32

control is null.

Many icons typically have extra space around their central images, so the padding value is only necessary when additional space is necessary. Padding values can be positive or negative. Negative values cause the icon to overlap the edge of the control.

The following code example demonstrates using the ErrorProvider class to notify the user of a data entry error. The example creates a Form that contains a TextBox control, a NumericUpDown control, and a ComboBox control, each validating its content, and an ErrorProvider for each control. The example sets error icon options using the BlinkRate and BlinkStyle properties and the SetIconAlignment and SetIconPadding methods. The SetError method is called with or without appropriate error text during a control's Validated event, depending upon the content in the control.
