Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the user has enabled visual styles in the operating system and visual styles are applied to the client areas of application windows; otherwise, false.

If this property is false, the methods of this class will throw an InvalidOperationException.

The following code example uses the IsSupported property to determine whether to use the ScrollBarRenderer methods. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ScrollBarRenderer class.

// Draw the scroll bar in its normal state.
protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    base.OnPaint(e);

    // Visual styles are not enabled.
    if (!ScrollBarRenderer.IsSupported)
    {
        this.Parent.Text = "CustomScrollBar Disabled";
        return;
    }

    this.Parent.Text = "CustomScrollBar Enabled";

    // Draw the scroll bar track.
    ScrollBarRenderer.DrawRightHorizontalTrack(e.Graphics,
        ClientRectangle, ScrollBarState.Normal);

    // Draw the thumb and thumb grip in the current state.
    ScrollBarRenderer.DrawHorizontalThumb(e.Graphics,
        thumbRectangle, thumbState);
    ScrollBarRenderer.DrawHorizontalThumbGrip(e.Graphics,
        thumbRectangle, thumbState);

    // Draw the scroll arrows in the current state.
    ScrollBarRenderer.DrawArrowButton(e.Graphics,
            leftArrowRectangle, leftButtonState);
    ScrollBarRenderer.DrawArrowButton(e.Graphics,
            rightArrowRectangle, rightButtonState);

    // Draw a highlighted rectangle in the left side of the scroll 
    // bar track if the user has clicked between the left arrow 
    // and thumb.
    if (leftBarClicked)
    {
        clickedBarRectangle.X = thumbLeftLimit;
        clickedBarRectangle.Width = thumbRectangle.X - thumbLeftLimit;
        ScrollBarRenderer.DrawLeftHorizontalTrack(e.Graphics,
            clickedBarRectangle, ScrollBarState.Pressed);
    }

    // Draw a highlighted rectangle in the right side of the scroll 
    // bar track if the user has clicked between the right arrow 
    // and thumb.
    else if (rightBarClicked)
    {
        clickedBarRectangle.X =
            thumbRectangle.X + thumbRectangle.Width;
        clickedBarRectangle.Width =
            thumbRightLimitRight - clickedBarRectangle.X;
        ScrollBarRenderer.DrawRightHorizontalTrack(e.Graphics,
            clickedBarRectangle, ScrollBarState.Pressed);
    }
}
