The following example shows how to a TableLayoutCellPaintEventArgs to customize the appearance of a TableLayoutPanel control. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the TableLayoutPanel control.

public class DemoTableLayoutPanel : TableLayoutPanel
	protected override void OnCellPaint(TableLayoutCellPaintEventArgs e)

        Control c = this.GetControlFromPosition(e.Column, e.Row);

        if ( c != null )
            Graphics g = e.Graphics;

				e.CellBounds.Location.Y + 1,
				e.CellBounds.Width - 2, e.CellBounds.Height - 2);

				e.CellBounds.Location.X + 1, 
				e.CellBounds.Location.Y + 1, 
				e.CellBounds.Width - 2, 
				e.CellBounds.Height - 2);
