The following code example demonstrates how to override the OnRenderButtonBackground method to draw a border around a ToolStripButton control's Image. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ToolStripRenderer class.

  ' This method draws a border around the button's image. If the background
  ' to be rendered belongs to the empty cell, a string is drawn. Otherwise,
  ' a border is drawn at the edges of the button.
  Protected Overrides Sub OnRenderButtonBackground(e As ToolStripItemRenderEventArgs)
     MyBase.OnRenderButtonBackground(e)

     ' Define some local variables for convenience.
     Dim g As Graphics = e.Graphics
     Dim gs As GridStrip = e.ToolStrip 
     Dim gsb As ToolStripButton = e.Item 

     ' Calculate the rectangle around which the border is painted.
     Dim imageRectangle As New Rectangle(borderThickness, borderThickness, e.Item.Width - 2 * borderThickness, e.Item.Height - 2 * borderThickness)

     ' If rendering the empty cell background, draw an 
     ' explanatory string, centered in the ToolStripButton.
        If gsb Is gs.EmptyCell Then
            e.Graphics.DrawString("Drag to here", gsb.Font, SystemBrushes.ControlDarkDark, imageRectangle, style)
        Else
            ' If the button can be a drag source, paint its border red.
            ' otherwise, paint its border a dark color.
            Dim b As Brush = IIf(gs.IsValidDragSource(gsb), Brushes.Red, SystemBrushes.ControlDarkDark)

            ' Draw the top segment of the border.
            Dim borderSegment As New Rectangle(0, 0, e.Item.Width, imageRectangle.Top)
            g.FillRectangle(b, borderSegment)

            ' Draw the right segment.
            borderSegment = New Rectangle(imageRectangle.Right, 0, e.Item.Bounds.Right - imageRectangle.Right, imageRectangle.Bottom)
            g.FillRectangle(b, borderSegment)

            ' Draw the left segment.
            borderSegment = New Rectangle(0, 0, imageRectangle.Left, e.Item.Height)
            g.FillRectangle(b, borderSegment)

            ' Draw the bottom segment.
            borderSegment = New Rectangle(0, imageRectangle.Bottom, e.Item.Width, e.Item.Bounds.Bottom - imageRectangle.Bottom)
            g.FillRectangle(b, borderSegment)
        End If
    End Sub
