e
Type: System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItemRenderEventArgs

A ToolStripItemRenderEventArgs that contains the data to draw the background of the item.

The DrawItemBackground method provides the entry point to the rendering code for the background of an item. Use this method to draw the background of an item when overriding the ToolStripItem.OnPaint method, or to force the background of an item to be drawn in a custom ToolStripRenderer. To change the way the background of an item is rendered, override the OnRenderItemBackground method in a class derived from ToolStripRenderer.
