A ToolStripItemTextRenderEventArgs that contains the data to draw the text.

The DrawItemText method provides the entry point to the rendering code for the text of a ToolStripItem.

To change the way the item text is rendered, override the OnRenderItemText method in a class derived from ToolStripRenderer.
