Gets the ToolStrip to be painted.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public ToolStrip ToolStrip { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.ToolStrip

The ToolStrip to be painted.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the OnRenderToolStripBackground method to paint a gradient in the background of a ToolStrip control. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ToolStripRenderer class.

// This method renders the GridStrip control's background.
protected override void OnRenderToolStripBackground(
    ToolStripRenderEventArgs e)
{
    base.OnRenderToolStripBackground(e);

    // This late initialization is a workaround. The gradient
    // depends on the bounds of the GridStrip control. The bounds 
    // are dependent on the layout engine, which hasn't fully
    // performed layout by the time the Initialize method runs.
    if (this.backgroundBrush == null)
    {
        this.backgroundBrush = new LinearGradientBrush(
           e.ToolStrip.ClientRectangle,
           SystemColors.ControlLightLight,
           SystemColors.ControlDark,
           90,
           true);
    }

    // Paint the GridStrip control's background.
    e.Graphics.FillRectangle(
        this.backgroundBrush, 
        e.AffectedBounds);
}
