The following code example uses the DrawHorizontalTrack method in a custom control's OnPaint method to draw a track bar. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the TrackBarRenderer class.

// Draw the track bar. 
protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    if (!TrackBarRenderer.IsSupported)
    {
        this.Parent.Text = "CustomTrackBar Disabled";
        return;
    }

    this.Parent.Text = "CustomTrackBar Enabled";
    TrackBarRenderer.DrawHorizontalTrack(e.Graphics,
        trackRectangle);
    TrackBarRenderer.DrawTopPointingThumb(e.Graphics,
        thumbRectangle, thumbState);
    TrackBarRenderer.DrawHorizontalTicks(e.Graphics,
        ticksRectangle, numberTicks, EdgeStyle.Raised);
}

// Determine whether the user has clicked the track bar thumb. 
protected override void OnMouseDown(MouseEventArgs e)
{
    if (!TrackBarRenderer.IsSupported)
        return;

    if (this.thumbRectangle.Contains(e.Location))
    {
        thumbClicked = true;
        thumbState = TrackBarThumbState.Pressed;
    }

    this.Invalidate();
}
