    if (VisualStyleRenderer.IsElementDefined(
        VisualStyleRenderer renderer =
             new VisualStyleRenderer(VisualStyleElement.ExplorerBar.IEBarMenu.Normal);
        Rectangle rectangle1 = new Rectangle(10, 50, 50, 50);
        renderer.DrawBackground(e.Graphics, rectangle1);
             this.Font, Brushes.Black, new Point(10, 10));
        e.Graphics.DrawString("This element is not defined in the current visual style.",
