NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertySystem_CAPS_staticNormal

Gets a visual style element that represents the background of a special group of items in the Explorer Bar.

The Normal property of the VisualStyleElement.ExplorerBar.SpecialGroupBackground class gets a VisualStyleElement that represents the background of a special group of items in the Explorer Bar, such as the Music Tasks group in Windows Explorer.

WinXpFamily

Visual styles are supported only on these platforms.

The following code example demonstrates how to create a VisualStyleRenderer with the VisualStyleElement returned by the Normal property. To run this example, paste it into a Windows Form. Handle the form’s Paint event and call the DrawVisualStyleElementExplorerBarSpecialGroupBackground1 method from the Paint event-handling method, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

Public Sub DrawVisualStyleElementExplorerBarSpecialGroupBackground1(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)
    If (VisualStyleRenderer.IsElementDefined( _
     VisualStyleElement.ExplorerBar.SpecialGroupBackground.Normal)) Then
        Dim renderer As New VisualStyleRenderer _
          (VisualStyleElement.ExplorerBar.SpecialGroupBackground.Normal)
        Dim rectangle1 As New Rectangle(10, 50, 50, 50)
        renderer.DrawBackground(e.Graphics, rectangle1)
        e.Graphics.DrawString("VisualStyleElement.ExplorerBar.SpecialGroupBackground.Normal", _
          Me.Font, Brushes.Black, New Point(10, 10))
    Else
        e.Graphics.DrawString("This element is not defined in the current visual style.", _
          Me.Font, Brushes.Black, New Point(10, 10))
    End If
End Sub
