Not applicable.

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

Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Windows Server 2003 Platform Note: 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 DrawVisualStyleElementExplorerBarSpecialGroupHead1 method from the Paint event-handling method, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

public void DrawVisualStyleElementExplorerBarSpecialGroupHead1(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    if (VisualStyleRenderer.IsElementDefined(
        VisualStyleElement.ExplorerBar.SpecialGroupHead.Normal))
    {
        VisualStyleRenderer renderer =
             new VisualStyleRenderer(VisualStyleElement.ExplorerBar.SpecialGroupHead.Normal);
        Rectangle rectangle1 = new Rectangle(10, 50, 50, 50);
        renderer.DrawBackground(e.Graphics, rectangle1);
        e.Graphics.DrawString("VisualStyleElement.ExplorerBar.SpecialGroupHead.Normal",
             this.Font, Brushes.Black, new Point(10, 10));
    }
    else
        e.Graphics.DrawString("This element is not defined in the current visual style.",
             this.Font, Brushes.Black, new Point(10, 10));
}
