Gets a visual style element that represents the bottom border of an inactive small window.

Each property of the VisualStyleElement.Window.SmallFrameBottom class gets a VisualStyleElement for a different state of the bottom border of a small window, such as a tool window.


Visual styles are supported only on these platforms.

The following code example demonstrates how to create a VisualStyleRenderer with the VisualStyleElement returned by the Active property. To run this example, paste it into a Windows Form. Handle the form’s Paint event and call the DrawVisualStyleElementWindowSmallFrameBottom1 method from the Paint event-handling method, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

public void DrawVisualStyleElementWindowSmallFrameBottom1(PaintEventArgs e)
    if (VisualStyleRenderer.IsElementDefined(
        VisualStyleRenderer renderer =
             new VisualStyleRenderer(VisualStyleElement.Window.SmallFrameBottom.Active);
        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.",
             this.Font, Brushes.Black, new Point(10, 10));
