The VisualStyleElement.Window.SysButton type exposes the following members.

Public propertyStatic memberDisabledGets a visual style element that represents a System button in the disabled state.
Public propertyStatic memberHotGets a visual style element that represents a System button in the hot state.
Public propertyStatic memberNormalGets a visual style element that represents a System button in the normal state.

Each property of the VisualStyleElement.Window.SysButton class returns a VisualStyleElement for a different state of the System button. This button opens the Window menu (also known as the System menu or Control menu) when it is clicked.

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 DrawVisualStyleElementWindowSysButton1 method from the Paint event-handling method, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

public void DrawVisualStyleElementWindowSysButton1(PaintEventArgs e)
    if (VisualStyleRenderer.IsElementDefined(
        VisualStyleRenderer renderer =
             new VisualStyleRenderer(VisualStyleElement.Window.SysButton.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.",
             this.Font, Brushes.Black, new Point(10, 10));
