Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public ToolStripItem Item { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem

The ToolStripItem to paint.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the OnRenderButtonBackground method to draw a border around a ToolStripButton control's Image. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ToolStripRenderer class.

// This method draws a border around the button's image. If the background
// to be rendered belongs to the empty cell, a string is drawn. Otherwise,
// a border is drawn at the edges of the button.
protected override void OnRenderButtonBackground(
    ToolStripItemRenderEventArgs e)
{
    base.OnRenderButtonBackground(e);

    // Define some local variables for convenience.
    Graphics g = e.Graphics;
    GridStrip gs = e.ToolStrip as GridStrip;
    ToolStripButton gsb = e.Item as ToolStripButton;

    // Calculate the rectangle around which the border is painted.
    Rectangle imageRectangle = new Rectangle(
        borderThickness, 
        borderThickness, 
        e.Item.Width - 2 * borderThickness, 
        e.Item.Height - 2 * borderThickness);

    // If rendering the empty cell background, draw an 
    // explanatory string, centered in the ToolStripButton.
    if (gsb == gs.EmptyCell)
    {
        e.Graphics.DrawString(
            "Drag to here",
            gsb.Font, 
            SystemBrushes.ControlDarkDark,
            imageRectangle, style);
    }
    else
    {
        // If the button can be a drag source, paint its border red.
        // otherwise, paint its border a dark color.
        Brush b = gs.IsValidDragSource(gsb) ? b = 
            Brushes.Red : SystemBrushes.ControlDarkDark;

        // Draw the top segment of the border.
        Rectangle borderSegment = new Rectangle(
            0, 
            0, 
            e.Item.Width, 
            imageRectangle.Top);
        g.FillRectangle(b, borderSegment);

        // Draw the right segment.
        borderSegment = new Rectangle(
            imageRectangle.Right,
            0,
            e.Item.Bounds.Right - imageRectangle.Right,
            imageRectangle.Bottom);
        g.FillRectangle(b, borderSegment);

        // Draw the left segment.
        borderSegment = new Rectangle(
            0,
            0,
            imageRectangle.Left,
            e.Item.Height);
        g.FillRectangle(b, borderSegment);

        // Draw the bottom segment.
        borderSegment = new Rectangle(
            0,
            imageRectangle.Bottom,
            e.Item.Width,
            e.Item.Bounds.Bottom - imageRectangle.Bottom);
        g.FillRectangle(b, borderSegment);
    }
}
