How to custom draw the background of the bar, mainFrameBarManager?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: XPToolbar |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014


The ClipRectangle property is used to draw the custom background of the bar, mainFrameBarManager. Please refer the below code snippet which illustrates this:


this.bar1.DrawBackground += new PaintEventHandler(bar1_DrawBackground);

void bar1_DrawBackground(object sender, PaintEventArgs e)


Bar bar = (Bar)sender;

Image image1 = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(@"..\..\Image\PINELUMB.JPG");

TextureBrush texture = new TextureBrush(image1);

//Bar edge background image

e.Graphics.FillRectangle(texture, e.ClipRectangle);



AddHandler Bar1.DrawBackground, AddressOf bar1_DrawBackground

Private Sub bar1_DrawBackground(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As PaintEventArgs)

Dim bar As Bar = CType(sender, Bar)

Dim image1 As Image = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile("..\..\Images\PINELUMB.JPG")

Dim texture As TextureBrush = New TextureBrush(image1)

'Bar edge background image

args.Graphics.FillRectangle(texture, args.ClipRectangle)

End Sub
