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


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
