Hi All,

I am using a Button with FlatStyle = System.Windows.Forms.FlatStyle.Standard. Now the problem is in this I am using an Image which is dancing and button border is also changing on Mouse Enter and Mouse Leave time.

I don't know how to fix this problem and also how to make the Button border color as gray with a width of 1.

Thanks in advance.

Try setting the property like so:

this.myButton.FlatAppearance.BorderSize = 0;

The simple way would be ..

class BorderlessButton:Button
    protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs pevent)
        pevent.Graphics.DrawRectangle(new Pen(this.BackColor,5), this.ClientRectangle);

Once you compile this class. it will be available in the tool box. Drag to form. Set flat style. Display your image.

AFAIK the only way to alter the border of a 'standard' button is to draw it yourself. This would also be the best way to overcome your problems with the Image.

Owner-draw button[^] is a good example from here on the Code Project.

If you don't like that one there are loads of other examples on the web just search on owner draw button.
