    Self made Button In C#

    Hello,
    I am working with visual studio, dot net framework. I need to make a custome Button using C# code. I need a button control that will allow me to display multiple icons/bitmaps simultaneously.
    Please help.

    Have a look at this page.
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...bpowerpack.asp
    Its for VB & you will need to convert it for C#.
    Hope this helps!

    An alternative is to create a new bitmap of appropriate size and draw an
    icon in each corner of the bitmap. Then assign this new bitmap to the
    buttons image property.
    OR
    Have a look at this page.

    Try this code out.

    Code:
    Rectangle BitmapRect = Rectangle.FromLTRB(0, 0, button1.Width,
    button1.Height);
    BitmapRect.Inflate(-6, -6);
    Bitmap srcImage = new Bitmap(@"c:\test.bmp");
    srcImage.MakeTransparent();
    Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap(BitmapRect.Width, BitmapRect.Height);
    Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(bmp);
    //TopLeft corner
    g.DrawImage(srcImage, Point.Empty);
    //Topright corner
    g.DrawImage(srcImage, BitmapRect.Width - srcImage.Width, 0, srcImage.Width,
    srcImage.Height);
    //BottomLeft corner
    g.DrawImage(srcImage, 0, BitmapRect.Height - srcImage.Height,
    srcImage.Width, srcImage.Height);
    //BottomRight corner
    g.DrawImage(srcImage, BitmapRect.Width - srcImage.Width, BitmapRect.Height -
    srcImage.Height, srcImage.Width, srcImage.Height);
    button1.Image = new Bitmap(bmp);
    g.Dispose();
    bmp.Dispose();
