Custom Border


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

Has anyone tried to create a custom border for a chart control? Or is it possible anyhow?

So, I don't want to use for example: new ImageBorder(ImageBorderType.Slide) but something like new CustomBorder()

I was trying to implement the IAdornment, IPersistable, IBorderAdornment interfaces but it does not seem to work as expected.

Unfortunately, I didn't find any information concerning the creation of custom borders.

Has anyone some more information? Any suggestions?

Greetings and thanks,

By design you are only able to use SimpleBorder or ImageBorder objects. However, please note that you can also use the Draw() method which allows you to draw a SimpleBorder to a selected device context without ever assigning the SimpleBorder object to a chart. Take a look at the following sample:

SimpleBorder simpleBorder = new SimpleBorder();

Rectangle rect = new Rectangle(0, 0, 500, 350);

Graphics graphics = this.CreateGraphics();

simpleBorder.Type = SimpleBorderType.RaisedOuter;

simpleBorder.Draw(graphics, rect, Color.Red);
