graphics.drawstring is not clearing default text before drawing a new text. RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI,

       I have button control in winform. I want to keep the text color of button to white when the button is disabled so, i have used Pain event. Inside the paint event I am calling graphics.drawstring. The default text and newly drawn string both are shown. I want default text to be cleared before drawing a new string. Below is my code please let me know where i am wrong. 

    dynamic mybutton = (Button)sender;
                dynamic drawBrush = new SolidBrush(mybutton.ForeColor);
                dynamic sf = new StringFormat
                    Alignment = StringAlignment.Center,
                    LineAlignment = StringAlignment.Center
                e.Graphics.DrawString(this.mybutton.Text, mybutton.Font, drawBrush, this.mybutton.ClientRectangle, sf);

    This code is working fine for English characters but for Japanese characters i am facing the issue.

  • Hi deepthinikhil,

    In your code example, there is no statement about the "button is disabled".

    Maybe you can use the properties of Button.Text and Button.ForeColor to set the text and color of button, instead of using the

    method Graphics.Drawstring.

    Best Regards,
