Adding SfButton into a Form

This section describes how to add the SfButton to a form.

Through Designer

To add the SfButton to form, drag and drop the SfButton from the toolbox to the surface of the form designer.


Through Code

To programmatically add the SfButton to form, create a new instance of the SfButton and add it to the form the Controls collection.

//Create a new instance of the SfButton control
SfButton sfButton1 = new Syncfusion.WinForms.Buttons.SfButton();

//Initialize the font, location, name, size and text for the SfButton.
sfButton1.Font = new System.Drawing.Font("Segoe UI Semibold", 9F);
sfButton1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(60, 62);
sfButton1.Name = "sfButton1";
sfButton1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(96, 28);
sfButton1.Text = "sfButton1";

//Add the SfButton into the form.

Performing Action on the SfButton Click

The SfButton allows adding the click event in two ways:

  1. Adding the click event by double clicking the SfButton in designer.
  2. Programmatically raises the clicking event of the SfButton.
//Raises the click event of SfButton
sfButton1.Click += sfButton1_Click;

//Perform any action on click action method
private void sfButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    MessageBox.Show("SfButton was clicked");
