Shape Element in Windows Forms Rating Control (Rating)
29 Apr 2021 / 1 minute to read
It acts like a core element in RatingControl, to illustrate rating values through visual representation.
There are six predefined shapes available for customization. All these shapes support the VisualStyles, Orientation and other customized settings.
this.ratingControl4.Shape = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.Shapes.Heart;
Me.ratingControl4.Shape = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.Shapes.Heart
User-defined shapes can be used in the form of images.
this.ratingControl4.Shape = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.Shapes.CustomImages; customImageCollection1.NormalImage = global::WindowsFormsApplication20.Properties.Resources.file; this.ratingControl1.Images = customImageCollection1;
Me.ratingControl4.Shape = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.Shapes.CustomImages customImageCollection1.NormalImage = Global.WindowsFormsApplication20.Properties.Resources.file Me.ratingControl1.Images = customImageCollection1
In Rating control, the working is based on the following criteria for CustomImages.
- If the Shape property is set to CustomImages and the images are null, then Rating control resets the shape as Star.
- If the HoverImage and SelectedImage are null, Rating control makes use of the ItemHighlightColor and ItemSelectionColor for Hover and Selected state.
- If the HoverHalfImage and SelectedHalfImage are null, Rating control Precision is set to Standard.
