Banner Settings in Windows Forms Wizard Control (Wizard)

The controls inside the Banner Control include Banner Panel, Title, description and a picture box. The section will walk you through the properties which customizes these controls.

A Banner Panel is a simple gradient panel which holds a Title label, a Description label and a Picture box controls.

NOTE

The Title and Description settings can be set for individual Wizard Pages using WizardPage.Title and WizardPage.Description properties respectively. See _Wizard Page Settings.

this.wizardControl1.Banner = this.pictureBox2;

this.pictureBox2.Image = ((System.Drawing.Image)(resources.GetObject("pictureBox2.Image")));

this.label1.Text = "Page Title";

this.label2.Text = "This is the description of the Wizard Page";

this.gradientPanel1.Controls.Add(this.label1);

this.gradientPanel1.Controls.Add(this.label2);
Me.wizardControl1.Banner = Me.pictureBox2 

Me.pictureBox2.Image = DirectCast((resources.GetObject("pictureBox2.Image")), System.Drawing.Image) 

Me.label1.Text = "Page Title" 

Me.label2.Text = "This is the description of the Wizard Page" 

Me.gradientPanel1.Controls.Add(Me.label1)

Description text

The appearance of the description text for a wizard control can be edited using the description label properties.

Description text

//Setting Font Style for the Label

this.label1.Font = new System.Drawing.Font("Verdana", 8F);

this.label1.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.DarkBlue;
'Setting Font Style for the Label

Me.label1.Font = New System.Drawing.Font("Verdana", 8F)

this.label1.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.DarkBlue

Description text

NOTE

A WizardControl can have only one page title label and one page description label. We can change only the text of these two labels for individual pages using WizardPage.Title and WizardPage.Description properties and not their appearance. Hence Font and ForeColor settings will be similar in all the page.
