How do I draw a color border on a Panel control

I would like to have a panel control which has the ability to have different
color borders, any idea how to accomplish this.

The simplest way is to use two panels one inside other with some pixels
space between their borders. You can color background color of bigger panel
to color you want so it will looks like colored border of the panel.
The other way is to build your cutom control derived from panel with
override of onPaint event and just draw using GDI+ border you want

Hope it helps

I have a scrollable control I'm working on. Some parts of the painting I want to always be in the same position like my border. But when I hit the scroll bars my border moves. I dont't understand why. Here's an example: public class ListTable : System.Windows.Forms.ScrollableControl { public ListTable() { SetStyle(ControlStyles.ResizeRedraw, true);

I see many people responding with "Capture the onpaint event" but honestly i believe im not the only person who gets no benefit from such a suggestion. A sample on capturing this event, setting the border color to something

I have a custom Panel which will have smaller custom Panels added and drawn within it. I want to be able to re-order the arrangement of the inner Panels using drag n drop, and I want to do this graphically by actually drawing the inner Panel being dragged around, instead of just the default DragDropEffects graphics. But I can't seem to get this to work... What I tried is when you click on an inner Panel you acitvate a DragNDrop with...

I have a panel that contains a label and a picturebox. When clicked, I want to draw a rectangle over everything. I can draw the rect and set the color, no big deal. The problem is because I have to pass the rect of the panel, it draws on that, and under the other controls. How can I force it to draw OVER everything else? Ideally this would also be trackable since the whole thing(panel and children) will be dragable. This is what i've got...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
