Default

The border style is determined by the current Look-and-Feel settings.

For example, text editors' borders are painted according to the RepositoryItem.LookAndFeel object's settings.

Remarks

The ButtonsStyle property specifies the style which determines the manner in which buttons are displayed in a button edit control and in which they react to mouse events.

You can choose one of predefined styles (Flat, HotFlat, UltraFlat, Simple, Style3D, NoBorder and Default). If the style is set to BorderStyles.Default, the button's appearance depends on the editor's RepositoryItem.LookAndFeel object settings.

To specify the style for editor's borders, see the RepositoryItem.BorderStyle property.
