I was able to draw a triangle on a toolbarbutton to simulate a drop
down button without having the extra button beside my dropdownbutton.
I have overrrided the onpaint event for the form. that only problem is when I click on the button ( a context menu shows up) the triangle disappears. I also overrided mouse up, down, hover, leave events and made them to call me.invalidate.


The button style is: PushButton



Here is my code
Protected Overrides Sub OnPaint(ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs)

Dim g As Graphics
Dim tbb As ToolBarButton
Dim brush As SolidBrush = New SolidBrush(Color.Black)

Dim Points(2) As Point

Points(0) =
New Point(tbbArchive.Rectangle.Right - 10, tbbArchive.Rectangle.Bottom / 2)

Points(1) =
New Point(tbbArchive.Rectangle.Right - 7, (tbbArchive.Rectangle.Bottom / 2) - 3)

Points(2) =
New Point(tbbArchive.Rectangle.Right - 13, (tbbArchive.Rectangle.Bottom / 2) - 3)

g =
Me.ToolBar1.CreateGraphics

g.FillPolygon(brush, Points)



g.Dispose()

End Sub


Any help is appreciated.
