N

but more like the style visual studio use for the bars on the side that autohide?
 
Handle the button's paint event.

Use the graphic object's RotateTransform to rotate the canvas and DrawString away!

Hi,
First off, Rohit welcome to the forum ;) I hope you will spend your time on this website with a pleasure.

Witzulu, as Rohit gave you a good point all that I can do here is to provide a code by his scenario.

just a rough code:
PHP:
PrivateSub Button1_Paint(ByVal sender AsObject, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs) Handles Button1.Paint
 
e.Graphics.TranslateTransform(25, 30)
 
e.Graphics.RotateTransform(90)
 
e.Graphics.DrawString("Solution Explorer", Me.Font, Brushes.Blue, 0, 0)
 
EndSub


Also you can take a look at the attachment and see code at work in deeds of ... Cheers ;)
