They're arbitrary values. They only add a few pixels to the height and width. I can't reproduce the issues you're having with font sizes.

Pretty nice control but there is a problem with the backcolor property: if you give the control a custom background color and use a Classic Windows desktop background it works perfectly but if you change the desktop to Aero the custom background color change to some standard color.

When we wrote the SplitButton the custom background color property was a second class citizen. By default the splitbutton uses Windows default styling (i.e. the correct way). If you want to use custom colors you can edit the source code. Specifically look at the drawing code.

Hi,

Download the splitbutton control. One problem with it is that the control doesn't handle flat style, flat style appearance and background color at all.

Is there a way to get it to work?

The SplitButton doesn't support the flat style (as per design). You can always add it. It's failry simple to do.

Hi,
thanks for the SplitButton - it works great and looks good. Unfortunately with one little exception :)
The text of the button is placed exactly one pixel lower than on normal WinForm buttons.
Wouldn't notice this if there wasn't a normal button directly besides my splitbutton.
Do you have an idea how to fix this?

I'm developing with .NET 3.5 and experience this problem with Win XP. Haven't tested
it with Win 7 yet.

Thanks & cheers
