Custom button in C#: How to remove hover background?


Answers

btnClose.FlatAppearance.MouseOverBackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
Question

I'm trying to do a custom button to my form (which has FormBorderStyle = none) using Visual Studio 2005. I have my 3 states button images in an ImageList linked to the button.

this.btnClose.AutoSize = false;
this.btnClose.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
this.btnClose.BackgroundImageLayout = System.Windows.Forms.ImageLayout.Center;
this.btnClose.FlatAppearance.BorderSize = 0;
this.btnClose.FlatStyle = System.Windows.Forms.FlatStyle.Flat;
this.btnClose.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
this.btnClose.ImageKey = "Disabled";
this.btnClose.ImageList = this.imageList1;
this.btnClose.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(368, -5);
this.btnClose.Margin = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(0);
this.btnClose.Name = "btnClose";
this.btnClose.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(31, 31);
this.btnClose.TabIndex = 0;
this.btnClose.UseVisualStyleBackColor = false;
this.btnClose.MouseLeave += new System.EventHandler(this.btnClose_MouseLeave);
this.btnClose.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.btnClose_Click);
this.btnClose.MouseDown += new System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventHandler(this.btnClose_MouseDown);
this.btnClose.MouseHover += new System.EventHandler(this.btnClose_MouseHover);

private void btnClose_MouseHover(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    btnClose.ImageKey = "enabled";
}

private void btnClose_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
{
    btnClose.ImageKey = "down";
}

private void btnClose_MouseLeave(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    btnClose.ImageKey = "disabled";
}

All is working, but there's one catch. Whenever I move the mouse hover the button I get a really annoying grey background.

How can I remove that?
