Default Gradient Background

Hi All,

I am trying to work out how to apply a gradient background to a new control I am creating, using C#. I know there is a BackStyle type or enumeration, but how do I apply this to my new control?

firstly check out this,as you see it overrides OnPaint method also it's using a SolidBrush to paint but you should use something like LinearGradientBrush instead(it has a constructor accepts a rectangle you should set it with this.ClientRectangle),check out the links.
