How to change the buttons shape 
This control allows you to define the shape of the button, not being forced to use the standard rectangular buttons. 
To change the shape of the button use the Shape property; to define custom shaped buttons see the section How to create a custom shaped button
To change the appearance and behaviour of the surface it is possible to use the Surface, FlatPillowFactor, ShadowMode, SmoothEdges, SpecialEffect and SpecialEffectFactor properties (the last two do not apply to every shape). 
To put a shadow under the button use the ShadowMode property. 
The SmoothEdges property, used in conjunction with the BackColorContainer property, can reduce the aliasing effect that appears using rounded shapes: the anti-aliasing effect is obtained averaging the button borders with the container background color. 
For Parallelogram shape it is possible to change the slant of the shape using the Slant property. 
For Rounded Rectangle shape it is possible to change the corners roundness using the Roundness property. 
Set the ButtonRaiseFactor property to determine how much raised (or sunken) is the button when it is not pressed (or when it is pressed).
