The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code performs the following actions:

  • Creates a graphics path object and adds an ellipse to it.

  • Creates a black pen.

  • Draws the graphics path to the screen.

public void DrawPathEllipse(PaintEventArgs e)
{
             
    // Create graphics path object and add ellipse.
    GraphicsPath graphPath = new GraphicsPath();
    graphPath.AddEllipse(0, 0, 200, 100);
             
    // Create pen.
    Pen blackPen = new Pen(Color.Black, 3);
             
    // Draw graphics path to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawPath(blackPen, graphPath);
}

public void DrawPathEllipse(PaintEventArgs e) 
{
    // Create graphics path object and add ellipse.
    GraphicsPath graphPath =  new GraphicsPath();
    graphPath.AddEllipse(0, 0, 200, 100);

    // Create pen.
    Pen blackPen =  new Pen(Color.get_Black(), 3);

    // Draw graphics path to screen.
    e.get_Graphics().DrawPath(blackPen, graphPath);
} //DrawPathEllipse
