)

Parameters

image
Type: System.Drawing.Image

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

image is null.

The rectangle defined by the x, y, width, and height parameters determines the position and size of the drawn image.

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

  • Creates an image from a JPEG file SampImag.jpg in the folder of the example.

  • Creates the position and size of a rectangle in which to draw the image.

  • Draws the image to the screen.

The position of the rectangle locates the image on the screen, and the size of the original image and the size of the rectangle determines the scaling of the drawn image.


public void DrawImage4Float(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    // Create image.
    Image newImage = Image.FromFile("SampImag.jpg");

    // Create coordinates for upper-left corner.

    // of image and for size of image.
    float x = 100.0F;
    float y = 100.0F;
    float width = 450.0F;
    float height = 150.0F;

    // Draw image to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawImage(newImage, x, y, width, height);
}
