Graphics.FillPie Method (Brush, Single, Single, Single, Single, Single, Single)

Fills the interior of a pie section defined by an ellipse specified by a pair of coordinates, a width, a height, and two radial lines.

Namespace:  System.Drawing
Assembly:  System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)

'Declaration
Public Sub FillPie ( _
	brush As Brush, _
	x As Single, _
	y As Single, _
	width As Single, _
	height As Single, _
	startAngle As Single, _
	sweepAngle As Single _
)

Parameters

brush
Type: System.Drawing.Brush

Brush that determines the characteristics of the fill.

x
Type: System.Single

The x-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse from which the pie section comes.

y
Type: System.Single

The y-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse from which the pie section comes.

width
Type: System.Single

Width of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse from which the pie section comes.

height
Type: System.Single

Height of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse from which the pie section comes.

startAngle
Type: System.Single

Angle in degrees measured clockwise from the x-axis to the first side of the pie section.

sweepAngle
Type: System.Single

Angle in degrees measured clockwise from the startAngle parameter to the second side of the pie section.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

brush is Nothing.

This method fills the interior of a pie section defined by an arc of an ellipse and the two radial lines that intersect with the endpoints of the arc. The ellipse is defined by the bounding rectangle. The pie section consists of the two radial lines defined by the startAngle and sweepAngle parameters, and the arc between the intersections of those radial lines with the ellipse.

If the sweepAngle parameter is greater than 360 degrees or less than -360 degrees, it is treated as if it were 360 degrees or -360 degrees, respectively.

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 a solid red brush.

  • Creates the location and size of a rectangle that bounds an ellipse.

  • Defines the start angle (relative to the x axis) and the sweep angle (both in a clockwise direction).

  • Fills the pie-shaped area of the ellipse on the screen.

Public Sub FillPieFloat(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create solid brush. 
    Dim redBrush As New SolidBrush(Color.Red)

    ' Create location and size of ellipse. 
    Dim x As Single = 0.0F
    Dim y As Single = 0.0F
    Dim width As Single = 200.0F
    Dim height As Single = 100.0F

    ' Create start and sweep angles. 
    Dim startAngle As Single = 0.0F
    Dim sweepAngle As Single = 45.0F

    ' Fill pie to screen.
    e.Graphics.FillPie(redBrush, x, y, width, height, startAngle, _
    sweepAngle)
