Graphics::FillEllipse Method (Brush, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32)

Fills the interior of an ellipse defined by a bounding rectangle specified by a pair of coordinates, a width, and a height.

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

void FillEllipse(
	Brush^ brush, 
	int x, 
	int y, 
	int width, 
	int height


Type: System.Drawing::Brush

Brush that determines the characteristics of the fill.

Type: System::Int32

The x-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

Type: System::Int32

The y-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

Type: System::Int32

Width of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

Type: System::Int32

Height of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.


brush is nullptr.

This method fills the interior of an ellipse with a Brush. The ellipse is defined by the bounding rectangle represented by the x, y, width, and height parameters.

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.

  • Fills the ellipse on the screen.

   void FillEllipseInt( PaintEventArgs^ e )
      // Create solid brush.
      SolidBrush^ redBrush = gcnew SolidBrush( Color::Red );

      // Create location and size of ellipse. 
      int x = 0;
      int y = 0;
      int width = 200;
      int height = 100;

      // Fill ellipse on screen.
      e->Graphics->FillEllipse( redBrush, x, y, width, height );
