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

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)

public void FillEllipse (
	Brush brush,
	float x,
	float y,
	float width,
	float height
)
public void FillEllipse (
	Brush brush, 
	float x, 
	float y, 
	float width, 
	float height
)
public function FillEllipse (
	brush : Brush, 
	x : float, 
	y : float, 
	width : float, 
	height : float
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

brush

Brush that determines the characteristics of the fill.

x

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

y

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

width

Width of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

height

Height of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

brush is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

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 PaintEventArgse, 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.

public void FillEllipseFloat(PaintEventArgs e)
{
             
    // Create solid brush.
    SolidBrush redBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.Red);
             
    // Create location and size of ellipse.
    float x = 0.0F;
    float y = 0.0F;
    float width = 200.0F;
    float height = 100.0F;
             
    // Fill ellipse on screen.
    e.Graphics.FillEllipse(redBrush, x, y, width, height);
}

public void FillEllipseFloat(PaintEventArgs e) 
{
    // Create solid brush.
    SolidBrush redBrush =  new SolidBrush(Color.get_Red());

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

    // Fill ellipse on screen.
    e.get_Graphics().FillEllipse(redBrush, x, y, width, height);
} //FillEllipseFloat
