Remarks

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following 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.

[Visual Basic, C#] 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.

[Visual Basic] 
Public Sub DrawImage4Int(e As PaintEventArgs)
' Create image.
Dim newImage As Image = Image.FromFile("SampImag.jpg")
' Create coordinates for upper-left corner
' of image and for size of image.
Dim x As Integer = 100
Dim y As Integer = 100
Dim width As Integer = 450
Dim height As Integer = 150
' Draw image to screen.
e.Graphics.DrawImage(newImage, x, y, width, height)
End Sub
        
[C#] 
public void DrawImage4Int(PaintEventArgs e)
{
// Create image.
Image newImage = Image.FromFile("SampImag.jpg");
// Create coordinates for upper-left corner.
// of image and for size of image.
int x = 100;
int y = 100;
int width = 450;
int height = 150;
// Draw image to screen.
e.Graphics.DrawImage(newImage, x, y, width, height);
}
