Graphics.DrawImage Method (Image, Point[], Rectangle, GraphicsUnit, ImageAttributes)

.NET Framework 1.1

Draws the specified portion of the specified Image object at the specified location.

[Visual Basic]
Overloads Public Sub DrawImage( _
   ByVal image As Image, _
   ByVal destPoints() As Point, _
   ByVal srcRect As Rectangle, _
   ByVal srcUnit As GraphicsUnit, _
   ByVal imageAttr As ImageAttributes _
)
[C#]
public void DrawImage(
 Image image,
 Point[] destPoints,
 Rectangle srcRect,
 GraphicsUnit srcUnit,
 ImageAttributes imageAttr
);
[C++]
public: void DrawImage(
 Image* image,
 Point destPoints[],
 Rectangle srcRect,
 GraphicsUnit srcUnit,
 ImageAttributes* imageAttr
);
[JScript]
public function DrawImage(
   image : Image,
 destPoints : Point[],
 srcRect : Rectangle,
 srcUnit : GraphicsUnit,
 imageAttr : ImageAttributes
);

Parameters

image
Image object to draw.
destPoints
Array of three Point structures that define a parallelogram.
srcRect
Rectangle structure that specifies the portion of the image object to draw.
srcUnit
Member of the GraphicsUnit enumeration that specifies the units of measure used by the srcRect parameter.
imageAttr
ImageAttributes object that specifies recoloring and gamma information for the image object.

Return Value

This method does not return a value.

Remarks

The destPoints parameter specifies three points of a parallelogram. The three Point structures represent the upper-left, upper-right, and lower-left corners of the parallelogram. The fourth point is extrapolated from the first three to form a parallelogram.

The srcRect parameter specifies a rectangular portion of the image object to draw. This portion is scaled and sheared to fit inside the parallelogram specified by the destPoints parameter.

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 points that define a parallelogram in which to draw the image.
  • Creates a rectangle to select the portion of the image to draw.
  • Sets the graphics drawing unit to pixel.
  • Draws the original image to the screen.
  • Creates an additional parallelogram in which to draw an adjusted image.
  • Creates and sets the attributes of the adjusted image to have a larger-than-usual gamma value.
  • Draws the adjusted image to the screen.

[Visual Basic, C#] For the original, unadjusted parallelogram, the position locates the image on the screen, and the size of the rectangle and the size and shape of the parallelogram determines the scaling and shearing of the drawn image.

[Visual Basic] 
Public Sub DrawImageParaRectAttrib(e As PaintEventArgs)
' Create image.
Dim newImage As Image = Image.FromFile("SampImag.jpg")
' Create parallelogram for drawing image.
Dim ulCorner1 As New Point(100, 100)
Dim urCorner1 As New Point(325, 100)
Dim llCorner1 As New Point(150, 250)
Dim destPara1 As Point() =  {ulCorner1, urCorner1, llCorner1}
' Create rectangle for source image.
Dim srcRect As New Rectangle(50, 50, 150, 150)
Dim units As GraphicsUnit = GraphicsUnit.Pixel
' Draw original image to screen.
e.Graphics.DrawImage(newImage, destPara1, srcRect, units)
' Create parallelogram for drawing adjusted image.
Dim ulCorner2 As New Point(325, 100)
Dim urCorner2 As New Point(550, 100)
Dim llCorner2 As New Point(375, 250)
Dim destPara2 As Point() =  {ulCorner2, urCorner2, llCorner2}
' Create image attributes and set large gamma.
Dim imageAttr As New ImageAttributes()
imageAttr.SetGamma(4F)
' Draw adjusted image to screen.
e.Graphics.DrawImage(newImage, destPara2, srcRect, units, _
imageAttr)
End Sub
        
[C#] 
public void DrawImageParaRectAttrib(PaintEventArgs e)
{
// Create image.
Image newImage = Image.FromFile("SampImag.jpg");
// Create parallelogram for drawing image.
Point ulCorner1 = new Point(100, 100);
Point urCorner1 = new Point(325, 100);
Point llCorner1 = new Point(150, 250);
Point[] destPara1 = {ulCorner1, urCorner1, llCorner1};
// Create rectangle for source image.
Rectangle srcRect = new Rectangle( 50, 50, 150, 150);
GraphicsUnit units = GraphicsUnit.Pixel;
// Draw original image to screen.
e.Graphics.DrawImage(newImage, destPara1, srcRect, units);
// Create parallelogram for drawing adjusted image.
Point ulCorner2 = new Point(325, 100);
Point urCorner2 = new Point(550, 100);
Point llCorner2 = new Point(375, 250);
Point[] destPara2 = {ulCorner2, urCorner2, llCorner2};
// Create image attributes and set large gamma.
ImageAttributes imageAttr = new ImageAttributes();
imageAttr.SetGamma(4.0F);
// Draw adjusted image to screen.
e.Graphics.DrawImage(newImage, destPara2, srcRect, units, imageAttr);
}
