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

public void SetClip(
	RectangleF rect
)

Parameters

rect
Type: System.Drawing.RectangleF
RectangleF structure that represents the new clip region.

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 small rectangle for the clipping region.

  • Sets the clipping region to the rectangle.

  • Fills a large rectangle with a solid black brush.

The result is a small, filled, black rectangle.


private void SetClipRectangleF(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    // Create rectangle for clipping region.
    RectangleF clipRect = new RectangleF(0.0F, 0.0F, 100.0F, 100.0F);

    // Set clipping region of graphics to rectangle.
    e.Graphics.SetClip(clipRect);

    // Fill rectangle to demonstrate clip region.
    e.Graphics.FillRectangle(new SolidBrush(Color.Black), 0, 0, 500, 300);
}
