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

public void DrawIcon(
	Icon icon,
	Rectangle targetRect
)

Parameters

icon
Type: System.Drawing.Icon

Icon to draw.

targetRect
Type: System.Drawing.Rectangle

Rectangle structure that specifies the location and size of the resulting image on the display surface. The image contained in the icon parameter is scaled to the dimensions of this rectangular area.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

icon is null.

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 an icon from a standard Windows icon file SampIcon.ico in the example folder.

  • Creates a rectangle in which to draw the icon.

  • Draws the icon to the screen.

The position of the rectangle locates the icon on the screen, and the size of the rectangle determines the scaling of the drawn icon.

private void DrawIconRectangle(PaintEventArgs e)
{        
    // Create icon.
    Icon newIcon = new Icon("SampIcon.ico");

    // Create rectangle for icon.
    Rectangle rect = new Rectangle(100, 100, 200, 200);

    // Draw icon to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawIcon(newIcon, rect);
}
