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

'Declaration
Public Sub DrawImage ( _
	image As Image, _
	rect As RectangleF _
)

Parameters

image
Type: System.Drawing.Image

Image to draw.

rect
Type: System.Drawing.RectangleF

RectangleF structure that specifies the location and size of the drawn image.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

image is Nothing.

The image represented by the image object is scaled to the dimensions of the rect rectangle.

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 image from a JPEG file SampImag.jpg in the folder of the example.

  • Creates a rectangle in which to draw the image.

  • Draws the image to the screen.

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

Public Sub DrawImageRectF(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create image. 
    Dim newImage As Image = Image.FromFile("SampImag.jpg")

    ' Create rectangle for displaying image. 
    Dim rect As New RectangleF(100.0F, 100.0F, 450.0F, 150.0F)

    ' Draw image to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawImage(newImage, rect)
End Sub
