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

public bool IsVisible (
	Point point
)
public boolean IsVisible (
	Point point
)
public function IsVisible (
	point : Point
) : boolean
Not applicable.

Parameters

point

Point structure to test for visibility.

Return Value

true if the point specified by the point parameter is contained within the visible clip region of this Graphics; otherwise, false.

The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code performs the following actions:

  • Creates a rectangular clipping region and sets it as the clipping region for the graphics object of the form using Replace.

  • Creates two points, one inside the clipping region and one outside.

  • Tests each of the points for visibility and draws only the visible one.

The result is one small red circle, which is within the clip region.

private void IsVisiblePoint(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    // Set clip region.
    Region clipRegion = new Region(new Rectangle(50, 50, 100, 100));
    e.Graphics.SetClip(clipRegion, CombineMode.Replace);

    // Set up coordinates of points.
    int x1 = 100;
    int y1 = 100;
    int x2 = 200;
    int y2 = 200;
    Point point1 = new Point(x1, y1);
    Point point2 = new Point(x2, y2);

    // If point is visible, fill ellipse that represents it.
    if (e.Graphics.IsVisible(point1))
    {
        e.Graphics.FillEllipse(new SolidBrush(Color.Red), x1, y1, 10, 10);
    }
    if (e.Graphics.IsVisible(point2))
    {
        e.Graphics.FillEllipse(new SolidBrush(Color.Blue), x2, y2, 10, 10);
    }
}
