Gets or sets the size and location of the shape in pixels, relative to the parent control.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs.dll)

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public virtual Rectangle Bounds { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: Rectangle
A Rectangle in pixels, relative to the parent control, that represents the size and location of the shape.

You can call the SetBounds method to change the Bounds property in a single operation.

Because SimpleShape has no non-client area, the Bounds and ClientRectangle properties are the same.

The following example shows how to use the SetBounds method to change the Bounds property of a shape. Specifically, the shape is moved to the upper-left corner of the form and changed to a square. This example requires that you have a RectangleShape control named RectangleShape1 on a form.

private void rectangleShape1_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    // Change the Bounds property.
    rectangleShape1.SetBounds(0, 0, 100, 100);
}
