  NameDescription
Public methodCloneWhen overridden in a derived class, creates an exact copy of this Brush.
Public methodCreateObjRefCreates an object that contains all the relevant information required to generate a proxy used to communicate with a remote object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Public methodDispose()Releases all resources used by this Brush object.
Protected methodDispose(Boolean)Releases the unmanaged resources used by the Brush and optionally releases the managed resources.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Overrides Object.Finalize().)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetLifetimeServiceRetrieves the current lifetime service object that controls the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodInitializeLifetimeServiceObtains a lifetime service object to control the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone()Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone(Boolean)Creates a shallow copy of the current MarshalByRefObject object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Protected methodSetNativeBrushIn a derived class, sets a reference to a GDI+ brush object.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

This is an abstract base class and cannot be instantiated. To create a brush object, use classes derived from Brush, such as SolidBrush, TextureBrush, and LinearGradientBrush.

Notes to Inheritors

When you inherit from the Brush class, you must override the Clone method.
