Graphics.FillPath Method

Fills the interior of a GraphicsPath.

Namespace:  System.Drawing
Assembly:  System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)
public void FillPath(
	Brush brush,
	GraphicsPath path
)

Parameters

brush
Type: System.Drawing.Brush

Brush that determines the characteristics of the fill.

path
Type: System.Drawing.Drawing2D.GraphicsPath

GraphicsPath that represents the path to fill.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

brush is null.

path is null.

A GraphicsPath consists of a series of line and curve segments. If the path represented by the path parameter is not closed, an additional segment is added from the last point to the first point to close the path.

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 a solid red brush.

  • Creates a graphics path object.

  • Adds an ellipse to the graphics path.

  • Fills the path on the screen.

public void FillPathEllipse(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    // Create solid brush.
    SolidBrush redBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.Red);

    // Create graphics path object and add ellipse.
    GraphicsPath graphPath = new GraphicsPath();
    graphPath.AddEllipse(0, 0, 200, 100);

    // Fill graphics path to screen.
    e.Graphics.FillPath(redBrush, graphPath);
}
