Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following 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 action:

  • Creates a solid blue brush.
  • Creates the location and size of a rectangle.
  • Fills the rectangular area on the screen.
[Visual Basic, C#] Note   This example shows how to use one of the overloaded versions of FillRectangle. For other examples that might be available, see the individual overload topics.
[Visual Basic] 
Public Sub FillRectangleFloat(e As PaintEventArgs)
' Create solid brush.
Dim blueBrush As New SolidBrush(Color.Blue)
' Create location and size of rectangle.
Dim x As Single = 0F
Dim y As Single = 0F
Dim width As Single = 200F
Dim height As Single = 200F
' Fill rectangle to screen.
e.Graphics.FillRectangle(blueBrush, x, y, width, height)
End Sub
        
[C#] 
public void FillRectangleFloat(PaintEventArgs e)
{
// Create solid brush.
SolidBrush blueBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.Blue);
// Create location and size of rectangle.
float x = 0.0F;
float y = 0.0F;
float width = 200.0F;
float height = 200.0F;
// Fill rectangle to screen.
e.Graphics.FillRectangle(blueBrush, x, y, width, height);
}
