TextureBrush Class

Each property of the TextureBrush class is a Brush object that uses an image to fill the interior of a shape. This class cannot be inherited.

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

public sealed class TextureBrush : Brush

The TextureBrush type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodTextureBrush(Image)Initializes a new TextureBrush object that uses the specified image.
Public methodTextureBrush(Image, WrapMode)Initializes a new TextureBrush object that uses the specified image and wrap mode.
Public methodTextureBrush(Image, Rectangle)Initializes a new TextureBrush object that uses the specified image and bounding rectangle.
Public methodTextureBrush(Image, RectangleF)Initializes a new TextureBrush object that uses the specified image and bounding rectangle.
Public methodTextureBrush(Image, WrapMode, Rectangle)Initializes a new TextureBrush object that uses the specified image, wrap mode, and bounding rectangle.
Public methodTextureBrush(Image, WrapMode, RectangleF)Initializes a new TextureBrush object that uses the specified image, wrap mode, and bounding rectangle.
Public methodTextureBrush(Image, Rectangle, ImageAttributes)Initializes a new TextureBrush object that uses the specified image, bounding rectangle, and image attributes.
Public methodTextureBrush(Image, RectangleF, ImageAttributes)Initializes a new TextureBrush object that uses the specified image, bounding rectangle, and image attributes.

  NameDescription
Public propertyImageGets the Image object associated with this TextureBrush object.
Public propertyTransformGets or sets a copy of the Matrix object that defines a local geometric transformation for the image associated with this TextureBrush object.

  NameDescription
Public methodCloneCreates an exact copy of this TextureBrush object. (Overrides Brush.Clone().)
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. (Inherited from Brush.)
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
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.)
Public methodMultiplyTransform(Matrix)Multiplies the Matrix object that represents the local geometric transformation of this TextureBrush object by the specified Matrix object by prepending the specified Matrix object.
Public methodMultiplyTransform(Matrix, MatrixOrder)Multiplies the Matrix object that represents the local geometric transformation of this TextureBrush object by the specified Matrix object in the specified order.
Public methodResetTransformResets the Transform property of this TextureBrush object to identity.
Public methodRotateTransform(Single)Rotates the local geometric transformation of this TextureBrush object by the specified amount. This method prepends the rotation to the transformation.
Public methodRotateTransform(Single, MatrixOrder)Rotates the local geometric transformation of this TextureBrush object by the specified amount in the specified order.
Public methodScaleTransform(Single, Single)Scales the local geometric transformation of this TextureBrush object by the specified amounts. This method prepends the scaling matrix to the transformation.
Public methodScaleTransform(Single, Single, MatrixOrder)Scales the local geometric transformation of this TextureBrush object by the specified amounts in the specified order.
Protected methodSetNativeBrushIn a derived class, sets a reference to a GDI+ brush object. (Inherited from Brush.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodTranslateTransform(Single, Single)Translates the local geometric transformation of this TextureBrush object by the specified dimensions. This method prepends the translation to the transformation.
Public methodTranslateTransform(Single, Single, MatrixOrder)Translates the local geometric transformation of this TextureBrush object by the specified dimensions in the specified order.

The following code example demonstrates how to obtain a new bitmap using the FromFile method. It also demonstrates a TextureBrush.

This example is designed to be used with Windows Forms. Create a form containing a button named Button2. Paste the code into the form and associate the Button2_Click method with the button's Click event.

private void Button2_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    try
    {
        Bitmap image1 = (Bitmap) Image.FromFile(@"C:\Documents and Settings\" +
            @"All Users\Documents\My Music\music.bmp", true);

        TextureBrush texture = new TextureBrush(image1);
        texture.WrapMode = System.Drawing.Drawing2D.WrapMode.Tile;
        Graphics formGraphics = this.CreateGraphics();
        formGraphics.FillEllipse(texture, 
            new RectangleF(90.0F, 110.0F, 100, 100));
        formGraphics.Dispose();

    }
    catch(System.IO.FileNotFoundException)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("There was an error opening the bitmap." +
            "Please check the path.");
    }

}
