PaintEventHandler Delegate

Represents the method that will handle the Paint event of a Control.

[Visual Basic]
<Serializable>
Public Delegate Sub PaintEventHandler( _
   ByVal sender As Object, _
   ByVal e As PaintEventArgs _
)
[C#]
[Serializable]
public delegate void PaintEventHandler(
   object sender,
   PaintEventArgs e
);
[C++]
[Serializable]
public __gc __delegate void PaintEventHandler(
   Object* sender,
   PaintEventArgs* e
);

[JScript] In JScript, you can use the delegates in the .NET Framework, but you cannot define your own.

Parameters [Visual Basic, C#, C++]

The declaration of your event handler must have the same parameters as the PaintEventHandler delegate declaration.

sender
The source of the event.
e
A PaintEventArgs that contains the event data.

Remarks

When you create a PaintEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about handling events with delegates, see Events and Delegates.

Example

[Visual Basic] 
' This example creates a PictureBox control on the form and draws to it. 
' This example assumes that the Form_Load event handling method is connected 
' to the Load event of the form.
Private pictureBox1 As New PictureBox()

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    ' Dock the PictureBox to the form and set its background to white.
    pictureBox1.Dock = DockStyle.Fill
    pictureBox1.BackColor = Color.White
    ' Connect the Paint event of the PictureBox to the event handling method.
    AddHandler pictureBox1.Paint, AddressOf Me.pictureBox1_Paint

    ' Add the PictureBox control to the Form.
    Me.Controls.Add(pictureBox1)
End Sub 'Form1_Load


Private Sub pictureBox1_Paint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs)
    ' Create a local version of the graphics object for the PictureBox.
    Dim g As Graphics = e.Graphics

    ' Draw a string on the PictureBox.
    g.DrawString("This is a diagonal line drawn on the control", _
        New Font("Arial", 10), Brushes.Red, New PointF(30.0F, 30.0F))
    ' Draw a line in the PictureBox.
    g.DrawLine(System.Drawing.Pens.Red, pictureBox1.Left, _ 
        pictureBox1.Top, pictureBox1.Right, pictureBox1.Bottom)
End Sub 'pictureBox1_Paint

[C++] 
// This example creates a PictureBox control on the form and draws to it.

private:

   pictureBox1->BackColor = Color::White;
   // Connect the Paint event of the PictureBox to the event handling method.
   pictureBox1->Paint += new System::Windows::Forms::PaintEventHandler(this, &Form1::pictureBox1_Paint);

   // Add the PictureBox control to the Form.
   this->Controls->Add(pictureBox1);
}

void pictureBox1_Paint(Object* /*sender*/, System::Windows::Forms::PaintEventArgs* e)
{
   // Create a local version of the graphics object for the PictureBox.
   Graphics* g = e->Graphics;

   // Draw a string on the PictureBox.
   g->DrawString(S"This is a diagonal line drawn on the control",
      new System::Drawing::Font(S"Arial",10), System::Drawing::Brushes::Blue, Point(30,30));
   // Draw a line in the PictureBox.
   g->DrawLine(System::Drawing::Pens::Red, pictureBox1->Left, pictureBox1->Top,
      pictureBox1->Right, pictureBox1->Bottom);
