PaintEventHandler Delegate

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

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

'Declaration
Public Delegate Sub PaintEventHandler ( _
	sender As Object, _
	e As PaintEventArgs _
)
'Usage
Dim instance As New PaintEventHandler(AddressOf HandlerMethod)

Parameters

sender
Type: System.Object

The source of the event.

e
Type: System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs

A PaintEventArgs that contains the event data.

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.

The following code examples draws lines and text on a PictureBox control.

' This example assumes that the Form_Load event handler 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 handler 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))
