# Graphics.FillPolygon Method (Brush, Point[])

.NET Framework 3.0
Fills the interior of a polygon defined by an array of points specified by Point structures.

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

## Syntax

```public void FillPolygon (
Brush brush,
Point[] points
)
```
```public void FillPolygon (
Brush brush,
Point[] points
)
```
```public function FillPolygon (
brush : Brush,
points : Point[]
)
```
```Not applicable.
```

#### Parameters

brush

Brush that determines the characteristics of the fill.

points

Array of Point structures that represent the vertices of the polygon to fill.

## Exceptions

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

brush is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

-or-

points is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

## Remarks

Every two consecutive points in the array specify a side of the polygon. In addition, if the last point and the first point do not coincide, they specify the closing side of the polygon.

## Example

The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code performs the following actions:

• Creates a solid blue brush.

• Creates an array of seven points to define a polygon.

• Fills the polygonal area on the screen.

```public void FillPolygonPoint(PaintEventArgs e)
{

// Create solid brush.
SolidBrush blueBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.Blue);

// Create points that define polygon.
Point point1 = new Point(50, 50);
Point point2 = new Point(100, 25);
Point point3 = new Point(200, 5);
Point point4 = new Point(250, 50);
Point point5 = new Point(300, 100);
Point point6 = new Point(350, 200);
Point point7 = new Point(250, 250);
Point[] curvePoints = {point1, point2, point3, point4, point5, point6, point7};

// Draw polygon to screen.
e.Graphics.FillPolygon(blueBrush, curvePoints);
}

```
```public void FillPolygonPoint(PaintEventArgs e)
{
// Create solid brush.
SolidBrush blueBrush =  new SolidBrush(Color.get_Blue());

// Create points that define polygon.
Point point1 =  new Point(50, 50);
Point point2 =  new Point(100, 25);
Point point3 =  new Point(200, 5);
Point point4 =  new Point(250, 50);
Point point5 =  new Point(300, 100);
Point point6 =  new Point(350, 200);
Point point7 =  new Point(250, 250);
Point curvePoints[] =  {point1, point2, point3, point4, point5, point6,
point7};

// Draw polygon to screen.
e.get_Graphics().FillPolygon(blueBrush, curvePoints);
} //FillPolygonPoint

```
