Graphics.FromHdc Method (IntPtr)
Creates a new Graphics from the specified handle to a device context.
Assembly: System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)
Even if the display device has an associated ICM color profile, GDI+ will not use that profile by default. To enable ICM for a Graphics, construct the Graphics from an HDC after you pass the HDC (and ICM_ON) to the SetICMMode function. Then any drawing done by the Graphics will be adjusted according to the ICM profile associated with the display device. Enabling ICM will result in slower performance.
Creates an internal pointer type variable hdc and sets it to the handle to the device context of the graphics object of the form.
Creates a new graphics object using hdc.
Draws a rectangle with the new graphics object (on the screen).
Releases the new graphics object using hdc.
