Graphics.FillEllipse Method (Brush, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32)

 

Fills the interior of an ellipse defined by a bounding rectangle specified by a pair of coordinates, a width, and a height.

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

Public Sub FillEllipse (
	brush As Brush,
	x As Integer,
	y As Integer,
	width As Integer,
	height As Integer
)

Parameters

brush
Type: System.Drawing.Brush

Brush that determines the characteristics of the fill.

x
Type: System.Int32

The x-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

y
Type: System.Int32

The y-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

width
Type: System.Int32

Width of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

height
Type: System.Int32

Height of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

brush is null.

This method fills the interior of an ellipse with a Brush. The ellipse is defined by the bounding rectangle represented by the x, y, width, and height parameters.

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 red brush.

  • Creates the location and size of a rectangle that bounds an ellipse.

  • Fills the ellipse on the screen.

Public Sub FillEllipseInt(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create solid brush.
    Dim redBrush As New SolidBrush(Color.Red)

    ' Create location and size of ellipse.
    Dim x As Integer = 0
    Dim y As Integer = 0
    Dim width As Integer = 200
    Dim height As Integer = 100

    ' Fill ellipse on screen.
    e.Graphics.FillEllipse(redBrush, x, y, width, height)
End Sub
