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 void FillEllipse(
	Brush brush,
	float x,
	float y,
	float width,
	float height
)

Parameters

brush
Type: System.Drawing.Brush

Brush that determines the characteristics of the fill.

x
Type: System.Single

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

y
Type: System.Single

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

width
Type: System.Single

Width of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

height
Type: System.Single

Height of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

ExceptionCondition
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 PaintEventArgs e, 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 void FillEllipseFloat(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    // Create solid brush.
    SolidBrush redBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.Red);

    // Create location and size of ellipse. 
    float x = 0.0F;
    float y = 0.0F;
    float width = 200.0F;
    float height = 100.0F;

    // Fill ellipse on screen.
    e.Graphics.FillEllipse(redBrush, x, y, width, height);
}
