This method fills the interior of an ellipse with a Brush. The ellipse is defined by the bounding rectangle represented by the rect parameter.

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 a rectangle that bounds an ellipse.

  • Fills the ellipse on the screen.

public void FillEllipseRectangle(PaintEventArgs e)
{
             
    // Create solid brush.
    SolidBrush redBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.Red);
             
    // Create rectangle for ellipse.
    int x = 0;
    int y = 0;
    int width = 200;
    int height = 100;
    Rectangle rect = new Rectangle(x, y, width, height);
             
    // Fill ellipse on screen.
    e.Graphics.FillEllipse(redBrush, rect);
}

public void FillEllipseRectangle(PaintEventArgs e) 
{
    // Create solid brush.
    SolidBrush redBrush =  new SolidBrush(Color.get_Red());

    // Create rectangle for ellipse.
    int x = 0;
    int y = 0;
    int width = 200;
    int height = 100;
    Rectangle rect =  new Rectangle(x, y, width, height);

    // Fill ellipse on screen.
    e.get_Graphics().FillEllipse(redBrush, rect);
} //FillEllipseRectangle
