The DrawNineGrid (section 2.2.2.2.1.1.2.21) and MultiDrawNineGrid (section 2.2.2.2.1.1.2.22) Primary Drawing Orders are used to render NineGrid bitmaps that have been stored in the NineGrid Bitmap Cache using the Create NineGrid Bitmap (section 2.2.2.2.1.3.4) and Stream Bitmap Orders (section 2.2.2.2.1.3.5).
