GraphicsPath.GetBounds Method (Matrix)


Returns a rectangle that bounds this GraphicsPath when this path is transformed by the specified Matrix.

Namespace:   System.Drawing.Drawing2D
Assembly:  System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)

public RectangleF GetBounds(
	Matrix matrix


Type: System.Drawing.Drawing2D.Matrix

The Matrix that specifies a transformation to be applied to this path before the bounding rectangle is calculated. This path is not permanently transformed; the transformation is used only during the process of calculating the bounding rectangle.

Return Value

Type: System.Drawing.RectangleF

A RectangleF that represents a rectangle that bounds this GraphicsPath.

The size of the returned bounding rectangle is influenced by the type of end caps, pen width, and pen miter limit, and therefore produces a "loose fit" to the bounded path. The approximate formula is: the initial bounding rectangle is inflated by pen width, and this result is multiplied by the miter limit, plus some additional margin to allow for end caps.

For an example, see GetBounds().
