Graphics::DrawImage Method (Image, RectangleF)

Draws the specified Image at the specified location and with the specified size.

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

void DrawImage(
	Image^ image, 
	RectangleF rect


Type: System.Drawing::Image

Image to draw.

Type: System.Drawing::RectangleF

RectangleF structure that specifies the location and size of the drawn image.


image is nullptr.

The image represented by the image object is scaled to the dimensions of the rect rectangle.

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 an image from a JPEG file SampImag.jpg in the folder of the example.

  • Creates a rectangle in which to draw the image.

  • Draws the image to the screen.

The position of the rectangle locates the image on the screen, and the original size of the image and the size of the rectangle determines the scaling of the drawn image.

   void DrawImageRectF( PaintEventArgs^ e )
      // Create image.
      Image^ newImage = Image::FromFile( "SampImag.jpg" );

      // Create rectangle for displaying image.
      RectangleF rect = RectangleF(100.0F,100.0F,450.0F,150.0F);

      // Draw image to screen.
      e->Graphics->DrawImage( newImage, rect );
