Indicates whether the rectangle specified by a pair of coordinates, a width, and a height is contained within the visible clip region of this Graphics.

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

member IsVisible : 
        x:int * 
        y:int * 
        width:int * 
        height:int -> bool

Parameters

x
Type: System.Int32

The x-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the rectangle to test for visibility.

y
Type: System.Int32

The y-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the rectangle to test for visibility.

width
Type: System.Int32

Width of the rectangle to test for visibility.

height
Type: System.Int32

Height of the rectangle to test for visibility.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the rectangle defined by the x, y, width, and height parameters is contained within the visible clip region of this Graphics; otherwise, false.

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 rectangular clipping region and sets it as the clipping region for the graphics object of the form using Replace.

  • Creates the location and size of two rectangles, one inside the clipping region and one outside.

  • Tests each of the rectangles for visibility and draws only the visible one.

The result is one small red rectangle, which is within the clip region.
