Graphics.TranslateClip Method (Single, Single)

Translates the clipping region of this Graphics by specified amounts in the horizontal and vertical directions.

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

public void TranslateClip(
	float dx,
	float dy
)

Parameters

dx
Type: System.Single

The x-coordinate of the translation.

dy
Type: System.Single

The y-coordinate of the translation.

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 rectangle for the clipping region.

  • Sets the clipping region to the rectangle.

  • Translates the clipping region by a vector (50.0F, 50.0F).

  • Fills a large rectangle with a solid black brush.

The result is a translated, small, black rectangle.

private void TranslateClipFloat(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    // Create rectangle for clipping region.
    RectangleF clipRect = new RectangleF(0.0F, 0.0F, 100.0F, 100.0F);

    // Set clipping region of graphics to rectangle.
    e.Graphics.SetClip(clipRect);

    // Translate clipping region. 
    float dx = 50.0F;
    float dy = 50.0F;
    e.Graphics.TranslateClip(dx, dy);

    // Fill rectangle to demonstrate translated clip region.
    e.Graphics.FillRectangle(new SolidBrush(Color.Black), 0, 0, 500, 300);
}
