    // Create rectangle for clipping region.
    Rectangle clipRect = new Rectangle(0, 0, 100, 100);

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

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