Graphics.EnumerateMetafile Method (Metafile, PointF(), Graphics.EnumerateMetafileProc)


Sends the records in the specified Metafile, one at a time, to a callback method for display in a specified parallelogram.

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

Public Sub EnumerateMetafile (
	metafile As Metafile,
	destPoints As PointF(),
	callback As Graphics.EnumerateMetafileProc


Type: System.Drawing.Imaging.Metafile

Metafile to enumerate.

Type: System.Drawing.PointF()

Array of three PointF structures that define a parallelogram that determines the size and location of the drawn metafile.

Type: System.Drawing.Graphics.EnumerateMetafileProc

Graphics.EnumerateMetafileProc delegate that specifies the method to which the metafile records are sent.

This method enumerates the records contained in the specified metafile. Each record is individually sent to a callback method specified by the callback parameter. Typically, the callback method calls the PlayRecord method to "play back", or draw, the record.

If the callback method callsPlayRecord, it must do so by calling the PlayRecord method of the specific Metafile that is being enumerated.

The destPoints parameter specifies three points of a parallelogram. The three PointF structures represent the upper-left, upper-right, and lower-left corners of the parallelogram. The fourth point is extrapolated from the first three to form a parallelogram. The drawn metafile is scaled and sheared to fit the parallelogram.
