   // Create a SolidBrush object.
   SolidBrush blackBrush(Color(255, 0, 0, 0));

   // Initialize the variables that define the ellipse.
   REAL x = 0.0f;
   REAL y = 0.0f;
   REAL width = 200.1f;
   REAL height = 100.4f;

   // Fill the ellipse.
   graphics.FillEllipse(&blackBrush, x, y, width, height);
}
