The PaintValueEventArgs type exposes the following members.

Public methodPaintValueEventArgsInitializes a new instance of the PaintValueEventArgs class using the specified values.

Public propertyBoundsGets the rectangle that indicates the area in which the painting should be done.
Public propertyContextGets the ITypeDescriptorContext interface to be used to gain additional information about the context this value appears in.
Public propertyGraphicsGets the Graphics object with which painting should be done.
Public propertyValueGets the value to paint.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

PaintValueEventArgs provides all the information needed for a UITypeEditor to paint within an area based on the value of the specified object, including the Rectangle in which the drawing should be done and the Graphics object with which the drawing should be done.

The following code example method returns a PaintValueEventArgs that provides the data needed to paint a representation of the value of an object within a given area:

PaintValueEventArgs^ CreatePaintValueEventArgs( System::ComponentModel::ITypeDescriptorContext^ context, Object^ value, Graphics^ graphics, Rectangle bounds )
   PaintValueEventArgs^ e = gcnew PaintValueEventArgs( context, value, graphics, bounds );
   // The context of the paint value event         e.Context
   // The Object representing the value to paint   e.Value
   // The graphics to use to paint                 e.Graphics
   // The rectangle in which to paint              e.Bounds
   return e;
