public sealed class HatchBrush : Brush

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodHatchBrush(HatchStyle, Color)

Initializes a new instance of the HatchBrush class with the specified HatchStyle enumeration and foreground color.

System_CAPS_pubmethodHatchBrush(HatchStyle, Color, Color)

Initializes a new instance of the HatchBrush class with the specified HatchStyle enumeration, foreground color, and background color.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyBackgroundColor

Gets the color of spaces between the hatch lines drawn by this HatchBrush object.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyForegroundColor

Gets the color of hatch lines drawn by this HatchBrush object.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyHatchStyle

Gets the hatch style of this HatchBrush object.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodClone()

Creates an exact copy of this HatchBrush object.(Overrides Brush.Clone().)

System_CAPS_pubmethodCreateObjRef(Type)

Creates an object that contains all the relevant information required to generate a proxy used to communicate with a remote object.(Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodDispose()

Releases all resources used by this Brush object.(Inherited from Brush.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetLifetimeService()

Retrieves the current lifetime service object that controls the lifetime policy for this instance.(Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodInitializeLifetimeService()

Obtains a lifetime service object to control the lifetime policy for this instance.(Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)

System_CAPS_protmethodSetNativeBrush(IntPtr)

In a derived class, sets a reference to a GDI+ brush object. (Inherited from Brush.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

A hatch pattern is made from two colors: one defined by the BackgroundColor, which fills the background and one for the lines that form the pattern over the background defined by the ForegroundColor property. The HatchStyle property defines what type of pattern the brush has and can be any value from the HatchStyle enumeration. There are more than fifty elements in the HatchStyle enumeration.

The following illustration shows an ellipse filled with a horizontal hatch pattern.

Hatch Pattern

The following example shows how to create the HatchBrush shown in the previous illustration.

HatchBrush hBrush = new HatchBrush(
   HatchStyle.Horizontal,
   Color.Red,
   Color.FromArgb(255, 128, 255, 255));
e.Graphics.FillEllipse(hBrush, 0, 0, 100, 60);
