The following example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code performs the following actions:

  • Creates a rectangle and draw its to the screen in black.

  • Creates a region using the rectangle.

  • Gets the RegionData.

  • Draws the region data (an array of bytes) to the screen, by using the DisplayRegionData helper function.

Public Sub GetRegionDataExample(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create the first rectangle and draw it to the screen in black.
    Dim regionRect As New Rectangle(20, 20, 100, 100)
    e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(Pens.Black, regionRect)

    ' Create a region using the first rectangle.
    Dim myRegion As New [Region](regionRect)

    ' Get the RegionData for this region.
    Dim myRegionData As RegionData = myRegion.GetRegionData()
    Dim myRegionDataLength As Integer = myRegionData.Data.Length
    DisplayRegionData(e, myRegionDataLength, myRegionData)
End Sub

' Helper Function for GetRegionData.
Public Sub DisplayRegionData(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs, ByVal len As Integer, _
ByVal dat As RegionData)

    ' Display the result.
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim x As Single = 20
    Dim y As Single = 140
    Dim myFont As New Font("Arial", 8)
    Dim myBrush As New SolidBrush(Color.Black)
    e.Graphics.DrawString("myRegionData = ", myFont, myBrush, _
    New PointF(x, y))
    y = 160
    For i = 0 To len - 1
        If x > 300 Then
            y += 20
            x = 20
        End If
        e.Graphics.DrawString(dat.Data(i).ToString(), myFont, _
        myBrush, New PointF(x, y))
        x += 30
    Next i
End Sub

public void GetRegionDataExample(PaintEventArgs e)
    // Create a rectangle and draw it to the screen in black.
    Rectangle regionRect = new Rectangle(20, 20, 100, 100);

    e.get_Graphics().DrawRectangle(Pens.get_Black(), regionRect);

    // Create a region using the first rectangle.
    Region myRegion = new Region(regionRect);

    // Get the RegionData for this region.
    RegionData myRegionData = myRegion.GetRegionData();
    int myRegionDataLength = myRegionData.get_Data().length;

    DisplayRegionData(e, myRegionDataLength, myRegionData);

    // Display the result.
    int i;
    float x = 20;
    float y = 140;
    Font myFont = new Font("Arial", 8);
    SolidBrush myBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.get_Black());

    e.get_Graphics().DrawString("myRegionData = ", myFont, myBrush, 
        new PointF(x, y));
    y = 160;
    for (i = 0; i < len; i++) {
        if (x > 300) {
            y += 20;
            x = 20;

            myFont, myBrush, new PointF(x, y));
        x += 30;
