Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgs e, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code performs the following actions:

  • Creates a black pen.
  • Creates the position and size of a rectangle to bound an ellipse.
  • Draws the ellipse to the screen.
[Visual Basic, C#] Note   This example shows how to use one of the overloaded versions of DrawEllipse. For other examples that might be available, see the individual overload topics.
[Visual Basic] 
Public Sub DrawEllipseFloat(e As PaintEventArgs)
' Create pen.
Dim blackPen As New Pen(Color.Black, 3)
' Create location and size of ellipse.
Dim x As Single = 0F
Dim y As Single = 0F
Dim width As Single = 200F
Dim height As Single = 100F
' Draw ellipse to screen.
e.Graphics.DrawEllipse(blackPen, x, y, width, height)
End Sub
        
[C#] 
public void DrawEllipseFloat(PaintEventArgs e)
{
// Create pen.
Pen blackPen = new Pen(Color.Black, 3);
// Create location and size of ellipse.
float x = 0.0F;
float y = 0.0F;
float width = 200.0F;
float height = 100.0F;
// Draw ellipse to screen.
e.Graphics.DrawEllipse(blackPen, x, y, width, height);
}
