Return Value

This method does not return a value.


[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 an icon from a standard Windows icon file SampIcon.ico in the example folder.
  • Creates a rectangle in which to draw the icon.
  • Draws the icon to the screen.

[Visual Basic, C#] The position of the rectangle locates the icon on the screen, and the drawn icon is unscaled and unclipped.

[Visual Basic] 
Public Sub DrawIconUnstretchedRectangle(e As PaintEventArgs)
' Create icon.
Dim newIcon As New Icon("SampIcon.ico")
' Create rectangle for icon.
Dim rect As New Rectangle(100, 100, 200, 200)
' Draw icon to screen.
e.Graphics.DrawIconUnstretched(newIcon, rect)
End Sub
public void DrawIconUnstretchedRectangle(PaintEventArgs e)
// Create icon.
Icon newIcon = new Icon("SampIcon.ico");
// Create rectangle for icon.
Rectangle rect = new Rectangle( 100, 100, 200, 200);
// Draw icon to screen.
e.Graphics.DrawIconUnstretched(newIcon, rect);
