  • Creates a black pen.

  • Draws the graphics path to the screen.


public void DrawPathEllipse(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    // Create graphics path object and add ellipse.
    GraphicsPath graphPath = new GraphicsPath();
    graphPath.AddEllipse(0, 0, 200, 100);

    // Create pen.
    Pen blackPen = new Pen(Color.Black, 3);

    // Draw graphics path to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawPath(blackPen, graphPath);
