A GraphicsPath consists of a series of line and curve segments. If the path represented by the path parameter is not closed, an additional segment is added from the last point to the first point to close the path.

The following code 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 solid red brush.

  • Creates a graphics path object.

  • Adds an ellipse to the graphics path.

  • Fills the path on the screen.

Public Sub FillPathEllipse(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create solid brush. 
    Dim redBrush As New SolidBrush(Color.Red)

    ' Create graphics path object and add ellipse. 
    Dim graphPath As New GraphicsPath
    graphPath.AddEllipse(0, 0, 200, 100)

    ' Fill graphics path to screen.
    e.Graphics.FillPath(redBrush, graphPath)
End Sub
