  • Creates a solid blue brush.

  • Creates a rectangle.

  • Creates a rectangular region.

  • Fills the rectangular region on the screen.

private void FillRegionRectangle(PaintEventArgs e)

    // Create solid brush.
    SolidBrush blueBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.Blue);

    // Create rectangle for region.
    Rectangle fillRect = new Rectangle(100, 100, 200, 200);

    // Create region for fill.
    Region fillRegion = new Region(fillRect);

    // Fill region to screen.
