void MakeEmpty()

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Region constructor and MakeEmpty method. This example is designed to be used with Windows Forms. Create a form and paste the following code into it. Call the FillEmptyRegion method in the form's Paint event-handling method, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

   void FillEmptyRegion( PaintEventArgs^ e )
      // Create a region from a rectangle.
      Rectangle originalRectangle = Rectangle(40,40,40,50);
      System::Drawing::Region^ smallRegion = gcnew System::Drawing::Region( originalRectangle );

      // Call MakeEmpty.

      // Fill the region in red and draw the original rectangle
      // in black. Note there is nothing filled in.
      e->Graphics->FillRegion( Brushes::Red, smallRegion );
      e->Graphics->DrawRectangle( Pens::Black, originalRectangle );
