DrawStretched Method

Cursor.DrawStretched Method

Draws the cursor in a stretched format on the specified surface, within the specified bounds.

[Visual Basic]
Public Sub DrawStretched( _
   ByVal g As Graphics, _
   ByVal targetRect As Rectangle _
)
[C#]
public void DrawStretched(
 Graphics g,
 Rectangle targetRect
);
[C++]
public: void DrawStretched(
 Graphics* g,
 Rectangle targetRect
);
[JScript]
public function DrawStretched(
   g : Graphics,
 targetRect : Rectangle
);

Parameters

g
The Graphics surface on which to draw the Cursor.
targetRect
The Rectangle that represents the bounds of the Cursor.

Remarks

The drawing command originates on the graphics surface represented by the g parameter, but a Graphics object does not contain information about how to render a given image, so it passes the call to the Cursor object. The DrawStretched method stretches the image to fill the specified Rectangle when the cursor is drawn.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example draws the specified cursor on the form in its normal size, and in stretched mode, twice its size. This example assumes that you have a Form and a Cursor object to pass into the method when it is called.

[Visual Basic] 
Private Sub DrawCursorsOnForm(cursor As Cursor)
   ' If the form's cursor is not the Hand cursor and the 
   ' Current cursor is the Default, Draw the specified 
   ' cursor on the form in normal size and twice normal size. 
   If (Not Me.Cursor.Equals(Cursors.Hand)) And _
     Cursor.Current.Equals(Cursors.Default) Then

      ' Draw the cursor stretched.
      Dim graphics As Graphics = Me.CreateGraphics()
      Dim rectangle As New Rectangle(New Point(10, 10), _
        New Size(cursor.Size.Width * 2, cursor.Size.Height * 2))
      cursor.DrawStretched(graphics, rectangle)
     
      ' Draw the cursor in normal size.
      rectangle.Location = New Point(rectangle.Width + _
        rectangle.Location.X, rectangle.Height + rectangle.Location.Y)
      rectangle.Size = cursor.Size
      cursor.Draw(graphics, rectangle)

      ' Dispose of the cursor.
      cursor.Dispose()
   End If
End Sub

[C#] 
private void DrawCursorsOnForm(Cursor cursor)
{
   // If the form's cursor is not the Hand cursor and the 
   // Current cursor is the Default, Draw the specified 
   // cursor on the form in normal size and twice normal size.
   if(this.Cursor != Cursors.Hand & 
     Cursor.Current == Cursors.Default)
   {
      // Draw the cursor stretched.
      Graphics graphics = this.CreateGraphics();
      Rectangle rectangle = new Rectangle(
        new Point(10,10), new Size(cursor.Size.Width * 2, 
        cursor.Size.Height * 2));
      cursor.DrawStretched(graphics, rectangle);
        
      // Draw the cursor in normal size.
      rectangle.Location = new Point(
      rectangle.Width + rectangle.Location.X, 
        rectangle.Height + rectangle.Location.Y);
      rectangle.Size = cursor.Size;
      cursor.Draw(graphics, rectangle);

      // Dispose of the cursor.
      cursor.Dispose();
   }
}

[C++] 
private:
   void DrawCursorsOnForm(System::Windows::Forms::Cursor* cursor) {
      // If the form's cursor is not the Hand cursor and the
      // Current cursor is the Default, Draw the specified
      // cursor on the form in normal size and twice normal size.
      if (this->Cursor != Cursors::Hand &&
         System::Windows::Forms::Cursor::Current == Cursors::Default) {
            // Draw the cursor stretched.
            Graphics* graphics = this->CreateGraphics();
            Rectangle rectangle =  Rectangle( Point(10, 10),  System::Drawing::Size(cursor->Size.Width * 2,
               cursor->Size.Height * 2));
            cursor->DrawStretched(graphics, rectangle);

            // Draw the cursor in normal size.
            rectangle.Location =  Point(rectangle.Width + rectangle.Location.X,
               rectangle.Height + rectangle.Location.Y);
            rectangle.Size = cursor->Size;
            cursor->Draw(graphics, rectangle);

            // Dispose of the cursor.
            cursor->Dispose();
         }
   }
