DesignerGlyph.OnPaint Method

When overridden in a derived class, performs any tasks required to render the glyph on the activity designer surface.

Namespace:  System.Workflow.ComponentModel.Design
Assembly:  System.Workflow.ComponentModel (in System.Workflow.ComponentModel.dll)

Protected MustOverride Sub OnPaint ( _
	graphics As Graphics, _
	activated As Boolean, _
	ambientTheme As AmbientTheme, _
	designer As ActivityDesigner _
Dim graphics As Graphics 
Dim activated As Boolean 
Dim ambientTheme As AmbientTheme 
Dim designer As ActivityDesigner 

Me.OnPaint(graphics, activated, ambientTheme, _


Type: System.Drawing.Graphics

The Graphics to perform fill and drawing tasks.

Type: System.Boolean

true to indicate that the glyph appears on the design surface; otherwise, false.

Type: System.Workflow.ComponentModel.Design.AmbientTheme

The AmbientTheme to use to access ambient property settings.

Type: System.Workflow.ComponentModel.Design.ActivityDesigner

The ActivityDesigner from which to obtain information about user actions.

OnPaint uses CommentIndicatorPen to draw the bounds of the comment glyph and CommentIndicatorBrush to fill it.

The following code example demonstrates how you can override the OnPaint method. The code customizes how to draw the glyph object on the activity designer with which the glyph is associated.

This code example is part of the Workflow Monitor SDK Sample from the DesignerGlyphProvider.cs file. For more information, see Workflow Monitor.

Protected Overrides Sub OnPaint(ByVal graphics As System.Drawing.Graphics, ByVal activated As Boolean, ByVal ambientTheme As System.Workflow.ComponentModel.Design.AmbientTheme, ByVal designer As System.Workflow.ComponentModel.Design.ActivityDesigner)
    Dim bitmap As Bitmap = AppResources.Executing
    bitmap.MakeTransparent(Color.FromArgb(0, 255, 255))

    If Not bitmap Is Nothing Then
        graphics.DrawImage(bitmap, GetBounds(designer, activated), New Rectangle(Point.Empty, bitmap.Size), GraphicsUnit.Pixel)
    End If 
End Sub
