How to: Create a Solid Brush

This example creates a SolidBrush object that can be used by a Graphics object for filling shapes.

System.Drawing.SolidBrush myBrush = new System.Drawing.SolidBrush(System.Drawing.Color.Red);
System.Drawing.Graphics formGraphics;
formGraphics = this.CreateGraphics();
formGraphics.FillEllipse(myBrush, new Rectangle(0, 0, 200, 300));

After you have finished using them, you should call Dispose on objects that consume system resources, such as brush objects.
