ID2D1RenderTarget::DrawRectangle method

Draws the outline of a rectangle that has the specified dimensions and stroke style.

Syntax


void DrawRectangle(
  [ref]          const D2D1_RECT_F      &rect,
  [in]                 ID2D1Brush       *brush,
                       FLOAT            strokeWidth = 1.0f,
  [in, optional]       ID2D1StrokeStyle *strokeStyle = NULL
);

Parameters

rect [ref]

Type: const D2D1_RECT_F

The dimensions of the rectangle to draw, in device-independent pixels.

brush [in]

Type: ID2D1Brush*

The brush used to paint the rectangle's stroke.

strokeWidth

Type: FLOAT

The width of the stroke, in device-independent pixels. The value must be greater than or equal to 0.0f. If this parameter isn't specified, it defaults to 1.0f. The stroke is centered on the line.

strokeStyle [in, optional]

Type: ID2D1StrokeStyle*

The style of stroke to paint, or NULL to paint a solid stroke.

Return value

This method does not return a value.

Remarks

When this method fails, it does not return an error code. To determine whether a drawing method (such as DrawRectangle) failed, check the result returned by the ID2D1RenderTarget::EndDraw or ID2D1RenderTarget::Flush method.

Examples

The following example uses an ID2D1HwndRenderTarget to draw and fill several rectangles. This example produces the output shown in the following illustration.
