public static Rectangle Intersect(
	Rectangle a,
	Rectangle b
)

Parameters

The following code example demonstrates the Intersect, IsEmpty and the IntersectsWith members. This example should be used with a Windows Form. Paste this code into a form and call this method when handling the form's Paint event, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

private void StaticRectangleIntersection(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    Rectangle rectangle1 = new Rectangle(50, 50, 200, 100);
    Rectangle rectangle2 = new Rectangle(70, 20, 100, 200);
    Rectangle rectangle3 = new Rectangle();

    e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(Pens.Black, rectangle1);
    e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(Pens.Red, rectangle2);

    if (rectangle1.IntersectsWith(rectangle2))
    {
        rectangle3 = Rectangle.Intersect(rectangle1, rectangle2);
        if (!rectangle3.IsEmpty)
        {
            e.Graphics.FillRectangle(Brushes.Green, rectangle3);
        }
    }
}
