Examples

The following code example demonstrates the how to use a member of the Brushes class to fill a Rectangle. 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 InstanceRectangleIntersection( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      Rectangle rectangle1 = Rectangle(50,50,200,100);
      Rectangle rectangle2 = Rectangle(70,20,100,200);
      e->Graphics->DrawRectangle( Pens::Black, rectangle1 );
      e->Graphics->DrawRectangle( Pens::Red, rectangle2 );
      if ( rectangle1.IntersectsWith( rectangle2 ) )
      {
         rectangle1.Intersect( rectangle2 );
         if (  !rectangle1.IsEmpty )
         {
            e->Graphics->FillRectangle( Brushes::Green, rectangle1 );
         }
      }
   }
private void InstanceRectangleIntersection(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    Rectangle rectangle1 = new Rectangle(50, 50, 200, 100);
    Rectangle rectangle2 = new Rectangle(70, 20, 100, 200);

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

    if (rectangle1.IntersectsWith(rectangle2))
    {
        rectangle1.Intersect(rectangle2);
        if (!rectangle1.IsEmpty)
        {
            e.Graphics.FillRectangle(Brushes.Green, rectangle1);
        }
    }
}
  Private Sub InstanceRectangleIntersection( _
      ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

      Dim rectangle1 As New Rectangle(50, 50, 200, 100)
      Dim rectangle2 As New Rectangle(70, 20, 100, 200)

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

      If (rectangle1.IntersectsWith(rectangle2)) Then
          rectangle1.Intersect(rectangle2)
          If Not (rectangle1.IsEmpty) Then
              e.Graphics.FillRectangle(Brushes.Green, rectangle1)
          End If
      End If
  End Sub

Remarks

The Brushes class contains static read-only properties that return a Brush object of the color indicated by the property name. You typically do not have to explicitly dispose of the brush returned by a property in this class, unless it is used to construct a new brush. For more information about the colors represented by the brushes in this class, see Colors by Name.
