Examples

The following code example demonstrates using a Matrix and the Transform method to rotate a string. This example is designed to be used with Windows Forms. Create a form and paste the following code into it. Call the DrawVerticalStringFromBottomUp method in the form's Paint event handler, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

private:
   void DrawVerticalStringFromBottomUp( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      // Create the string to draw on the form.
      String^ text = "Can you read this?";

      // Create a GraphicsPath.
      System::Drawing::Drawing2D::GraphicsPath^ path = gcnew System::Drawing::Drawing2D::GraphicsPath;

      // Add the string to the path; declare the font, font style, size, and
      // vertical format for the string.
      path->AddString( text, this->Font->FontFamily, 1, 15, PointF(0.0F,0.0F), gcnew StringFormat( StringFormatFlags::DirectionVertical ) );

      // Declare a matrix that will be used to rotate the text.
      System::Drawing::Drawing2D::Matrix^ rotateMatrix = gcnew System::Drawing::Drawing2D::Matrix;

      // Set the rotation angle and starting point for the text.
      rotateMatrix->RotateAt( 180.0F, PointF(10.0F,100.0F) );

      // Transform the text with the matrix.
      path->Transform(rotateMatrix);

      // Set the SmoothingMode to high quality for best readability.
      e->Graphics->SmoothingMode = System::Drawing::Drawing2D::SmoothingMode::HighQuality;

      // Fill in the path to draw the string.
      e->Graphics->FillPath( Brushes::Red, path );

      // Dispose of the path.
      delete path;
   }
public void DrawVerticalStringFromBottomUp(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    // Create the string to draw on the form.
    string text = "Can you read this?";

    // Create a GraphicsPath.
    System.Drawing.Drawing2D.GraphicsPath path = 
        new System.Drawing.Drawing2D.GraphicsPath();

    // Add the string to the path; declare the font, font style, size, and
    // vertical format for the string.
    path.AddString(text, this.Font.FontFamily, 1, 15, 
        new PointF(0.0F, 0.0F), 
        new StringFormat(StringFormatFlags.DirectionVertical));

    // Declare a matrix that will be used to rotate the text.

    // Set the rotation angle and starting point for the text.
    rotateMatrix.RotateAt(180.0F, new PointF(10.0F, 100.0F));

    // Transform the text with the matrix.
    path.Transform(rotateMatrix);

    // Set the SmoothingMode to high quality for best readability.
    e.Graphics.SmoothingMode = 
        System.Drawing.Drawing2D.SmoothingMode.HighQuality;

    // Fill in the path to draw the string.
    e.Graphics.FillPath(Brushes.Red, path);

    // Dispose of the path.
    path.Dispose();

}
Public Sub DrawVerticalStringFromBottomUp(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create the string to draw on the form.
    Dim text As String = "Can you read this?"

    ' Create a GraphicsPath.
    Dim path As New System.Drawing.Drawing2D.GraphicsPath

    ' Add the string to the path; declare the font, font style, size, and

Examples

The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, an Paint event object. The code performs the following actions:

  • Draws a rectangle to the screen prior to applying a rotation transform (the blue rectangle).

  • Creates a matrix and rotates it 45 degrees around a specified point.

  • Applies this matrix transform is to the rectangle.

  • Draws the transformed rectangle to the screen (the red rectangle).

Notice that the red rectangle has been rotated around the upper left-hand corner of the rectangle (the rotation point specified the RotateAt method).

public:
   void RotateAtExample( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      Pen^ myPen = gcnew Pen( Color::Blue,1.0f );
      Pen^ myPen2 = gcnew Pen( Color::Red,1.0f );
      PointF rotatePoint = PointF(150.0f,50.0f);

      // Draw the rectangle to the screen before applying the
      // transform.
      e->Graphics->DrawRectangle( myPen, 150, 50, 200, 100 );

      // Create a matrix and rotate it 45 degrees.
      Matrix^ myMatrix = gcnew Matrix;
      myMatrix->RotateAt( 45, rotatePoint, MatrixOrder::Append );

      // Draw the rectangle to the screen again after applying the
      // transform.
      e->Graphics->Transform = myMatrix;
      e->Graphics->DrawRectangle( myPen2, 150, 50, 200, 100 );
   }
public void RotateAtExample(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    Pen myPen = new Pen(Color.Blue, 1);
    Pen myPen2 = new Pen(Color.Red, 1);
    PointF rotatePoint = new PointF(150.0f, 50.0f);
             
    // Draw the rectangle to the screen before applying the
    // transform.
    e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(myPen, 150, 50, 200, 100);
             
    // Create a matrix and rotate it 45 degrees.
    Matrix myMatrix = new Matrix();
    myMatrix.RotateAt(45, rotatePoint, MatrixOrder.Append);
             
    // Draw the rectangle to the screen again after applying the
    // transform.
    e.Graphics.Transform = myMatrix;
    e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(myPen2, 150, 50, 200, 100);
}
Public Sub RotateAtExample(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)
    Dim myPen As New Pen(Color.Blue, 1)
    Dim myPen2 As New Pen(Color.Red, 1)
    Dim rotatePoint As New PointF(150.0F, 50.0F)

    ' Draw the rectangle to the screen before applying the
    ' transform.
    e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(myPen, 150, 50, 200, 100)

    ' Create a matrix and rotate it 45 degrees.
    Dim myMatrix As New Matrix
    myMatrix.RotateAt(45, rotatePoint, MatrixOrder.Append)

    ' Draw the rectangle to the screen again after applying the
    ' transform.
    e.Graphics.Transform = myMatrix
    e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(myPen2, 150, 50, 200, 100)
