LinearGradientBrush.Clone Method

Definition

Creates an exact copy of this LinearGradientBrush.

public:
 override System::Object ^ Clone();
public override object Clone ();
override this.Clone : unit -> obj
Public Overrides Function Clone () As Object

Returns

The LinearGradientBrush this method creates, cast as an object.

Examples

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

  • Creates a new LinearGradientBrush.

  • Draws an ellipse to the screen using this brush.

  • Clones the LinearGradientBrush (clonedLGBrush).

  • Draws an ellipse to the screen directly below the first ellipse, using the cloned brush.

      Rectangle myRect = Rectangle(x,y,w,h);
      LinearGradientBrush^ myLGBrush = gcnew LinearGradientBrush( myRect,Color::Blue,Color::Aquamarine,45.0f,true );

      // Draw an ellipse to the screen using the LinearGradientBrush.
      e->Graphics->FillEllipse( myLGBrush, x, y, w, h );

      // Clone the LinearGradientBrush.
      LinearGradientBrush^ clonedLGBrush = dynamic_cast<LinearGradientBrush^>(myLGBrush->Clone());

      // left edge of the ellipse.
