## Definition

Rotates the local geometric transform by the specified amount. This method prepends the rotation to the transform.

 Rotates the local geometric transform by the specified amount. This method prepends the rotation to the transform. Rotates the local geometric transform by the specified amount in the specified order.

## RotateTransform(Single)

Rotates the local geometric transform by the specified amount. This method prepends the rotation to the transform.

``````public:
void RotateTransform(float angle);``````
``public void RotateTransform (float angle);``
``member this.RotateTransform : single -> unit``
``Public Sub RotateTransform (angle As Single)``

#### Parameters

angle
Single

The angle of rotation.

### Examples

For an example, see RotateTransform.

## RotateTransform(Single, MatrixOrder)

Rotates the local geometric transform by the specified amount in the specified order.

``````public:
void RotateTransform(float angle, System::Drawing::Drawing2D::MatrixOrder order);``````
``public void RotateTransform (float angle, System.Drawing.Drawing2D.MatrixOrder order);``
``member this.RotateTransform : single * System.Drawing.Drawing2D.MatrixOrder -> unit``
``Public Sub RotateTransform (angle As Single, order As MatrixOrder)``

#### Parameters

angle
Single

The angle of rotation.

order
MatrixOrder

A MatrixOrder that specifies whether to append or prepend the rotation matrix.

### Examples

The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgs`e`, an OnPaint event object. The code

Notice that the gradient of the lower ellipse is at a 45 degree angle to the x-axis of the top ellipse. Also notice that a call to the TranslateTransform method is used to justify the left edge of the gradient fill with the left edge of the lower ellipse.
