The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code performs the following actions:

  • Creates an icon from a standard Windows icon file SampIcon.ico in the example folder.

  • Creates a rectangle in which to draw the icon.

  • Draws the icon to the screen.

The position of the rectangle locates the icon on the screen, and the drawn icon is unscaled and unclipped.

   void DrawIconUnstretchedRectangle( PaintEventArgs^ e )

      // Create icon.
      System::Drawing::Icon^ newIcon = gcnew System::Drawing::Icon( "SampIcon.ico" );

      // Create rectangle for icon.
      Rectangle rect = Rectangle(100,100,200,200);

      // Draw icon to screen.
      e->Graphics->DrawIconUnstretched( newIcon, rect );
private void DrawIconUnstretchedRectangle(PaintEventArgs e)
    // Create icon.
    Icon newIcon = new Icon("SampIcon.ico");
    // Create rectangle for icon.
    Rectangle rect = new Rectangle(100, 100, 200, 200);
    // Draw icon to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawIconUnstretched(newIcon, rect);
Private Sub DrawIconUnstretchedRectangle(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create icon.
    Dim newIcon As New Icon("SampIcon.ico")

    ' Create rectangle for icon.
    Dim rect As New Rectangle(100, 100, 200, 200)

    ' Draw icon to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawIconUnstretched(newIcon, rect)
End Sub
