Fills the interior of an ellipse defined by a bounding rectangle specified by a pair of coordinates, a width, and a height.

``````public:
void FillEllipse(System::Drawing::Brush ^ brush, int x, int y, int width, int height);``````
``public void FillEllipse (System.Drawing.Brush brush, int x, int y, int width, int height);``
``member this.FillEllipse : System.Drawing.Brush * int * int * int * int -> unit``

#### Parameters

brush
Brush

Brush that determines the characteristics of the fill.

x
Int32

The x-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

y
Int32

The y-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

width
Int32

Width of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

height
Int32

Height of the bounding rectangle that defines the ellipse.

#### Exceptions

`brush` is `null`.

### Examples

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

• Creates a solid red brush.

• Creates the location and size of a rectangle that bounds an ellipse.

• Fills the ellipse on the screen.

``````public:
void FillEllipseInt( PaintEventArgs^ e )
{
// Create solid brush.
SolidBrush^ redBrush = gcnew SolidBrush( Color::Red );

// Create location and size of ellipse.
int x = 0;
int y = 0;
int width = 200;
int height = 100;

// Fill ellipse on screen.
e->Graphics->FillEllipse( redBrush, x, y, width, height );
}
``````
``````public void FillEllipseInt(PaintEventArgs e)
{

// Create solid brush.
SolidBrush redBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.Red);

// Create location and size of ellipse.
int x = 0;
int y = 0;
int width = 200;
int height = 100;

// Fill ellipse on screen.
e.Graphics.FillEllipse(redBrush, x, y, width, height);
}
``````
``````Public Sub FillEllipseInt(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

' Create solid brush.
Dim redBrush As New SolidBrush(Color.Red)

' Create location and size of ellipse.
Dim x As Integer = 0
Dim y As Integer = 0
Dim width As Integer = 200
Dim height As Integer = 100

' Fill ellipse on screen.
e.Graphics.FillEllipse(redBrush, x, y, width, height)
End Sub
``````

### Remarks

This method fills the interior of an ellipse with a Brush. The ellipse is defined by the bounding rectangle represented by the `x`, `y`, `width`, and `height` parameters.

// Create location and size of ellipse.
float x = 0.0F;
float y = 0.0F;

// Create location and size of ellipse.
float x = 0.0F;
float y = 0.0F;
float width = 200.0F;
float height = 100.0F;

// Fill ellipse on screen.
e.Graphics.FillEllipse(redBrush, x, y, width, height);
}
``````
``````Public Sub FillEllipseFloat(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

' Create solid brush.
Dim redBrush As New SolidBrush(Color.Red)
