Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the PageScale and TranslateTransform members to change the scale and origin when you draw a rectangle.

This example is designed to be used with Windows Forms. Paste the code into a form and call the ChangePageScaleAndTranslateTransform method when handling the form's Paint event, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

private:
   void ChangePageScaleAndTranslateTransform( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      // Create a rectangle.
      Rectangle rectangle1 = Rectangle(20,20,50,100);

      // Draw its outline.
      e->Graphics->DrawRectangle( Pens::SlateBlue, rectangle1 );

      // Change the page scale.  
      e->Graphics->PageScale = 2.0F;

      // Call TranslateTransform to change the origin of the
      //  Graphics object.
      e->Graphics->TranslateTransform( 10.0F, 10.0F );

      // Draw the rectangle again.
      e->Graphics->DrawRectangle( Pens::Tomato, rectangle1 );

      // Set the page scale and origin back to their original values.
      e->Graphics->PageScale = 1.0F;
      e->Graphics->ResetTransform();
      SolidBrush^ transparentBrush = gcnew SolidBrush( Color::FromArgb( 50, Color::Yellow ) );

      // Create a new rectangle with the coordinates you expect
      // after setting PageScale and calling TranslateTransform:
      // x = (10 + 20) * 2
      // y = (10 + 20) * 2
      // Width = 50 * 2
      // Length = 100 * 2
      Rectangle newRectangle = Rectangle(60,60,100,200);

      // Fill in the rectangle with a semi-transparent color.
      e->Graphics->FillRectangle( transparentBrush, newRectangle );
   }
private void ChangePageScaleAndTranslateTransform(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    // Create a rectangle.
    Rectangle rectangle1 = new Rectangle(20, 20, 50, 100);

    // Draw its outline.
    e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(Pens.SlateBlue, rectangle1);

    // Change the page scale.  
    e.Graphics.PageScale = 2.0F;

    // Call TranslateTransform to change the origin of the
    //  Graphics object.
    e.Graphics.TranslateTransform(10.0F, 10.0F);

    // Draw the rectangle again.
    e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(Pens.Tomato, rectangle1);

    // Set the page scale and origin back to their original values.
    e.Graphics.PageScale = 1.0F;
    e.Graphics.ResetTransform();

    SolidBrush transparentBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.FromArgb(50,
        Color.Yellow));

    // Create a new rectangle with the coordinates you expect
    // after setting PageScale and calling TranslateTransform:
    // x = (10 + 20) * 2
    // y = (10 + 20) * 2
    // Width = 50 * 2
    // Length = 100 * 2
    Rectangle newRectangle = new Rectangle(60, 60, 100, 200);

    // Fill in the rectangle with a semi-transparent color.
    e.Graphics.FillRectangle(transparentBrush, newRectangle);
}
Private Sub ChangePageScaleAndTranslateTransform(ByVal e As _
    PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create a rectangle.
    Dim rectangle1 As New Rectangle(20, 20, 50, 100)

    ' Draw its outline.
