Public ReadOnly Property ClipRectangle As Rectangle

Property Value


The Rectangle in which to paint.


The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the Control.Paint event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of a type that inherits from Control, such as a Button or ComboBox. Then name the instance Control1 and ensure that the event handler is associated with the Control.Paint event.

private void Control1_Paint(Object sender, PaintEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ClipRectangle", e.ClipRectangle );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Graphics", e.Graphics );
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "Paint Event" );
Private Sub Control1_Paint(sender as Object, e as PaintEventArgs) _ 
     Handles Control1.Paint

    Dim messageBoxVB as New System.Text.StringBuilder()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ClipRectangle", e.ClipRectangle)
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Graphics", e.Graphics)
    MessageBox.Show(messageBoxVB.ToString(),"Paint Event")

End Sub
