Examples

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 gets the color of a pixel in a bitmap, and then fills a rectangle with that color.

private:
   void GetPixel_Example( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      // Create a Bitmap object from an image file.
      Bitmap^ myBitmap = gcnew Bitmap( "Grapes.jpg" );

      // Get the color of a pixel within myBitmap.
      Color pixelColor = myBitmap->GetPixel( 50, 50 );

      // Fill a rectangle with pixelColor.
      SolidBrush^ pixelBrush = gcnew SolidBrush( pixelColor );
      e->Graphics->FillRectangle( pixelBrush, 0, 0, 100, 100 );
   }
private void GetPixel_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    // Create a Bitmap object from an image file.
    Bitmap myBitmap = new Bitmap("Grapes.jpg");

    // Get the color of a pixel within myBitmap.
    Color pixelColor = myBitmap.GetPixel(50, 50);

    // Fill a rectangle with pixelColor.
    SolidBrush pixelBrush = new SolidBrush(pixelColor);
    e.Graphics.FillRectangle(pixelBrush, 0, 0, 100, 100);
}
Private Sub GetPixel_Example(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create a Bitmap object from an image file.
    Dim myBitmap As New Bitmap("Grapes.jpg")

    ' Get the color of a pixel within myBitmap.
    Dim pixelColor As Color = myBitmap.GetPixel(50, 50)

    ' Fill a rectangle with pixelColor.
    Dim pixelBrush As New SolidBrush(pixelColor)
    e.Graphics.FillRectangle(pixelBrush, 0, 0, 100, 100)
End Sub
