Examples

The following example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, an Paint event object. The code performs the following actions:

Public Sub CloneExample(e As PaintEventArgs)  
 Dim points As Point() = New Point(- 5, - 5) New Point(0, 0) _  
 New Point(5, - 5)  
 Dim capPath As New GraphicsPath()  
 ' Create a Path and add two lines to it,  
 ' forming a custom line cap.  
 capPath.AddLines(points)  
 ' Create a CustomLineCap object.  
 Dim firstCap As New CustomLineCap(Nothing, capPath)  
 ' Create a copy of firstCap.  
 Dim secondCap As CustomLineCap = CType(firstCap.Clone(), _  
 CustomLineCap)  
 ' Create a Pen object.  
 Dim pen As New Pen(Color.Black, 3F)  
 'Set up the line.  
 Dim point1 As New Point(20, 20)  
 Dim point2 As New Point(100, 100)  
 ' Set up the caps.  
 pen.CustomStartCap = firstCap  
 pen.CustomEndCap = secondCap  
 ' Draw the line and caps to the screen.  
 e.Graphics.DrawLine(pen, point1, point2)  
 End Sub  
private void CloneExample(PaintEventArgs e)  
 {  
 // Create a Path and add two lines to it,  
 // forming a custom line cap.  
 Point[] points =  
 {  
 new Point(-5, -5),  
 new Point(0, 0),  
 new Point(5, -5)  
 };  
 GraphicsPath capPath = new GraphicsPath();  
 capPath.AddLines(points);  
 // Create a CustomLineCap object.  
 CustomLineCap firstCap = new CustomLineCap(null, capPath);  
 // Create a copy of firstCap.  
 CustomLineCap secondCap = (CustomLineCap)firstCap.Clone();  
 // Create a Pen object.  
 Pen pen = new Pen(Color.Black, 3.0f);  
 // Set up the line.  
 Point point1 = new Point(20, 20);  
 Point point2 = new Point(100, 100);  
 // Set up the caps.  
 pen.CustomStartCap = firstCap;  
 pen.CustomEndCap = secondCap;  
 // Draw the line and caps to the screen.  
 e.Graphics.DrawLine(pen, point1, point2);  
 }
