public:
 int NextSubpath(System::Drawing::Drawing2D::GraphicsPath ^ path, [Runtime::InteropServices::Out] bool % isClosed);
public int NextSubpath (System.Drawing.Drawing2D.GraphicsPath path, out bool isClosed);
member this.NextSubpath : System.Drawing.Drawing2D.GraphicsPath *  -> int
Public Function NextSubpath (path As GraphicsPath, ByRef isClosed As Boolean) As Integer

Parameters

path
GraphicsPath GraphicsPath GraphicsPath GraphicsPath

A GraphicsPath that is to have its data points set to match the data points of the retrieved figure (subpath) for this iterator.

isClosed
Boolean Boolean Boolean Boolean

[out] Indicates whether the current subpath is closed. It is true if the if the figure is closed, otherwise it is false.

Returns

The number of data points in the retrieved figure (subpath). If there are no more figures to retrieve, zero is returned.

Examples

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

  • Creates a GraphicsPath object.

  • Adds three lines, a rectangle, an ellipse, and two markers.

  • Lists the values of all the path's points to the left side of the screen.

  • Creates a GraphicsPathIterator object.

  • Creates a GraphicsPath object, myPathSection, to receive copied points.

  • Calls the NextSubpath method, which iterates to the third subpath (figure) and copies all the points contained in that subpath to the myPathSection path, and also returns the number of points copied to subpathPoints.

  • Lists the subpath number and number of points it contains to the right side of the screen.

Examples

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

  • Creates a GraphicsPath object.

  • Adds three lines, a rectangle, and an ellipse.

  • Draws the values for the array of points to the screen.

  • Creates a GraphicsPathIterator object.

  • Calls the NextSubpath method.

  • Uses the values returned from the iterative calls to NextSubpath to draw the start and stop values for each subpath to the screen.

  • Draws the value for the total number of subpaths to the screen.
