HatchBrush Class

Definition

Defines a rectangular brush with a hatch style, a foreground color, and a background color. This class cannot be inherited.

public ref class HatchBrush sealed : System::Drawing::Brush
public sealed class HatchBrush : System.Drawing.Brush
type HatchBrush = class
    inherit Brush
Public NotInheritable Class HatchBrush
Inherits Brush

Examples

The following example shows how to create the HatchBrush shown in the previous illustration.

HatchBrush hBrush = new HatchBrush(
   HatchStyle.Horizontal,
   Color.Red,
   Color.FromArgb(255, 128, 255, 255));
e.Graphics.FillEllipse(hBrush, 0, 0, 100, 60);
Dim hBrush As New HatchBrush( _
   HatchStyle.Horizontal, _
   Color.Red, _
   Color.FromArgb(255, 128, 255, 255))
e.Graphics.FillEllipse(hBrush, 0, 0, 100, 60)

Remarks

A hatch pattern is made from two colors: one defined by the BackgroundColor, which fills the background and one for the lines that form the pattern over the background defined by the ForegroundColor property. The HatchStyle property defines what type of pattern the brush has and can be any value from the HatchStyle enumeration. There are more than fifty elements in the HatchStyle enumeration.

The following illustration shows an ellipse filled with a horizontal hatch pattern.
