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 performs the following actions:

  • Creates an icon from a standard Windows icon file SampIcon.ico in the example folder.

  • Creates the coordinates of the upper-left corner at which to draw the icon.

  • Draws the icon to the screen.

The drawn icon is unscaled.

private:
   void DrawIconInt( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {

      // Create icon.
      System::Drawing::Icon^ newIcon = gcnew System::Drawing::Icon( "SampIcon.ico" );

      // Create coordinates for upper-left corner of icon.
      int x = 100;
      int y = 100;

      // Draw icon to screen.
      e->Graphics->DrawIcon( newIcon, x, y );
   }
private void DrawIconInt(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Create icon.
    Icon newIcon = new Icon("SampIcon.ico");
             
    // Create coordinates for upper-left corner of icon.
    int x = 100;
    int y = 100;
             
    // Draw icon to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawIcon(newIcon, x, y);
}
Private Sub DrawIconInt(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create icon.
    Dim newIcon As New Icon("SampIcon.ico")

    ' Create coordinates for upper-left corner of icon.
    Dim x As Integer = 100
    Dim y As Integer = 100

    ' Draw icon to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawIcon(newIcon, x, y)
End Sub

DrawIcon(Icon, Rectangle) DrawIcon(Icon, Rectangle) DrawIcon(Icon, Rectangle)

Draws the image represented by the specified Icon within the area specified by a Rectangle structure.

public:
 void DrawIcon(System::Drawing::Icon ^ icon, System::Drawing::Rectangle targetRect);
public void DrawIcon (System.Drawing.Icon icon, System.Drawing.Rectangle targetRect);
member this.DrawIcon : System.Drawing.Icon * System.Drawing.Rectangle -> unit

Parameters

icon

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 performs the following actions:

  • Creates an icon from a standard Windows icon file SampIcon.ico in the example folder.

  • Creates a rectangle in which to draw the icon.

  • Draws the icon to the screen.

The position of the rectangle locates the icon on the screen, and the size of the rectangle determines the scaling of the drawn icon.

private:
   void DrawIconRectangle( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      // Create icon.
      System::Drawing::Icon^ newIcon = gcnew System::Drawing::Icon( "SampIcon.ico" );

      // Create rectangle for icon.
      Rectangle rect = Rectangle(100,100,200,200);

      // Draw icon to screen.
      e->Graphics->DrawIcon( newIcon, rect );
   }
private void DrawIconRectangle(PaintEventArgs e)
{        
    // Create icon.
    Icon newIcon = new Icon("SampIcon.ico");
             
    // Create rectangle for icon.
    Rectangle rect = new Rectangle(100, 100, 200, 200);
             
    // Draw icon to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawIcon(newIcon, rect);
}
Private Sub DrawIconRectangle(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create icon.
    Dim newIcon As New Icon("SampIcon.ico")

    ' Create rectangle for icon.
    Dim rect As New Rectangle(100, 100, 200, 200)

    ' Draw icon to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawIcon(newIcon, rect)
End Sub
