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 image from a JPEG file SampImag.jpg in the folder of the example.

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

  • Creates a source rectangle from which to extract a portion of the image.

  • Sets the unit of measure of the source rectangle to pixels.

  • Draws the image to the screen.

The size of the source rectangle determines what portion of the unscaled original image is drawn to the screen.

public:
   void DrawImage2FloatRectF( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      // Create image.
      Image^ newImage = Image::FromFile( "SampImag.jpg" );

      // Create coordinates for upper-left corner of image.
      float x = 100.0F;
      float y = 100.0F;

      // Create rectangle for source image.
      RectangleF srcRect = RectangleF(50.0F,50.0F,150.0F,150.0F);
      GraphicsUnit units = GraphicsUnit::Pixel;

      // Draw image to screen.
      e->Graphics->DrawImage( newImage, x, y, srcRect, units );
   }
public void DrawImage2FloatRectF(PaintEventArgs e)
{
             
    // Create image.
    Image newImage = Image.FromFile("SampImag.jpg");
             
    // Create coordinates for upper-left corner of image.
    float x = 100.0F;
    float y = 100.0F;
             
    // Create rectangle for source image.
    RectangleF srcRect = new RectangleF(50.0F, 50.0F, 150.0F, 150.0F);
    GraphicsUnit units = GraphicsUnit.Pixel;
             
    // Draw image to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawImage(newImage, x, y, srcRect, units);
}
Public Sub DrawImage2FloatRectF(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create image.
    Dim newImage As Image = Image.FromFile("SampImag.jpg")

    ' Create coordinates for upper-left corner of image.
    Dim x As Single = 100.0F
    Dim y As Single = 100.0F

    ' Create rectangle for source image.
    Dim srcRect As New RectangleF(50.0F, 50.0F, 150.0F, 150.0F)
    Dim units As GraphicsUnit = GraphicsUnit.Pixel

    ' Draw image to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawImage(newImage, x, y, srcRect, units)
End Sub

Remarks

An Image stores a value for pixel width and a value for horizontal resolution (dots per inch). The physical width, measured in inches, of an image is the pixel width divided by the horizontal resolution. For example, an image with a pixel width of 360 and a horizontal resolution of 72 dots per inch has a physical width of 5 inches. Similar remarks apply to pixel height and physical height.

This method draws a portion of an image using its physical size, so the image portion will have its correct size in inches regardless of the resolution (dots per inch) of the display device. For example, suppose an image portion has a pixel width of 216 and a horizontal resolution of 72 dots per inch. If you call this method to draw that image portion on a device that has a resolution of 96 dots per inch, the pixel width of the rendered image portion will be (216/72)*96 = 288.

member this.DrawImage : System.Drawing.Image * System.Drawing.Rectangle * single * single * single * single * System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit * System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageAttributes * System.Drawing.Graphics.DrawImageAbort * nativeint -> unit
Parameters
image
Image Image Image

Image to draw.

destRect
Rectangle Rectangle Rectangle

Rectangle structure that specifies the location and size of the drawn image. The image is scaled to fit the rectangle.

srcX
Single Single Single

The x-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the portion of the source image to draw.

srcY
Single Single Single

The y-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the portion of the source image to draw.

srcWidth
Single Single Single

Width of the portion of the source image to draw.

srcHeight
Single Single Single

Height of the portion of the source image to draw.

srcUnit
GraphicsUnit GraphicsUnit GraphicsUnit

Member of the GraphicsUnit enumeration that specifies the units of measure used to determine the source rectangle.

imageAttrs
ImageAttributes ImageAttributes ImageAttributes

ImageAttributes that specifies recoloring and gamma information for the image object.

callback

Graphics.DrawImageAbort delegate that specifies a method to call during the drawing of the image. This method is called frequently to check whether to stop execution of the DrawImage(Image, Rectangle, Single, Single, Single, Single, GraphicsUnit, ImageAttributes, Graphics+DrawImageAbort, IntPtr) method according to application-determined criteria.

callbackData
IntPtr IntPtr IntPtr

Value specifying additional data for the Graphics.DrawImageAbort delegate to use when checking whether to stop execution of the DrawImage method.

Exceptions

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 first defines a callback method for the Graphics.DrawImageAbort delegate; the definition is simplistic and merely tests to see whether the DrawImage method calls it with a null callBackData parameter. The main body of the example performs the following actions:

  • Creates an instance of the Graphics.DrawImageAbort callback method.

  • Creates an image from a JPEG file SampImag.jpg in the folder of the example.

  • Creates points that define a destination rectangle in which to draw the image.

  • Creates a source rectangle to select the portion of the image to draw.

  • Sets the graphics drawing unit to pixel.

  • Draws the original image to the screen.

  • Creates an additional destination rectangle in which to draw an adjusted image.

  • Creates and sets the attributes of the adjusted image to have a larger-than-usual gamma value.

  • Draws the adjusted image to the screen.

For the original, unadjusted destination rectangle, the position locates the image on the screen, and the size of the source rectangle and the size and shape of the destination rectangle determines the scaling of the drawn image.

Because this example uses an overload that passes a callBackData parameter, the Graphics.DrawImageAbort callback returns false, which causes the DrawImage method to continue, and the example draws the adjusted image to the screen.

   // Define DrawImageAbort callback method.

   bool DrawImageCallback8( IntPtr callBackData )

Remarks

The srcX, srcY, srcWidth, and srcHeight parameters specify a rectangular portion, of the image object to draw. The rectangle is relative to the upper-left corner of the source image. This portion is scaled to fit inside the rectangle specified by the destRect parameter.

This overload with the callback and callbackData parameters provides the means to stop the drawing of an image once it starts according to criteria and data determined by the application. For example, an application could start drawing a large image and the user might scroll the image off the screen, in which case the application could stop the drawing.

  • Draws the adjusted image to the screen.

For the original, unadjusted destination rectangle, the position locates the image on the screen, and the size of the source rectangle and the size and shape of the destination rectangle determines the scaling of the drawn image.

Because this example uses an overload that passes a callBackData parameter, the Graphics.DrawImageAbort callback returns false, which causes the DrawImage method to continue, and the example draws the adjusted image to the screen.

Remarks

The srcX, srcY, srcWidth, and srcHeight parameters specify a rectangular portion, of the image object to draw. The rectangle is relative to the upper-left corner of the source image. This portion is scaled to fit inside the rectangle specified by the destRect parameter.

This overload with the callback and callbackData parameters provides the means to stop the drawing of an image once it starts according to criteria and data determined by the application. For example, an application could start drawing a large image and the user might scroll the image off the screen, in which case the application could stop the drawing.

member this.DrawImage : System.Drawing.Image * System.Drawing.Rectangle * single * single * single * single * System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit * System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageAttributes * System.Drawing.Graphics.DrawImageAbort -> unit
Parameters
image
Image Image Image

Image to draw.

destRect
Rectangle Rectangle Rectangle

Rectangle structure that specifies the location and size of the drawn image. The image is scaled to fit the rectangle.

srcX
Single Single Single

The x-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the portion of the source image to draw.

srcY
Single Single Single

The y-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the portion of the source image to draw.

srcWidth
Single Single Single

Width of the portion of the source image to draw.

srcHeight
Single Single Single

Height of the portion of the source image to draw.

srcUnit
GraphicsUnit GraphicsUnit GraphicsUnit

Member of the GraphicsUnit enumeration that specifies the units of measure used to determine the source rectangle.

imageAttrs
ImageAttributes ImageAttributes ImageAttributes

ImageAttributes that specifies recoloring and gamma information for the image object.

callback

Graphics.DrawImageAbort delegate that specifies a method to call during the drawing of the image. This method is called frequently to check whether to stop execution of the DrawImage(Image, Rectangle, Single, Single, Single, Single, GraphicsUnit, ImageAttributes, Graphics+DrawImageAbort) method according to application-determined criteria.

Exceptions

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 first defines a callback method for the Graphics.DrawImageAbort delegate; the definition is simplistic and merely tests to see whether the DrawImage method calls it with a null callBackData parameter. The main body of the example performs the following actions:

  • Creates an instance of the Graphics.DrawImageAbort callback method.

  • Creates an image from a JPEG file SampImag.jpg in the folder of the example.

  • Creates points that define a destination rectangle in which to draw the image.

  • Creates a source rectangle to select the portion of the image to draw.

  • Sets the graphics drawing unit to pixel.

  • Draws the original image to the screen.

  • Creates an additional destination rectangle in which to draw an adjusted image.

  • Creates and sets the attributes of the adjusted image to have a larger-than-usual gamma value.

  • Draws the adjusted image to the screen.

For the original, unadjusted destination rectangle, the position locates the image on the screen, and the size of the source rectangle and the size and shape of the destination rectangle determines the scaling of the drawn image.

Because this example uses an overload that does not pass a callBackData parameter, the Graphics.DrawImageAbort callback returns true, which causes the DrawImage method to end, and the exception-handling code included in the example prints out the exception text rather than drawing the image.

Remarks

The srcX, srcY, srcWidth, and srcHeight parameters specify a rectangular portion, of the image object to draw. The rectangle is relative to the upper-left corner of the source image. This portion is scaled to fit inside the rectangle specified by the destRect object.

This overload with the callback parameter provides the means to stop the drawing of an image once it starts according to criteria determined by the application. For example, an application could start drawing a large image and the user might scroll the image off the screen, in which case the application could stop the drawing.

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 image from a JPEG file SampImag.jpg in the folder of the example.

  • Creates a destination rectangle in which to draw the image.

  • Creates the coordinates of a source rectangle from which to extract a portion of the image.

  • Sets the unit of measure of the source rectangle to pixels.

  • Draws the original image to the screen.

  • Creates an additional rectangle in which to draw an adjusted image.

  • Creates and sets the attributes of the adjusted image to have a larger-than-usual gamma value.

  • Draws the adjusted image to the screen.

For the original, unadjusted destination rectangle, the position locates the image on the screen, and the sizes of the source and destination rectangles determine the scaling of the drawn image, and the size of the source rectangle determines what portion of the original image is drawn to the screen.

Parameters
image
Image Image Image

Image to draw.

destPoints
PointF[]

Array of three PointF structures that define a parallelogram.

srcRect
RectangleF RectangleF RectangleF

RectangleF structure that specifies the portion of the image object to draw.

srcUnit
GraphicsUnit GraphicsUnit GraphicsUnit

Member of the GraphicsUnit enumeration that specifies the units of measure used by the srcRect parameter.

imageAttr
ImageAttributes ImageAttributes ImageAttributes

ImageAttributes that specifies recoloring and gamma information for the image object.

callback

Graphics.DrawImageAbort delegate that specifies a method to call during the drawing of the image. This method is called frequently to check whether to stop execution of the DrawImage(Image, PointF[], RectangleF, GraphicsUnit, ImageAttributes, Graphics+DrawImageAbort, Int32) method according to application-determined criteria.

callbackData
Int32 Int32 Int32

Value specifying additional data for the Graphics.DrawImageAbort delegate to use when checking whether to stop execution of the DrawImage(Image, PointF[], RectangleF, GraphicsUnit, ImageAttributes, Graphics+DrawImageAbort, Int32) method.

Exceptions

Examples

The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, which is a parameter of the PaPaint event handler. The code first defines a callback method for the Graphics.DrawImageAbort delegate; the definition is simplistic and merely tests to see whether the DrawImage method calls it with a null callBackData parameter. The main body of the example performs the following actions:

  • Creates an instance of the Graphics.DrawImageAbort callback method.

  • Creates an image from a JPEG file SampImag.jpg in the folder of the example.

  • Creates points that define a parallelogram in which to draw the image.

  • Creates a rectangle to select the portion of the image to draw.

  • Sets the graphics drawing unit to pixel.

  • Draws the original image to the screen.

  • Creates an additional parallelogram in which to draw an adjusted image.

  • Creates and sets the attributes of the adjusted image to have a larger-than-usual gamma value.

  • Draws the adjusted image to the screen.

For the original, unadjusted parallelogram, the position locates the image on the screen, and the size of the rectangle and the size and shape of the parallelogram determines the scaling and shearing of the drawn image.

Because this example uses an overload that passes a callBackData parameter, the Graphics.DrawImageAbort callback returns false, which causes the DrawImage method to continue, and the example draws the adjusted image to the screen.

Remarks

The destPoints parameter specifies three points of a parallelogram. The three PointF structures represent the upper-left, upper-right, and lower-left corners of the parallelogram. The fourth point is extrapolated from the first three to form a parallelogram.

The srcRect parameter specifies a rectangular portion of the image object to draw. This portion is scaled and sheared to fit inside the parallelogram specified by the destPoints parameter.

This overload with the callback and callbackData parameters provides the means to stop the drawing of an image once it starts according to criteria and data determined by the application. For example, an application could start drawing a large image and the user might scroll the image off the screen, in which case the application could stop the drawing.

This method is called frequently to check whether to stop execution of the DrawImage(Image, PointF[], RectangleF, GraphicsUnit, ImageAttributes, Graphics+DrawImageAbort) method according to application-determined criteria.

Exceptions

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 first defines a callback method for the Graphics.DrawImageAbort delegate; the definition is simplistic and merely tests to see whether the DrawImage method calls it with a null callBackData parameter. The main body of the example performs the following actions:

  • Creates an instance of the Graphics.DrawImageAbort callback method.

  • Creates an image from a JPEG file SampImag.jpg in the folder of the example.

  • Creates points that define a parallelogram in which to draw the image.

  • Creates a rectangle to select the portion of the image to draw.

  • Sets the graphics drawing unit to pixel.

  • Draws the original image to the screen.

  • Creates an additional parallelogram in which to draw an adjusted image.

  • Creates and sets the attributes of the adjusted image to have a larger-than-usual gamma value.

  • Draws the adjusted image to the screen.

For the original, unadjusted parallelogram, the position locates the image on the screen, and the size of the rectangle and the size and shape of the parallelogram determines the scaling and shearing of the drawn image.

Because this example uses an overload that does not pass a callBackData parameter, the Graphics.DrawImageAbort callback returns true, which causes the DrawImage method to end, and the exception-handling code included in the example prints out the exception text rather than drawing the image.

Remarks

The destPoints parameter specifies three points of a parallelogram. The three PointF structures represent the upper-left, upper-right, and lower-left corners of the parallelogram. The fourth point is extrapolated from the first three to form a parallelogram.

The srcRect parameter specifies a rectangular portion of the image object to draw. This portion is scaled and sheared to fit inside the parallelogram specified by the destPoints parameter.

This overload with the callback parameter provides the means to stop the drawing of an image once it starts according to criteria determined by the application. For example, an application could start drawing a large image and the user might scroll the image off the screen, in which case the application could stop the drawing.

End Sub

Remarks

An Image stores a value for pixel width and a value for horizontal resolution (dots per inch). The physical width, measured in inches, of an image is the pixel width divided by the horizontal resolution. For example, an image with a pixel width of 216 and a horizontal resolution of 72 dots per inch has a physical width of 3 inches. Similar remarks apply to pixel height and physical height.

This method draws an image using its physical size, so the image will have its correct size in inches regardless of the resolution (dots per inch) of the display device. For example, suppose an image has a pixel width of 216 and a horizontal resolution of 72 dots per inch. If you call this method to draw that image on a device that has a resolution of 96 dots per inch, the pixel width of the rendered image will be (216/72)*96 = 288.

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 image from a JPEG file SampImag.jpg in the folder of the example SampImag.jpg in the folder of the example.

  • Creates the coordinates of a point at which to draw the upper-left corner of the image.

  • Draws the unscaled image.

public:
   void DrawImage2Int( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      // Create image.
      Image^ newImage = Image::FromFile( "SampImag.jpg" );

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

      // Draw image to screen.
      e->Graphics->DrawImage( newImage, x, y );
   }
public void DrawImage2Int(PaintEventArgs e)
{
                
    // Create image.
    Image newImage = Image.FromFile("SampImag.jpg");
                
    // Create coordinates for upper-left corner of image.
    int x = 100;
    int y = 100;
                
    // Draw image to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawImage(newImage, x, y);
}
Public Sub DrawImage2Int(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create image.
    Dim newImage As Image = Image.FromFile("SampImag.jpg")

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

    ' Draw image to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawImage(newImage, x, y)
End Sub

Remarks

An Image stores a value for pixel width and a value for horizontal resolution (dots per inch). The physical width, measured in inches, of an image is the pixel width divided by the horizontal resolution. For example, an image with a pixel width of 216 and a horizontal resolution of 72 dots per inch has a physical width of 3 inches. Similar remarks apply to pixel height and physical height.

The DrawImage method draws an image using its physical size, so the image will have its correct size in inches regardless of the resolution (dots per inch) of the display device. For example, suppose an image has a pixel width of 216 and a horizontal resolution of 72 dots per inch. If you call DrawImage to draw that image on a device that has a resolution of 96 dots per inch, the pixel width of the rendered image will be (216/72)*96 = 288.

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 image from a JPEG file SampImag.jpg in the folder of the example.

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

  • Creates a source rectangle from which to extract a portion of the image.

  • Sets the unit of measure of the source rectangle to pixels.

  • Draws the image to the screen.

The size of the source rectangle determines what portion of the unscaled original image is drawn to the screen.

public:
   void DrawImage2IntRect( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      // Create image.
      Image^ newImage = Image::FromFile( "SampImag.jpg" );

    Dim units As GraphicsUnit = GraphicsUnit.Pixel

    ' Draw image to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawImage(newImage, x, y, srcRect, units)
End Sub

Remarks

An Image stores a value for pixel width and a value for horizontal resolution (dots per inch). The physical width, measured in inches, of an image is the pixel width divided by the horizontal resolution. For example, an image with a pixel width of 360 and a horizontal resolution of 72 dots per inch has a physical width of 5 inches. Similar remarks apply to pixel height and physical height.

This method draws a portion of an image using its physical size, so the image portion will have its correct size in inches regardless of the resolution (dots per inch) of the display device. For example, suppose an image portion has a pixel width of 216 and a horizontal resolution of 72 dots per inch. If you call this method to draw that image portion on a device that has a resolution of 96 dots per inch, the pixel width of the rendered image portion will be (216/72)*96 = 288.

End Sub

Remarks

An Image stores a value for pixel width and a value for horizontal resolution (dots per inch). The physical width, measured in inches, of an image is the pixel width divided by the horizontal resolution. For example, an image with a pixel width of 216 and a horizontal resolution of 72 dots per inch has a physical width of 3 inches. Similar remarks apply to pixel height and physical height.

This method draws an image using its physical size, so the image will have its correct size in inches regardless of the resolution (dots per inch) of the display device. For example, suppose an image has a pixel width of 216 and a horizontal resolution of 72 dots per inch. If you call this method to draw that image on a device that has a resolution of 96 dots per inch, the pixel width of the rendered image will be (216/72)*96 = 288.

Parameters
image
Image Image Image

Image to draw.

destPoints
Point[]

Array of three Point structures that define a parallelogram.

srcRect
Rectangle Rectangle Rectangle

Rectangle structure that specifies the portion of the image object to draw.

srcUnit
GraphicsUnit GraphicsUnit GraphicsUnit

Member of the GraphicsUnit enumeration that specifies the units of measure used by the srcRect parameter.

imageAttr
ImageAttributes ImageAttributes ImageAttributes

ImageAttributes that specifies recoloring and gamma information for the image object.

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 image from a JPEG file SampImag.jpg in the folder of the example.

  • Creates points that define a parallelogram in which to draw the image.

  • Creates a rectangle to select the portion of the image to draw.

  • Sets the graphics drawing unit to pixel.

  • Draws the original image to the screen.

  • Creates an additional parallelogram in which to draw an adjusted image.

  • Creates and sets the attributes of the adjusted image to have a larger-than-usual gamma value.

  • Draws the adjusted image to the screen.

For the original, unadjusted parallelogram, the position locates the image on the screen, and the size of the rectangle and the size and shape of the parallelogram determines the scaling and shearing of the drawn image.

Remarks

The destPoints parameter specifies three points of a parallelogram. The three Point structures represent the upper-left, upper-right, and lower-left corners of the parallelogram. The fourth point is extrapolated from the first three to form a parallelogram.

The srcRect parameter specifies a rectangular portion of theimage object to draw. This portion is scaled and sheared to fit inside the parallelogram specified by the destPoints parameter.
