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 a black pen.

  • Creates points for the endpoints of the line.

  • Draws the line to the screen.

public:
   void DrawLinePointF( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {

      // Create pen.
      Pen^ blackPen = gcnew Pen( Color::Black,3.0f );
      
      // Create points that define line.
      PointF point1 = PointF(100.0F,100.0F);
      PointF point2 = PointF(500.0F,100.0F);

      // Draw line to screen.
      e->Graphics->DrawLine( blackPen, point1, point2 );
   }
public void DrawLinePointF(PaintEventArgs e)
{
             
    // Create pen.
    Pen blackPen = new Pen(Color.Black, 3);
             
    // Create points that define line.
    PointF point1 = new PointF(100.0F, 100.0F);
    PointF point2 = new PointF(500.0F, 100.0F);
             
    // Draw line to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawLine(blackPen, point1, point2);
}
Public Sub DrawLinePointF(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create pen.
    Dim blackPen As New Pen(Color.Black, 3)

    ' Create points that define line.
    Dim point1 As New PointF(100.0F, 100.0F)
    Dim point2 As New PointF(500.0F, 100.0F)

    ' Draw line to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawLine(blackPen, point1, point2)
End Sub

Remarks

This method draws a line connecting the two points specified by the pt1 and p2 parameters.
