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 solid blue brush.

  • Creates an array of seven points to define a polygon.

  • Fills the polygonal area on the screen.

public:
   void FillPolygonPoint( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      // Create solid brush.
      SolidBrush^ blueBrush = gcnew SolidBrush( Color::Blue );

      // Create points that define polygon.
      Point point1 = Point(50,50);
      Point point2 = Point(100,25);
      Point point3 = Point(200,5);
      Point point4 = Point(250,50);
      Point point5 = Point(300,100);
      Point point6 = Point(350,200);
      Point point7 = Point(250,250);
      array<Point>^ curvePoints = {point1,point2,point3,point4,point5,point6,point7};

      // Draw polygon to screen.
      e->Graphics->FillPolygon( blueBrush, curvePoints );
   }
public void FillPolygonPoint(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    // Create solid brush.
    SolidBrush blueBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.Blue);

    // Create points that define polygon.
    Point point1 = new Point(50, 50);
    Point point2 = new Point(100, 25);
    Point point3 = new Point(200, 5);
    Point point4 = new Point(250, 50);
    Point point5 = new Point(300, 100);
    Point point6 = new Point(350, 200);
    Point point7 = new Point(250, 250);
    Point[] curvePoints = {point1, point2, point3, point4, point5, point6, point7};

    // Draw polygon to screen.
    e.Graphics.FillPolygon(blueBrush, curvePoints);
}
Public Sub FillPolygonPoint(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create solid brush.
    Dim blueBrush As New SolidBrush(Color.Blue)

    ' Create points that define polygon.
    Dim point1 As New Point(50, 50)
    Dim point2 As New Point(100, 25)
    Dim point3 As New Point(200, 5)
    Dim point4 As New Point(250, 50)
    Dim point5 As New Point(300, 100)

    point5, point6, point7}

    ' Draw polygon to screen.
    e.Graphics.FillPolygon(blueBrush, curvePoints)
End Sub

Remarks

Every two consecutive points in the array specify a side of the polygon. In addition, if the last point and the first point do not coincide, they specify the closing side of the polygon.
