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 Pen.

  • Creates a copy of that pen.

  • Draws a line to the screen, using the copy of the pen.

public:
   void Clone_Example( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      
      // Create a Pen object.
      Pen^ myPen = gcnew Pen( Color::Black,5.0f );
      
      // Clone myPen.
      Pen^ clonePen = dynamic_cast<Pen^>(myPen->Clone());
      
      // Draw a line with clonePen.
      e->Graphics->DrawLine( clonePen, 0, 0, 100, 100 );
   }
public void Clone_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{
             
    // Create a Pen object.
    Pen myPen = new Pen(Color.Black, 5);
             
    // Clone myPen.
    Pen clonePen = (Pen)myPen.Clone();
             
    // Draw a line with clonePen.
    e.Graphics.DrawLine(clonePen, 0, 0, 100, 100);
}
Public Sub Clone_Example(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create a Pen object.
    Dim myPen As New Pen(Color.Black, 5)

    ' Clone myPen.
    Dim clonePen As Pen = CType(myPen.Clone(), Pen)
