Examples

The following 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 rectangle and draws it to the screen in black

  • Creates a second rectangle that intersects with the first and draws it to the screen in red.

  • Creates one region using the first rectangle and creates a second region using the second rectangle.

  • Gets the complement of that first region when combined with the second region.

  • Fills the complement area with blue and draws it to the screen.

Notice that the area of the second region that does not intersect with the first region is colored blue.
