Restricting the Drawing Surface in GDI+
Clipping involves restricting drawing to a certain rectangle or region. The following illustration shows the string "Hello" clipped to a heart-shaped region.
Clipping with Regions
Regions can be constructed from paths, and paths can contain the outlines of strings, so you can use outlined text for clipping. The following illustration shows a set of concentric ellipses clipped to the interior of a string of text.
myGraphics.Clip = myRegion; myGraphics.DrawLine(myPen, 0, 0, 200, 200);
myGraphics.Clip = myRegion myGraphics.DrawLine(myPen, 0, 0, 200, 200)
