SimpleShape.DrawToBitmap Method

Supports rendering to the specified bitmap.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs.dll)


Public Overrides Sub DrawToBitmap ( _
    bitmap As Bitmap, _
    targetBounds As Rectangle _
Dim instance As SimpleShape 
Dim bitmap As Bitmap 
Dim targetBounds As Rectangle

instance.DrawToBitmap(bitmap, targetBounds)
public override void DrawToBitmap(
    Bitmap bitmap,
    Rectangle targetBounds
virtual void DrawToBitmap(
    Bitmap^ bitmap, 
    Rectangle targetBounds
) override
public override function DrawToBitmap(
    bitmap : Bitmap, 
    targetBounds : Rectangle



If the x or y coordinates or the width or height parameters of targetBounds are less than 0, an ArgumentException is thrown.


The following example demonstrates how to use the DrawToBitmap method and the ClientRectangle property to draw an OvalShape on a PictureBox control.

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
 ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    Dim pic As New System.Drawing.Bitmap(Me.PictureBox1.Image, _
      PictureBox1.Width, PictureBox1.Height)
    Dim rect As New System.Drawing.Rectangle
    ' Assign the client rectangle.
    rect = OvalShape1.ClientRectangle
    ' Draw the oval on the bitmap.
    OvalShape1.DrawToBitmap(pic, rect)
    PictureBox2.Image = pic
End Sub
private void form1_Load(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    System.Drawing.Bitmap pic = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(this.pictureBox1.Image, 
        pictureBox1.Width, pictureBox1.Height);
    System.Drawing.Rectangle rect = new System.Drawing.Rectangle();
    // Assign the client rectangle.
    rect = ovalShape1.ClientRectangle;
    // Draw the oval on the bitmap.
    ovalShape1.DrawToBitmap(pic, rect);
    pictureBox2.Image = pic;
