Property Value

Type: Size
The Size that represents the height and width of the shape in pixels.


The Width and Height properties represent the width and height of the shape. You can use the Size property to obtain the size of the shape for tasks such as drawing on the surface of the shape.

Because SimpleShape has no non-client area, the ClientSize and Size properties are the same.


The following example demonstrates how to use the Size property to resize an OvalShape control. This example requires that you have an OvalShape control named OvalShape1 on a form.

Private Sub OvalShape1_Click() Handles OvalShape1.Click
    ' Declare a Size 20 pixels wider and taller than the current Size. 
    Dim sz As New System.Drawing.Size(OvalShape1.Width + 20, 
      OvalShape1.Height + 20)
    ' Change the Size.
    OvalShape1.Size = sz
End Sub
private void ovalShape1_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    // Declare a Size 20 pixels wider and taller than the current Size.
    System.Drawing.Size sz = new System.Drawing.Size(ovalShape1.Width + 20, 
        ovalShape1.Height + 20);
    // Change the Size.
    ovalShape1.Size = sz;
