GraphicsPath::AddEllipse method

The GraphicsPath::AddEllipse method adds an ellipse to this path.

Syntax

Status AddEllipse(
  IN const Rect & rect
);

Parameters

rect

Type: const Rect

Reference to a rectangle that bounds the ellipse.

Return Value

Type: Type: Status

If the method succeeds, it returns Ok, which is an element of the Status enumeration.

If the method fails, it returns one of the other elements of the Status enumeration.

Remarks

A GraphicsPath object stores an ellipse as a sequence of four connected Bézier splines. The GraphicsPath object does not store the upper-left corner, width, and height of the ellipse's bounding rectangle.

Examples

The following example creates a GraphicsPath object path, adds an ellipse to path, and then draws path.

VOID Example_AddEllipse(HDC hdc)
{
   Graphics graphics(hdc); 
   Rect rect(20, 20, 200, 100);

   GraphicsPath path;
   path.AddEllipse(rect);

   // Draw the path.
   Pen pen(Color(255, 255, 0, 0));
   graphics.DrawPath(&pen, &path);
}
