VOID Example_XorRect(HDC hdc)
{
   Graphics graphics(hdc);

  Point points[] = {
      Point(110, 20),
      Point(120, 30),
      Point(100, 60),
      Point(120, 70),
      Point(150, 60),
      Point(140, 10)};

   Rect rect(65, 15, 70, 45);
   GraphicsPath path;
   SolidBrush solidBrush(Color(255, 255, 0, 0));

   path.AddClosedCurve(points, 6);

   // Create a region from a path.
   Region pathRegion(&path);

   // Perform an exclusive OR operation on the region and a rectangle.
   pathRegion.Xor(rect);

   graphics.FillRegion(&solidBrush, &pathRegion);
}
