Lesson 23: Drawing Rectangle

We have learned how to create the Graphics and the Pen objects to draw straight lines in the previous lesson. Now we shall learn how to draw rectangle, square,ellipse and circle.

23.1 Creating Rectangles

To draw a rectangle on the screen in VB2008, there are two ways: (i)The first way is to draw a rectangle directly using the DrawRectangle method by specifying its upper-left corner's coordinates and its width and height. You also need to create a Graphics and a Pen object to handle the actual drawing. The method to draw the rectangle is DrawRectangle .

The syntax is:

    myGrapphics.DrawRectangle(myPen, X, Y, width, height)
