TextureBrush.WrapMode Property


Gets or sets a WrapMode enumeration that indicates the wrap mode for this TextureBrush object.

 property System::Drawing::Drawing2D::WrapMode WrapMode { System::Drawing::Drawing2D::WrapMode get(); void set(System::Drawing::Drawing2D::WrapMode value); };
public System.Drawing.Drawing2D.WrapMode WrapMode { get; set; }
member this.WrapMode : System.Drawing.Drawing2D.WrapMode with get, set
Public Property WrapMode As WrapMode

Property Value

A WrapMode enumeration that specifies how fills drawn by using this LinearGradientBrush object are tiled.


The following code example demonstrates how to obtain a new bitmap using the FromFile method. It also demonstrates the WrapMode property and the WrapMode enumeration.

This example is designed to be used with Windows Forms. Create a form containing a button named Button2. Paste the code into the form and associate the Button2_Click method with the button's Click event.

   void Button2_Click( System::Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
         Bitmap^ image1 = dynamic_cast<Bitmap^>(Image::FromFile( "C:\\Documents and Settings\\"
         "All Users\\Documents\\My Music\\music.bmp", true ));
         TextureBrush^ texture = gcnew TextureBrush( image1 );
         texture->WrapMode = System::Drawing::Drawing2D::WrapMode::Tile;
         Graphics^ formGraphics = this->CreateGraphics();
         formGraphics->FillEllipse( texture, RectangleF(90.0F,110.0F,100,100) );
         delete formGraphics;
      catch ( System::IO::FileNotFoundException^ ) 
         MessageBox::Show( "There was an error opening the bitmap."
         "Please check the path." );
private void Button2_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
        Bitmap image1 = (Bitmap) Image.FromFile(@"C:\Documents and Settings\" +
            @"All Users\Documents\My Music\music.bmp", true);

        TextureBrush texture = new TextureBrush(image1);
        texture.WrapMode = System.Drawing.Drawing2D.WrapMode.Tile;
        Graphics formGraphics = this.CreateGraphics();
            new RectangleF(90.0F, 110.0F, 100, 100));
        MessageBox.Show("There was an error opening the bitmap." +
            "Please check the path.");
Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
        Dim image1 As Bitmap = _
            CType(Image.FromFile("C:\Documents and Settings\" _
            & "All Users\Documents\My Music\music.bmp", True), Bitmap)

        Dim texture As New TextureBrush(image1)
        texture.WrapMode = Drawing2D.WrapMode.Tile
        Dim formGraphics As Graphics = Me.CreateGraphics()
        formGraphics.FillEllipse(texture, _
            New RectangleF(90.0F, 110.0F, 100, 100))

    Catch ex As System.IO.FileNotFoundException
        MessageBox.Show("There was an error opening the bitmap." _
            & "Please check the path.")
    End Try

End Sub
