Drawing in Visual Basic

experimentSome of the graphics methods use rectangles. A rectangle is another class. When you declare an instance of the rectangle class, you give X, Y, width and height as the arguments. Previously, we asked you to copy the program using two brushes. here we show how to change the color of MyBrush after it has been declared.
Public Class Form1
    Private Sub Form1_MouseClick(sender As Object, e As MouseEventArgs) Handles Me.MouseClick
        Dim MyBrush As New SolidBrush(Color.Black)
        Dim MyRectangle As New Rectangle(e.X, e.Y, 20, 20)
        Me.CreateGraphics.FillEllipse(MyBrush, MyRectangle)
        MyRectangle.X = MyRectangle.X + 3
        MyRectangle.Y = MyRectangle.Y + 3
        MyBrush.Color = Color.DeepPink
        Me.CreateGraphics.FillEllipse(MyBrush, MyRectangle)
    End Sub
End Class

arc

Dim MyPen As New Pen(Color.Red, 3)
Me.CreateGraphics.DrawArc(MyPen, e.X, e.Y, 40, 40, 0, 90)
'pen, center of circle as x, and Y, width and height of circle, start angle, degrees)
fillPie
Dim MyBrush As New SolidBrush(Color.Blue)
Me.CreateGraphics.FillPie(MyBrush, e.X, e.Y, 40, 40, 90, 180)

Public Class Form1
    Private Sub Form1_MouseClick(sender As Object, e As MouseEventArgs) Handles Me.MouseClick
        Dim MyPen As New Pen(Color.Black, 2)
        Dim MyBrush As New SolidBrush(Color.Yellow)
        Dim MyRect As New Rectangle(e.X - 20, e.Y - 20, 40, 40)
        Me.CreateGraphics.FillEllipse(MyBrush, MyRect) 'yellow head
        Me.CreateGraphics.DrawEllipse(MyPen, MyRect) 'black outline
        MyPen.Color = Color.DarkRed 'red for mouth
        Me.CreateGraphics.DrawArc(MyPen, e.X - 12, e.Y - 12, 25, 25, 0, 180) 'mouth
        MyBrush.Color = Color.DarkBlue 'blue for eyes
        Me.CreateGraphics.FillEllipse(MyBrush, e.X - 12, e.Y - 10, 8, 8) 'left eye
        Me.CreateGraphics.FillEllipse(MyBrush, e.X + 4, e.Y - 10, 8, 8) 'right eye
    End Sub
End Class
