    PaintPolygon Method
    In This Topic
    Paints a polygon consisting of two or more vertices connected by straight lines. The polygon is outlined by using the current pen and filled by using the current brush and polygon fill mode.
    Syntax
    'Declaration
     
    Public Overridable Sub PaintPolygon( _
       ByVal vertices() As System.Drawing.Point _
    ) 
    public virtual void PaintPolygon( 
       System.Drawing.Point[] vertices
    )

    Parameters

    vertices
    A System.Drawing.Point structures that specify the vertices of the polygon.
    Exceptions
    ExceptionDescription
    Defines an exception class to handle the system error.
    Remarks

    The polygon is closed automatically by drawing a line from the last vertex to the first.

    Windows 95/98/Me: PaintPolygon cannot draw more than a certain number of points. The limit depends on the line width (that is, the width of the pen selected into the DC) Line widthMaximum points allowed line width is 1 16K line width > 1 (that is, wideline) and device supports wideline 16K line width > 1 but device does not support wideline approximately 1360 (that is, approximately 16K/12)

    Any extra points are ignored. To draw a line with more points, divide the data into groups that have less than the maximum number of points and call the function for each group of points. Remember to connect the line segments.
