The Drawing2D namespace provides advanced two-dimensional and vector graphics functionality.


AdjustableArrowCapRepresents an adjustable arrow-shaped line cap. This class cannot be inherited.
BlendDefines a blend pattern for a LinearGradientBrush object. This class cannot be inherited.
ColorBlendDefines arrays of colors and positions used for interpolating color blending in a multicolor gradient. This class cannot be inherited.
CustomLineCapEncapsulates a custom user-defined line cap.
GraphicsContainerRepresents the internal data of a graphics container. This class is used when saving the state of a Graphics object using the BeginContainer and EndContainer methods. This class cannot be inherited.
GraphicsPathRepresents a series of connected lines and curves.
GraphicsPathIteratorProvides the ability to iterate through subpaths in a GraphicsPath and test the types of shapes contained in each subpath. This class cannot be inherited.
GraphicsStateRepresents the state of a Graphics object. This object is returned by a call to the Save methods. This class cannot be inherited.
HatchBrushDefines a rectangular brush with a hatch style, a foreground color, and a background color. This class cannot be inherited.
LinearGradientBrushEncapsulates a Brush with a linear gradient. This class cannot be inherited.
MatrixEncapsulates a 3-by-3 affine matrix that represents a geometric transform. This class cannot be inherited.
PathDataContains the graphical data that makes up a GraphicsPath object. This class cannot be inherited.
PathGradientBrushEncapsulates a Brush object that fills the interior of a GraphicsPath object with a gradient. This class cannot be inherited.
RegionDataEncapsulates the data that makes up a Region object. This class cannot be inherited.
