The following control is very simple to draw when XY co-ordinates are in Top Left of the screen. But what if I want the control to rotate left or right. Please do understand that I would like to have the region set to the drawn portions, to clip any unwanted portions of the area.

Thank you Control to roate & set region

Is this for silverlight?

RotateTransform rt = new RotateTransform();

//rotate 90 clockwise
rt.Angle = 90;
//normal rotation is top left corner.  Setting to 0.5,0.5 rotates about the center.
rt.CenterX = 0.5;
rt.CenterY = 0.5;

myBmp.RenderTransform = rt;

Hi ged325,

I am sorry for not making it clear. It is not for silverlight. It is a Windows User Control.

Unfortunately looks like you'll need WPF, which the above should apply for.  It doesn't look like it's possible in a normal windows application.

Give this a shot.

using System.Drawing.Drawing2D;
private void Form1_Paint(object sender, PaintEventArgs e)
		{
			Graphics g = e.Graphics;

			Pen pen = new Pen(Color.Black);

			g.RotateTransform(45.0f);  // rotate 45'
			g.TranslateTransform(this.ClientSize.Width / 2, this.ClientSize.Height  / 2, MatrixOrder.Append);           // translate

			g.DrawRectangle(pen,new Rectangle(-100, -40, 200, 80));
			g.DrawEllipse(pen, -100, -40, 200, 80);
		}

Add all the contents to a GraphicsPath, including an outer minimum bounding rectangle, and then use the Transform method to physically rotate all the points.  You can use a rotated GraphicsPath with just the outer minimum bounding rectangle to pass to the Region() constructor to clip the UserControl to the rotated image.

Again, this is the same stuff I've rehashed for you over and over again...  =\

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the reply. But what I have to do is this:

Quite similar to what you said but I have to set the region to the drawn area so that not drawn area will get clipped. So I have to do the following:

In addition to code of yours, I have to do this

Matrix M = new Matrix();
            // Translate the Origin to Center of the control in the matrix
            M.Translate(ClientRectangle.Width / 2, ClientRectangle.Height / 2);
            // If needs to be rotated then apply rotation as well for the above matrix
            if (SprayDirection == Spray_Direction.Left)
                M.RotateAt(90f, Center);
            else if (SprayDirection == Spray_Direction.Right)
                M.RotateAt(-90f, Center);
            // Re-compute all the graphics path points to the newly created matrix order
            gp.Transform(M);
            // Apply to the region
            Region rgn = new Region(gp);
