How to call paint event from a button click event?


I have a pictureBox with the event "paint" and I also got code in there to draw graphics.

such as:

public partial class Form1 : Form { public Form1() { InitializeComponent(); } private void pictureBox1_Paint(object sender, PaintEventArgs e) { Graphics graphics = e.Graphics; graphics.DrawEllipse(Pens.Blue, 10, 10, 100, 100); } private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { pictureBox1.Invalidate(); } }


My question is. How to fire these events of from a button_click event? I searched alot on the web and found alot of awnsers like ".invalidate()" or ".Refresh()" and ".Update". But my assignment tells me that I need to do it with the .Refresh() method and the painting needs to be in a pictureBox.

What I notice from .Refresh() method. Is that it erases the pictureBox(draws the pictureBox how it was created on initialize). So firing off .Refresh method in a button did not work for me.

Any other suggestions how to fire off a paint event from a button?


This should do the trick:

public partial class Form1 : Form { public Form1() { InitializeComponent(); pictureBox1.Image = new Bitmap(pictureBox1.Width, pictureBox1.Height); } private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { using (var g = Graphics.FromImage(pictureBox1.Image)) { g.DrawEllipse(Pens.Blue, 10, 10, 100, 100); pictureBox1.Refresh(); } } }
