Default Click event for graphics

In the chapters 19 to 22, you have give all the graphics code for load event. Is there any way to make the same code work for the click-event?
Please give one example.

I think you meant the examples draw in the Paint event handler not Load.

Paint is where you generally want to draw stuff. If you draw somewhere else, such as a Click event handler, then whatever you draw disappears when the form refreshes. To try this, use CreateGraphics to make a Graphics object and then draw on that instead of the one provided by the Paint event handler.

To make changes that last, you need to create a Bitmap, make a Graphics object associated with it, draw on that, and then display the Bitmap somewhere such as in a PictureBox's Image property or the form's BackgroundImage property. For an example, see:


Usually it's just easier to draw in the Paint event handler.
