# Drawing Rectangle Shape at Runtime

### Soru

• I am drawing multiple rectangle shapes at runtime based on a XY location co-ordinate that I calculate.  The problem I have is the sometimes, one rectangle location is based off a previously calculate rectangle.

How can I access the location of a rectangle that was generated at runtime?

I have 1 routine that generates the shape.  How do I access the rectangle generated at runtime called BOX & i

private sub Test()

canvas.Parent = Me
rect1.Parent = canvas
rect1.Name = BOX & i
' Set the size of the rectangle
rect1.Width = (LAYER_CASE_txtLength.Text * ScaleX)
rect1.Height = (LAYER_CASE_txtWidth.Text * ScaleY)

rect1.top = XXXX

rect1.left = YYYY

• Your code is not complete. Where is the code for BOX & i? I cannot see the problem you got with the code above. Can you show the entire code?

You may want to use a PictureBox for your graphics and a matrix for your rectangles (if your rectangles form a grid)

So if your first rectangle is at the coordinates (i,j) and has the size (width1,height1), the rectangle that will come to the right will have the coordinates (i,j+width1) and the rectangle bellow should have the coordinates (i+height1, j).

Also, you may find this tutorial on graphics useful.
