The following example demonstrates how to use the DrawToBitmap method and the ClientRectangle property to draw a OvalShape on a PictureBox control.

Dim pic As New System.Drawing.Bitmap(Me.PictureBox1.Image, _
  PictureBox1.Width, PictureBox1.Height)
Dim rect As New System.Drawing.Rectangle
' Assign the client rectangle.
rect = OvalShape1.ClientRectangle
' Draw the oval on the bitmap.
OvalShape1.DrawToBitmap(pic, rect)
PictureBox2.Image = pic
