  boolean PANEL:Paint( number width, number height )


Called whenever the panel should be drawn.

You can create panels with a customized appearance by overriding their Paint() function, which will prevent the default appearance from being drawn.

Render operations from the surface (and consequentially the draw) are always offset by the global position of this panel, as seen in the example below
This hook will not run if the panel is completely off the screen. The hook will still run however if any parts of the panel are still on screen.


1 number width
The panel's width.
2 number height
The panel's height.


1 boolean
Returning true prevents the background from being drawn.


Creates a DPanel and overrides its Paint() function to draw a 100x100 pixel black rounded box in the center of the screen.

local panel = vgui.Create( "DPanel" ) panel:SetSize( 100, 100 ) panel:SetPos( ScrW() / 2 - 50, ScrH() / 2 - 50 ) function panel:Paint( w, h ) draw.RoundedBox( 8, 0, 0, w, h, Color( 0, 0, 0 ) ) end
