Windows API Guide: Ellipse Function Platforms: Win32s, Win 95/98, Win NT Ellipse draws an ellipse on a device. The two coordinate pairs passed to the function are not part of the ellipse itself, but define its bounding rectangle. The bounding rectangle is the smallest possible rectangle containing the ellipse. The ellipse will be drawn with the color of the object's .ForeColor property. The function returns 0 if it fails, or 1 if it succeeds.
