Draws the chord of a circle (intersection between an ellipse and a straight line) in an Image control.
Example
// In an Image control, draw the chord of a circle whose
// background is light yellow and whose border is light blue
IMG_Drawing.DrawChord(10, 10, 50, 50, 20, 20, 40, 50, LightYellow, LightBlue)
Syntax
<Image control>.DrawChord(<X1> , <Y1> , <X2> , <Y2> , <X3> , <Y3> , <X4> , <Y4> [, <Background color> [, <Line color>]])
<Image control>: Control name
Name of the Image control to use.
<X1>: Integer
X coordinate of top left corner of the rectangle containing the circle. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Y1>: Integer
Y coordinate of top left corner of the rectangle containing the circle. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<X2>: Integer
X coordinate of bottom right corner of the rectangle containing the circle. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Y2>: Integer
Y coordinate of bottom right corner of the rectangle containing the circle. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<X3>: Integer
X coordinate of start point of the chord. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Y3>: Integer
Y coordinate of start point of the chord. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<X4>: Integer
X coordinate of end point of the chord. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Y4>: Integer
Y coordinate of end point of the chord. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Background color>: Integer or constant (optional)
Background color of chord. This color can correspond to:
If this parameter is not specified, the background color:
<Line color>: Integer or constant (optional)
Line color for the circle chord. This color can correspond to:
If this parameter is not specified, the line color:
  • corresponds to the color specified in the last call to <Image>.Pen,
  • is identical to the color used for the background if <Image>.Pen has not been used.
Remarks

Limits

  • <Image>.DrawChord is not available in anti-aliasing mode (for more details, see the help about <Image>.ChangeMode).
  • <Image>.DrawChord is not available for a drawing with management of alpha channel (see the help about <Image>.StartDrawing for more details). This function has no effect.

Coordinates

If the start and end points are not located on the outline of the circle (or on the outline of the ellipse), the point taken into account is the intersection between the circle and the line that joins the specified point and the center of the rectangle (which means the center of the circle).
The coordinates are specified with respect to the top left corner of the Image control (coordinates set to (0,0)).

Solid figure

<Image>.DrawChord can only be used to draw a chord: outline only or chord area. To draw a solid figure (portion defined by the center of the circle and the two points on the circle), use <Image>.DrawSlice.
