Remarks

Coordinates

Drawing a polygon:
dPolygon(5, 80, 10, 10, 150, 100, 200, 160, 80, 140, 40)
Drawing a polygon
Coordinates are given with respect to the top left corner of the image (coordinates: (0.0)).
Important: There is no need to close the polygon (the coordinates of last point do not have to be equal to the coordinates of first point). The polygon is automatically "closed".
Limits: a polygon can contain up to 100 000 points in WINDEV, WEBDEV and Java, and up to 1000 points in Windows CE.
Reports and QueriesWindows

Drawing with opacity or anti-aliasing

When drawing with opacity (dStartDrawing with the dWithOpacity constant) or with anti-aliasing (dChangeMode with the drawAntiAliasing constant), the border is drawn above the inside of the polygon: therefore, the line is partly combined with the inside of the polygon. If the line is very thick, it will be displayed in two colors.

Using the drawing functions

The drawing functions can be used according to 2 methods:
  • Method 1: Using dStartDrawing
    • dStartDrawing must be called before any other drawing function. dStartDrawing is used to define the element (Image control or variable) to which the drawing functions will be applied.
    • When drawing on an Image control:
      • The drawing functions operate on a copy ("bitmap") of the image. You can use the drawing functions of Windows (via API or CallDLL32) but these functions must use the DC (Device Context) returned by dStartDrawing.
      • dEndDrawing and dStartDrawing must not be called in the same process.
        The drawing will not be displayed if dEndDrawing and dStartDrawing are called in the same process: it will be automatically erased.
  • Versions 24 and later
    Reports and QueriesWindows Method 2: indicating the drawing target directly in the syntax (via a parameter)
    The <Image> parameter is used to specify directly the target of the drawing. The dStartDrawing function becomes unnecessary. This function must be deleted.
