MyLayer is picLayer
 
// Draw a 4-side polygon whose
// background is light yellow and whose border is light blue

Syntax

Building a polygon point by point Hide the details

<picLayer image>.DrawPolygon(<Number of sides> , <X1> , <Y1> , <X2> , <Y2> [, <X3> , <Y3> [... [, <Xn> , <Yn>]]] [, <Background color> [, <Side color>]])
<picLayer image>: picLayer variable
Name of the picLayer variable to use.
<Number of sides>: Integer
Number of sides in the polygon (up to 23 sides). This parameter defines the number of <X>, <Y> pairs to specify in the function.
<X1>: Integer
X coordinate of first point of the polygon. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Y1>: Integer
Y coordinate of first point of the polygon. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<X2>: Integer
X coordinate of second point of the polygon. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Y2>: Integer
Y coordinate of second point of the polygon. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<X3>: Integer
X coordinate of 3rd point of the polygon. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Y3>: Integer
Y coordinate of 3rd point of the polygon. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Xn>: Optional integer
X coordinate of nth point of the polygon. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Yn>: Optional integer
Y coordinate of nth point of the polygon. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Background color>: Integer or constant (optional)
Background color of polygon. This color can correspond to:
If this parameter is not specified, the background color:
<Side color>: Integer or constant (optional)
Color of polygon sides. 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 was not used.

Building a polygon via an array of X and Y coordinates Hide the details

<picLayer image>.DrawPolygon(<Array of coordinates> [, <Background color> [, <Side color>]])
<picLayer image>: picLayer variable
Name of the picLayer variable to use.
<Array of coordinates>: Array of integers or array of points
  • WLanguage array of integers containing the coordinates of polygon points. The even subscript represent the X coordinates while the odd subscripts represent the Y coordinates of points. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.

<Background color>: Integer or constant (optional)
Background color of polygon. This color can correspond to:
If this parameter is not specified, the background color:
<Side color>: Integer or constant (optional)
Color of polygon sides. 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 was not used.
Remarks

Coordinates

Drawing a polygon:
MyImage is WDPic
MyLayer is picLayer
 
MyLayer.DrawPolygon(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.

Drawing with opacity or anti-aliasing

In the case of a drawing with opacity (<picLayer variable>.StartDrawing with the dWithOpacity constant) or anti-aliasing (<picLayer variable>.ChangeMode with the drawAntiAliasing constant), the outline is drawn over 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.
