Example
MyImage is Image = "Test.gif"
 
// Draws a rectangle in an Image variable and erases it
MyImage.ChangeMode(drawXOR)
// Displays the rectangle (in XOR mode)
MyImage.DrawRectangle(0, 0, 100, 100)
Multitask(10)
// Erases the rectangle
MyImage.DrawRectangle(0, 0, 100, 100)
 
IMG_MyDrawing = MyImage
Syntax
<Image variable>.ChangeMode(<New mode>)
<Image variable>: Image variable
Name of the Image variable to use.
<New mode>: Integer constant
Mode for drawing in the image:
drawAntiAliasingUses the GDI+ and/or the features of the video card to draw the lines and the circles without jagged effects. This drawing mode is slower but the results are better than with the standard mode.
Java Constant not available.
drawDefaultStandard colors.
drawXORColors applied via an "exclusive or" operation with the background. Erases a drawing if this option is used twice.
CAUTION: This drawing mode is not compatible with the management of opacity (the drawing is not erased anymore).
Caution:
  • The drawing in XOR mode is available for the Image controls only. The drawing in XOR mode is not available for the Image variables.
  • The drawXOR constant cannot be combined with the drawAntiAliasing constant.

Anti-aliasing

The anti-aliasing consists in drawing the lines and the circles without jagged effects. This feature requires the GDI+ framework (which means the WINDEV framework).
Versions 16 and later

New in version 16

Example:
Limits:
  • <Image variable>.DrawChord is not supported in this mode.
  • To avoid the jagged edges, the colors and the lines of elements are smoothed out. Some drawing functions can have an unexpected behavior because the specified colors are no longer found. For example, if a borderline color is specified for <Image variable>.Fill, this color is not found: the entire area is filled up.
  • In the case of a drawing with anti-aliasing, <Image variable>.DrawPolygon and <Image variable>.DrawSlice have the following behavior. The outline 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.
  • See GDI+ framework for more details on the use of GDI+.
