<Image variable>.DrawPolygon(<Number of sides> , <X1> , <Y1> , <X2> , <Y2> [, <X3> , <Y3> [... [, <Xn> , <Yn>]]] [, <Background color> [, <Side color>]])
<Image variable>: Image variable
Name of the Image 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)
Polygon background color. 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:

Name of the Variable type Image to handle.
<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.
  • Java WLanguage array of Point variables containing the coordinates of polygon points. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Background color>: Integer or constant (optional)
Polygon background color. 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:

Remarks

Coordinates

Drawing a polygon:
MyImage.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 (function <Image variable>.StartDrawing with the constant dWithOpacity) or anti-aliasing (function <Image variable>.ChangeMode with the constant drawAntiAliasing), the contour 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.
