Example

MyImage is Image = "Test.gif" // Draw a circle section whose // background is light yellow and whose border is light blue MyImage.DrawSlice(10, 10, 50, 50, 20, 20, 40, 50, LightYellow, LightBlue) IMG_MyDrawing = MyImage

is identical to the color used for the background if <Image variable>.Pen has not been used.

Remarks

Coordinates

If the start point and the end point are not located on the border of the circle (or on the border of the ellipse), the point taken into account corresponds to 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).
Coordinates are given with respect to the top left corner of the image (coordinates: (0.0)).

The drawing sections are drawn anticlockwise.

Non-solid figure

To draw a non-solid figure (without taking into account the center of the circle), use <Image variable>.DrawChord.

Drawing with opacity or anti-aliasing

In the case of a drawing with opacity (<Image variable>.StartDrawing with the dWithOpacity constant) or anti-aliasing (<Image variable>.ChangeMode with the drawAntiAliasing constant), the outline is drawn over the inside of the section: therefore, the line is partly combined with the inside of the section. If the line is very thick, it will be displayed in two colors.
