Drawing a rectangle by specifying the coordinates of rectangle Hide the details

<Image variable>.DrawRectangle(<X1> , <Y1> , <X2> , <Y2> [, <Background> [, <Line>]])
<Image variable>: Image variable
Name of the Image variable to use.
<X1>: Integer
X coordinate (in pixels) of top left corner of rectangle.
<Y1>: Integer
Y coordinate (in pixels) of top left corner of rectangle.
<X2>: Integer
X coordinate (in pixels) of bottom right corner of rectangle.
<Y2>: Integer
Y coordinate (in pixels) of bottom right corner of rectangle.
<Background>: Integer, constant or Background variable (optional)
  • Background color of rectangle. This color can be:
  • Characteristics of background:
    • Versions 21 and later
      iPhone/iPadUniversal Windows 10 App Background variable. In this case, the gradient defined in the variable is ignored.

<Line>: Integer, constant or Border variable (optional)
  • Color of rectangle line. This color can be:
  • Characteristics of the line:
    • Versions 21 and later
      iPhone/iPad Border variable. In this case, only the following properties are taken into account:
      • Color: if the property corresponds to the ColorUndefined constant, the color defined during the last call to <Image variable>.Pen is used. If this function was not used, the background color of the rectangle is used.
      • Thickness: if the property corresponds to the ThicknessUndefined constant, the thickness defined during the last call to <Image variable>.Pen will be used. If this function was not used, the thickness is set to 1.
      • Line: if the property corresponds to the LineUndefined constant, the type of line defined during the last call to <Image variable>.Pen is used. If this function was not used, the line is a solid line.
