Syntax
dCircle([<Image>, ] <X1> , <Y1> , <X2> , <Y2> [, <Background color> [, <Line color>]])
<Image>: Optional control name or optional Image variable
Versions 24 and later
Reports and QueriesWindows Image to use. This image can correspond to:
  • the name of an Image control.
  • the name of an Image variable.
If this parameter is not specified, it is necessary to define the drawing destination with dStartDrawing.

If this parameter is not specified, it is necessary to define the drawing destination with dStartDrawing.
<X1>: Integer
X coordinate of top left corner of the rectangle containing the circle. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Y1>: Integer
Y coordinate of top left corner of the rectangle containing the circle. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<X2>: Integer
X coordinate of bottom right corner of the rectangle containing the circle. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Y2>: Integer
Y coordinate of bottom right corner of the rectangle containing the circle. These coordinates are expressed in pixels.
<Background color>: Integer or constant (optional)
Background color of circle. This color corresponds to:
If this parameter is not specified, the background color:
  • is Transparent if dBackground was not used beforehand,
  • corresponds to the color specified in the last call to dBackground.
<Line color>: Integer or constant (optional)
Color of circle line. This color corresponds to:
If this parameter is not specified, the line color:
  • corresponds to the color specified in the last call to dPen,
  • is identical to the background color if dPen was not used.
Remarks

Coordinates

The coordinates are specified in relation to the top left corner of the Image control (coordinates set to (0,0)).

Using the drawing functions

The drawing functions can be used according to 2 methods:
  • Method 1: Using dDrawing
    • dStartDrawing must be called before any other drawing function. dStartDrawing is used to define the element (Image control or Image variable) onto which the drawing functions will be applied.
    • When drawing on an Image control:
      • The drawing functions operate on a copy ("bitmap") of the image. You can use the drawing functions of Windows (via API or CallDLL32) but these functions must use the DC (Device Context) returned by dStartDrawing.
      • dEndDrawing and dStartDrawing must not be called in the same process.
        The drawing will not be displayed if dEndDrawing and dStartDrawing are called in the same process: it will be automatically erased.
  • Versions 24 and later
    Reports and QueriesWindows Method 2: indicating the drawing target directly in the syntax (via a parameter)
    The <Image> parameter is used to specify directly the target of the drawing. dStartDrawing becomes useless.
