<X coordinate>: entier
Horizontal position (in pixels) of the point to draw.
<Y coordinate>: entier
Vertical position (in pixels) of the point to draw.
<Point color>: Integer or constant (optional)
Color that must be assigned to the point. This color can correspond to:
If this parameter is not specified, the color of the point:
  • is Transparent if function dPen has not been used before,
  • corresponds to the Color specified in the last call to function dPen.
<Opacity>: Optional integer
Opacity of color, included between 0 (transparent) and 255 (opaque). An opacity sets to 128 indicates that the relevant pixel will have a transparency of 50% when it is drawn on the screen or saved in an image in PNG format.
Remark: This opacity will be taken into account if the drawing found in the image was initialized by the dWithOpacity constant (dStartDrawing).

Coordinates

Coordinates are given with respect to the top left corner of the image (coordinates: (0.0)).

Using the drawing functions

The drawing functions can be used according to 2 methods:
  • Method 1: Using dStartDrawing
    • dStartDrawing must be called before any other drawing function. dStartDrawing is used to define the element (Image control or variable) to 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.

PHP

Pattern and PHP

In PHP, the drawing functions are based on the graphic library GD. This library is commonly used by the PHP hosting companies and therefore it is always enabled. The version of the GD library must be version 2.0.28 (or later). This library can be downloaded from the PHP site.
To enable (if necessary) this library locally, the following elements are required:
  • PHP installed.
  • the PHP.INI file found in the Windows directory must contain the following line: "extension=php_gd2.dll" (instead of ";extension=php_gd2.dll").
  • the php_gd2.dll file must exist in the directory of PHP extensions. This directory is defined in the PHP.INI file by the "extension_dir" variable.
