<X coordinate>: Integer
Horizontal position (in pixels) of the point to draw.
<Y coordinate>: Integer
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 corresponds to:
If this parameter is not specified, the color of the point:
  • is Transparent if dPen was not used beforehand,
  • corresponds to the color specified in the last call to 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.
Note: This opacity will be taken into account if the drawing found in the image was initialized with the dWithOpacity constant (dStartDrawing).

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
    iPhone/iPad 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.
