Arc

Draws an arc of an ellipse inscribed in a rectangle with corners at (x1,y1) and (x2,y2). The arc boundaries are clipped by lines from the center of the ellipse, which extend to two points with coordinates (x3,y3) and (x4,y4).

   const uint  clr      // color
   );

Parameters

x1

[in]  X coordinate of the top left corner forming the rectangle.

y1

[in]  Y coordinate of the top left corner forming the rectangle.

x2

[in]  X coordinate of the bottom right corner forming the rectangle.

y2

[in]  Y coordinate of the bottom right corner forming the rectangle.

x3

[in]  X coordinate of the first point, to which a line from the rectangle center is drawn in order to obtain the arc boundary.

y3

[in]  Y coordinate of the first point, to which a line from the rectangle center is drawn in order to obtain the arc boundary.

x4

[in]  X coordinate of the second point, to which a line from the rectangle center is drawn in order to obtain the arc boundary.

y4

[in]  Y coordinate of the second point, to which a line from the rectangle center is drawn in order to obtain the arc boundary.

clr

[in]  Color in ARGB format. Use the ColorToARGB() function to convert a color into the ARGB format.

 

Draws an arc of an ellipse with center at point (x,y), inscribed in rectangle, with radii rx and ry. The arc boundaries are cropped from the ellipse center using rays formed by angles fi3 and fi4.

void  Arc(
   int         x,       // X coordinate of the ellipse center
   int         y,       // Y coordinate of the ellipse center
   int         rx,      // ellipse radius on the X axis
   int         ry,      // ellipse radius on the Y axis
   int         fi3,     // angle of ray from ellipse center, which defines the first boundary of the arc
   int         fi4,     // angle of ray from ellipse center, which defines the second boundary of the arc
   const uint  clr      // color
   );

Draws an arc of an ellipse with center at point (x,y), inscribed in rectangle, with radii rx and ry, and also returns the coordinates of the arc boundaries. The arc boundaries are cropped from the ellipse center using rays formed by angles fi3 and fi4.

   int         y,       // Y coordinate of the ellipse center
   int         rx,      // ellipse radius on the X axis
   int         ry,      // ellipse radius on the Y axis
   int         fi3,     // angle of ray from ellipse center, which defines the first boundary of the arc
   int         fi4,     // angle of ray from ellipse center, which defines the second boundary of the arc
   int&        x3,      // X coordinate of the first arc boundary
   int&        y3,      // Y coordinate of the first arc boundary
   int&        x4,      // X coordinate of the second arc boundary
   int&        y4,      // Y coordinate of the second arc boundary
   const uint  clr      // color
   );
