Instance Method


Draws the receiver's image data at the specified point in the current coordinate system.


- (BOOL)drawAtPoint:(NSPoint)point;



The point in the current coordinate system at which to draw the image.

Return Value

YES if the image was successfully drawn; otherwise, NO. If the size of the image has not yet been set, this method returns NO immediately


This method sets the origin of the current coordinate system to the specified point and then invokes the receiver’s draw method to draw the image at that point. Upon completion, it restores the current coordinates to their original setting. If aPoint is (0.0, 0.0), this method simply invokes the draw method.
