Routines / Drawing Ovals


To paint an oval with the graphics pen's pattern and pattern mode, use the PaintOval procedure.

PROCEDURE PaintOval (r:\xDDRect);
The rectangle that defines the oval's boundary.
Using the pen pattern and pattern mode for the current graphics port, the PaintOval procedure draws the interior of an oval just inside the bounding rectangle that you specify in the r parameter. The pen location does not change.

The PaintOval procedure may move or purge memory blocks in the application heap. Your application should not call this procedure at interrupt time.

You can use the FillOval procedure, described next, to draw the interior of an oval with a pen pattern different from that for the current graphics port.
