Routines / Drawing Rectangles


To paint a rectangle with the graphics pen's pattern and pattern mode, use the PaintRect procedure.

PROCEDURE PaintRect (r:\xDDRect);
The rectangle to paint.
The PaintRect procedure draws the interior of the rectangle that you specify in the r parameter with the pen pattern for the current graphics port, according to the pattern mode for the current graphics port. The pen location does not change.

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

Listing 3-5 on page 3-20 illustrates how to use this procedure.

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