GraphicsPath::AddArc method

The GraphicsPath::AddArc method adds an elliptical arc to the current figure of this path.

Syntax

Status AddArc(
  IN REAL x,
  IN REAL y,
  IN REAL width,
  IN REAL height,
  IN REAL startAngle,
  IN REAL sweepAngle
);

Parameters

x

Type: REAL

Real number that specifies the x-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the bounding rectangle for the ellipse that contains the arc.

y

Type: REAL

Real number that specifies the y-coordinate of the upper-left corner of the bounding rectangle for the ellipse that contains the arc.

width

Type: REAL

Real number that specifies the width of the bounding rectangle for the ellipse that contains the arc.

height

Type: REAL

Real number that specifies the height of the bounding rectangle for the ellipse that contains the arc.

startAngle

Type: REAL

Real number that specifies the clockwise angle, in degrees, between the horizontal axis of the ellipse and the starting point of the arc.

sweepAngle

Type: REAL

Real number that specifies the clockwise angle, in degrees, between the starting point (startAngle) and the ending point of the arc.

Return Value

Type: Type: Status

If the method succeeds, it returns Ok, which is an element of the Status enumeration.

If the method fails, it returns one of the other elements of the Status enumeration.
