CHORD( x ,y ,width ,height ,startangle ,endangle [,fill] [,attributelist])

CHORD

Draws a closed sector of an ellipse on the current window or report.

X

An integer expression that specifies the horizontal position of the starting point.

Y

An integer expression that specifies the vertical position of the starting point.

Width

An integer expression that specifies the width.

Height

An integer expression that specifies the height.

startangle

An integer expression that specifies the starting point of the chord, in tenths of degrees (10 = 1 degree) measured counter-clockwise from three o'clock.

endangle

An integer expression that specifies the ending point of the chord, in tenths of degrees (10 = 1 degree) measured counter-clockwise from three o'clock.

Fill

A LONG integer constant, constant EQUATE, or variable containing the red, green, and blue components that create the color in the three low-order bytes (bytes 0, 1, and 2) or an EQUATE for a standard Windows color value.

attributelist

A string constant, variable, or EQUATE containing an optional type of output document and its associated attributes. Only valid when the target is a REPORT. See EXTEND

The CHORD procedure places a closed sector of an ellipse on the current window or report. This procedure is valid in Clarion Win32 Windows, and also for REPORT structures in both Clarion Win32 and Clarion#. The ellipse is drawn inside a "bounding box" defined by the x, y, width, and height parameters. The x and y parameters specify the starting point, and the width and height parameters specify the horizontal and vertical size of the "bounding box." The startangle and endangle parameters specify what sector of the ellipse will be drawn, as an arc. The two end points of the arc are also connected with a straight line.

The border color is the current pen color set by SETPENCOLOR; the default color is the Windows system color for window text. The border width is the current width set by SETPENWIDTH; the default width is one pixel. The border style is the current pen style set by SETPENSTYLE; the default style is a solid line.

Example:

MDIChild WINDOW('Child One'),AT(0,0,320,200),MDI,MAX,HVSCROLL

         !window controls
