Draw Line Over Pie Using GDI+

Hi

I am trying to draw a pie like shape on a form in the paint event. I am
then trying to draw a line running down the center of the pie. The code I
have attached at the bottom of this post does just this but there is
something wrong somewhere as when I resize the form, the line does not stay
over the center of the pie as expected.

I should imagine its just a case of something round the wrong way but I just
can't find what could be wrong.

Regards, Carl Gilbert

Imports System.Math

Dim percentFromCent er As Integer = 80
Dim angle As Integer = 45
Dim span As Integer = 20
Dim cx As Double = Me.ClientRectan gle.Width / 2
Dim cy As Double = Me.ClientRectan gle.Height / 2
Dim theta, xMiddle, yMiddle As Double
'CENTRE LINE
theta = 45 * (PI / 180)
xMiddle = cx + cx * Cos(theta) * (percentFromCen ter / 100)
yMiddle = cy + cy * Sin(theta) * (percentFromCen ter / 100)
e.Graphics.Fill Pie(Brushes.Yel low, Me.ClientRectan gle, (angle - (span / 2)),
span)
e.Graphics.Draw Line(Pens.Black , New PointF(cx, cy), New PointF(xMiddle,
yMiddle))
End Sub
Private Sub Form1_Resize(By Val sender As Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArg s) Handles Me.Resize
Me.Invalidate()
End Sub
End Class

Hi, I have an inherited DataGrid, that does lots of extra stuff. For exemple drawing a backgroundimage in every cell. The problem is that it's taking too much time (using gdi+), so I want to do it using DirectX. I downloaded already the DSK etc, but I can't find how I need to draw an image on a given position. I don't need stuff to write advanced 3D-games, just painting that image. Can anybody help me with this? I'm already looking for...

Is it possible to draw directly to the screen using the .net libraries? I thought that it might be possible with GDI+ but I can't find out how to do it anywhere. A part of me suspects I may have to look into using the Windows API. Any ideas, Darrell

Hi, I have an Image that is drawn with Graphics.DrawImage(..). What I want to do is drawing it with a given transparency, e.g. at an alpha of only 180 instead of 255. How am I doing that?!?!? Regards, Felix

Hi All, I am sure this is a simple question, but how do I draw a line onto a windows form in VB.NET, or any shape for that matter. VB6 had a line and shape control that you could use. Thanks, Steve

I wanted to draw an ellipse using c# with System.Drawing.Graphics. I tried out several tutorials and none of them worked and there seems to be something missing.

I want the draw ellipse function to be in some other class,say Shapes( user-defined) and then call it in the...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
