MBS( "DynaPDF.SkewCoords"; PDF; a; b; x; y )

Parameters

Parameter Description Example value
PDF The PDF reference returned from DynaPDF.New. $pdf
a Angle alpha in degrees 10
b Angle beta in degrees 10
x Origin of the x-axis $x
y Origin of the y-axis $y

Result

Returns OK on success and error on failure.

Description

The function skews the coordinate system and sets the coordinate origin to the point OriginX, OriginY.
It is highly recommended to save the graphics state beforehand, otherwise it is very difficult or impossible to restore the coordinate system later.
After the coordinate system was changed by the function, bottom-up coordinates are active. It is not possible to use top-down coordinates with a skewed coordinate system.
Please do not try to scale/skew/translate back later. use DynaPDF.SaveGraphicState and DynaPDF.RestoreGraphicState.

Examples

Skew and draw rectangle:

MBS( "DynaPDF.SaveGraphicState"; $PDF )
MBS( "DynaPDF.SkewCoords"; $PDF; 20; 20; 200;200)
MBS( "DynaPDF.Rectangle"; $PDF; 0; 0; 200; 100; "stroke" )
MBS( "DynaPDF.RestoreGraphicState"; $PDF )
