Parameters

Parameter Description Example value

x Origin of the x-axis $x

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.

See also SkewCoords function in DynaPDF manual.

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 )
