Functions for wxGraphicsContext class

Description

A wxGraphicsContext instance is the object that is drawn upon. It is created by a renderer using wxGraphicsRenderer:createContext/2. This can be either directly using a renderer instance, or indirectly using the static convenience create/1 functions of wxGraphicsContext that always delegate the task to the default renderer.

Remark: For some renderers (like Direct2D or Cairo) processing of drawing operations may be deferred (Direct2D render target normally builds up a batch of rendering commands but defers processing of these commands, Cairo operates on a separate surface) so to make drawing results visible you need to update the content of the context by calling wxGraphicsContext::Flush() (not implemented in wx) or by destroying the context.

See: wxGraphicsRenderer:createContext/2, wxGCDC, wxDC

This class is derived (and can use functions) from: wxGraphicsObject

wxWidgets docs: wxGraphicsContext

Data Types

wxGraphicsContext() = wx:wx_object()

Exports

destroy(This :: wxGraphicsContext()) -> ok

Creates a wxGraphicsContext from a wxWindow.

See: wxGraphicsRenderer:createContext/2

create() -> wxGraphicsContext()

Create a lightweight context that can be used only for measuring text.

create(WindowDC) -> wxGraphicsContext()
Types:

WindowDC =
   wxWindowDC:wxWindowDC() |
   wxWindow:wxWindow() |
   wxMemoryDC:wxMemoryDC() |
   wxImage:wxImage()

Creates a wxGraphicsContext from a wxWindowDC.

See: wxGraphicsRenderer:createContext/2

createPen(This, Pen) -> wxGraphicsPen:wxGraphicsPen()
Types:

This = wxGraphicsContext()
Pen = wxPen:wxPen()

Creates a native pen from a wxPen.

Prefer to use the overload taking wxGraphicsPenInfo (not implemented in wx) unless you already have a wxPen as constructing one only to pass it to this method is wasteful.

createBrush(This, Brush) -> wxGraphicsBrush:wxGraphicsBrush()
Types:

This = wxGraphicsContext()
Brush = wxBrush:wxBrush()

Creates a native brush from a wxBrush.

createRadialGradientBrush(This, StartX, StartY, EndX, EndY,
                          Radius, Stops) ->
                             wxGraphicsBrush:wxGraphicsBrush()
Types:

This = wxGraphicsContext()
StartX = StartY = EndX = EndY = Radius = number()
Stops = wxGraphicsGradientStops:wxGraphicsGradientStops()

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It differs from the above function only in what argument(s) it accepts.

createRadialGradientBrush(This, StartX, StartY, EndX, EndY,
                          Radius, OColor, CColor) ->
                             wxGraphicsBrush:wxGraphicsBrush()
Types:

This = wxGraphicsContext()
StartX = StartY = EndX = EndY = Radius = number()
OColor = CColor = wx:wx_colour()

Creates a native brush with a radial gradient. The brush originates at (@a startX, @a startY) and ends on a circle around (@a endX, @a endY) with the given @a radius. The gradient may be specified either by its start and end colours @a oColor and @a cColor or by a full set of gradient @a stops. The version taking wxGraphicsGradientStops is new in wxWidgets 2.9.1.

The ability to apply a transformation matrix to the gradient was added in 3.1.3

createLinearGradientBrush(This, X1, Y1, X2, Y2, Stops) ->
                             wxGraphicsBrush:wxGraphicsBrush()
Types:

This = wxGraphicsContext()
X1 = Y1 = X2 = Y2 = number()
Stops = wxGraphicsGradientStops:wxGraphicsGradientStops()

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It differs from the above function only in what argument(s) it accepts.

createLinearGradientBrush(This, X1, Y1, X2, Y2, C1, C2) ->
                             wxGraphicsBrush:wxGraphicsBrush()
Types:

This = wxGraphicsContext()
X1 = Y1 = X2 = Y2 = number()
C1 = C2 = wx:wx_colour()

Creates a native brush with a linear gradient. The brush starts at (@a x1, @a y1) and ends at (@a x2, @a y2). Either just the start and end gradient colours (@a c1 and @a c2) or full set of gradient @a stops can be specified. The version taking wxGraphicsGradientStops is new in wxWidgets 2.9.1.

The matrix parameter was added in wxWidgets 3.1.3

createFont(This, Font) -> wxGraphicsFont:wxGraphicsFont()
Types:

Types:

This = wxGraphicsContext()
Font = wxFont:wxFont()
Option = {col, wx:wx_colour()}

Creates a native graphics font from a wxFont and a text colour.

Remark: For Direct2D graphics fonts can be created from TrueType fonts only.

createFont(This, SizeInPixels, Facename, Options :: [Option]) ->

The use of overload taking wxFont is preferred, see wxGraphicsRenderer:createFont/4 for more details.
