  • Section - Stroked rectangle primitive

    A stroked rectangle primitive is a kind of primitive.

    The specification of stroked rectangle primitive is "A stroked rectangle primitive is a type of g-element. It draws a rectangle of color, outlined by a second color. The rectangle is specified from an origin coordinate in the upper left corner to an endpoint in the lower right corner. These coordinate pair properties are each specified using list formatting, e.g. {20, 10}. The color of the inner area is specified using the 'tint' property, while the outline is specified by the 'background tint'. Both of these are glulx color values (see the Glulx Text Effects extension). The width of the line used to draw the outline is specified using the 'line-weight' property. The line-weight will be scaled along with the canvas; that is, if the line-weight is specified as 4 pixels wide and the canvas must be scaled to 50% to fit in the window, the actual displayed width of the line will be 2 pixels."

    A stroked rectangle primitive has a glulx color value called the background tint. The background tint is usually g-White.

    A stroked rectangle primitive has a number called the line-weight. The line-weight of a stroked rectangle primitive is 1.

    [The stroke is a scaled value, presented in the coordinate system of the window rather than of the canvas. They are recalculated every time the window is redrawn and under most circumstances should not be specified by the author.]

    A stroked rectangle primitive has a number called the stroke. The stroke of a stroked rectangle primitive is 1.

    An element display rule for a stroked rectangle primitive (called the stroked rectangle):
        #if utilizing Glimmr debugging;
        say "[>console][CBD]Drawing stroked rectangle primitive [i][stroked rectangle][/i], color [color tint of the stroked rectangle], in [i][current window][/i] with upper left ([win-x], [win-y]) and lower right ([end-x], [end-y]), scaled line-weight [stroke] px[if the stroked rectangle is graphlinked].

        strectdraw (color tint of the stroked rectangle) in (current window) from (win-x) by (win-y) to (end-x) by (end-y) with (stroke) stroke of (color background tint);
        if the stroked rectangle is graphlinked:
            set a graphlink in the current window identified as the stroked rectangle from win-x by win-y to end-x by end-y as the linked replacement-command of the stroked rectangle.
