Set Coordinates For Each Beam At Intervals Of 610 Then Write That Coordinates System To A Text Based *.SCR File

Dec 2, 2010

I am trying to build a coordinates system but am having trouble with how to.. What I have sofar is a textbox that allows the user to enter a length. This length is user defined but never smaller then 610 in length since this is the minimum unit size we use to build timber frames. The overall length of a timber frame is infinite (well not really, but it is for what I want) the timber frame has beams every 610mm set apart from each other (this is a legal requirement) so I want my to set coordinates for each beam at intervals of 610 then write that coordinates system to a text based *.SCR file

IDE :: Getting The Screen Coordinates?

Apr 13, 2010

it is designed to be able to interact with foreground windows and display certain bits of information as each foreground window is displayed. The foreground window will most of the time NOT be a windows form so this makes things that bit more trickier for me. The program below doesn't produce any errors but the problem arises when I try and get the X, Y coordinates of the cursor, at the moment when ever the cursor is moved around I get a very long number as the X and nothing returned for my Y. I find I can set the X,Y coordinates to anywhere on the screen, can also get the foreground forms title,it's RECT coordinates but need to get the cursor info correctly.

Option Explicit On
Imports System.Text
Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices

Derive Coordinates From An Array Value?

I've got an array that contains the following:


but it can also be that this array contains this:


So first I do a split on ";"

If Ubound(array)= 4 then I now the second case with coordinates is valid... in this case 2 sets of 4 coordinates

How do I derive them from array(4) as xstart0,ystart0,xend0,yend0 and xstart1,ystart1,xend1,yend1 ???

Do I need to do another split on "#" first and then on the "," ?

Get Mouse Coordinates On A Control Behind An Another?

Dec 23, 2011

Is there any way to get the mouse coordinates on a control behind an another control.

The exact scenario is, I have a picture box of size 1024*1024 and and an another picture box of size 256*256 over the bigger picture box (of size 1024*1024). Now, when I move my mouse over smaller picture box, I want the mouse coordinates with respect to the bigger picture box behind the smaller picture box on which the mouse is moved.

Printing Coordinates For RTL Using The PrintDocument?

Sep 20, 2009

I'm sending a rtl text "Arabic" to a receipt printer. My problem is in selecting left and top coordinates for each line. If the paper width changes the whole procedure needs to be written for that specific width, because I'm measuring form the left edge. Is there a way in the printDocument object that flips the starting point from left to right?

p.s. the format string in the args.Graphics.DrawString() only select the direction of the printed string in case it has some numbers and symbols but it doesn't start the string from the right edge of the page.

WM Mousedown At Specific Coordinates

Determine An Image's Screen Coordinates?

May 11, 2012

I have an image resembling a chessboard inside a picturebox displayed on the screen at runtime. I am using Visual Basic in Visual Studio 2008. I need to determine when a user clicks on a particular part of the image. I am able to do this without a problem when debugging on my computer, where I can experiment with trial-and-error clicking to get the screen coordinates of the portion of the image of interest. Everything changes, however, when the program is run on a screen with a different resolution and coordinates.

I can easily get the coordinates for the picturebox that contains the image using PointToScreen. However, there seems to be no such property for the image within the picturebox, which is what I need.

Display World Coordinates In A Text Box?

Mar 31, 2011

At the minute I can display the mouse position using Cusor.Position.ToString() but my screen resolution is widescreem - 1360:768. What about about someone with a standard 1024:768? If I use my application on other computers, it won't work because it deeply depends on mouse co-ordinates

I am aware of a world coordinate system (or something) that will work on all screen resolutions. To use this (which I will need to) I will need to change all of my coordinates in the code? So I'll need to display it in a text box like I did with Cusor.Position.ToString() but what code can I use to get the world coordinate?

There is something like PoibntToScreen and PointToClient but what do these do exactly and how do I use them? I tried using

MouseCoordinates_tssl.Text = "Mouse Coordinates: " + "{X:" + PointToScreen(New Point(Cursor.Position.X, Cursor.Position.Y)).X.ToString + "; Y:" + PointToScreen(New Point(Cursor.Position.X, Cursor.Position.Y)).Y.ToString + ";}"
but much to my disappointment, it didn't work. What could I do that would work?

Drawing PolygonHotSpot Coordinates Around Two Rectangles?

Feb 2, 2011

Lets say that I've got the coordinates of two Rectangles, they could be right next to each other or have space between them. I need to draw a PolygonHotSpot around the two rectangles (so it will only cover the two rectangles and the space between them). I've come to find that I have to give the coordinates a clockwise order around the entire polygon, rather than around each rectangle (which works fine for a single rectangle).

So given a list of coordinates, is there a way to get them into the order that I need for there to not be any gaps in my PolygonHotSpot?

Picturebox Cursor Coordinates Wrong In Win 7

Oct 25, 2010

With VB2008 I am working with a picturebox that I am capturing the pointer position on a mouseup event. I am using the following to get the mouse location

Private Sub PictureBox1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles PictureBox1.MouseUp
Dim mp As Point = PictureBox1.PointToClient(MousePosition)
End Sub

This appeared to work fine until I tested it on a Windows 7 system. The mouse position it captures is wrong (is offset from the actual click). If you make multiple clicks, they are positioned correctly relatively to each other, but they are skewed away from the point(s) you are actually clicking. It�s like they are off a fixed amount. It works 100% in Win XP. Could it have something to do with the Aero theme on Win 7? Would this happen to be a known issue or result from a common coding mistake?

Reading Text File With Given Coordinates

Apr 28, 2011

I have a problem related to a project work of field observations of points. So I have a text file (file.txt) of coordinates X and Y of vertexes (separated by a comma like below):
X, Y
12.2 , 13.1
15.4 , 19.3
13.6 , 12.5
(and so on to 15 lines of x's and y's)

I need a program which can read this text.txt file with the given coordinates and store them as 2 generic lists using Loop and Split function and also the program should display the data read from text.txt file into a multiline text box. Next the program has to use the 2 lists to be passed to a function that first calculates the average values for the coordinates X and Y, and then work out the areas of triangles by = 1/2 SUM [ (xb-xR)(ya-yR)-(yb-yR)(xa-xR) ] where x/y ''a'' is the current vertex and x/y ''b'' is the next vertex in the polygon. I presume the program has to loop around the whole polygon to vertices to summing up the areas of the triangles and at the end multiply by 1/2 and give the positive modulus or ABS() of the area.
