Hi, how do I draw a user defined polygon ? The user clicks
with the mouse on some points. Then a polygon should be drawn. How do I add the points to the polygon and how do I create an array for them ? Source ?

Hi ItsMe,

This is a way :

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls, ExtCtrls;

const
  MaxPoints = 10;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    PaintBox1: TPaintBox;
    StorePoly: TButton;
    DrawPoly: TButton;
    Memo1: TMemo;
    procedure StorePolyClick(Sender: TObject);
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
    procedure DrawPolyClick(Sender: TObject);
    procedure PaintBox1MouseDown(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
      Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
    StoringMode : Boolean;
    PolygonArray : Array[0..MaxPoints-1] of TPoint;
    PointNumber : 0..MaxPoints-1;
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.StorePolyClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
 {clear canvas}
 with paintbox1.canvas do begin
  Brush.Color := clWhite;
  FillRect(clipRect);
 end;
 memo1.lines.clear;
{clear polygonarray}
 FillChar(PolygonArray,SizeOf(PolygonArray),0);
 PointNumber := 0;
{start storing polygon  }
 storingMode := true;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
 StoringMode := false;
end;

procedure TForm1.DrawPolyClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
 {draw the polygon}
 storingMode := false;
 memo1.Lines.Add('Now drawing Polygon');
 with paintbox1.canvas do begin
  Brush.Color := clBlack;
  Polygon(Slice(PolygonArray,PointNumber));
 end;
end;

procedure TForm1.PaintBox1MouseDown(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
begin
 {Store X,Y value in grid}
 if StoringMode then begin
  if PointNumber < MaxPoints then begin
   PolygonArray[PointNumber].X := X;
   PolygonArray[PointNumber].Y := Y;
   Inc(PointNumber);
   {show point}
   PaintBox1.Canvas.Pixels[X,Y] := clRed;
   {put point in memo}
   memo1.Lines.Add('Pointnr. : '+IntToStr(PointNumber)+
                   ' at position [X:'+IntToStr(X)+', Y:'+IntToStr(Y)+']');
  end
   else showmessage('sorry polygon points are limited to: '+IntToStr(MaxPoints));
  end
   else showmessage('please press StorePoly button to start defining the polygon');
end;

end.

Regards, Zif.
