round rectangle drawing algorithm needed!!!

I've written a roundrect algorithm which takes 6 arguments: Device Context, 4 CPoints, and angle (in degree) but I couldn't get it right, there must be cracks somewhere... so... i'm wondering is there any precoded algorithm to draw round rect (rotatable) or capsule??

1) You rotate the DC.
2) Draw your rotated content.
3) Rotate back.
4) Draw your non-rotated content.

Using the Platform SDK method "SetWorldTransform" you can accomplish what you want!

From MSDN lib:

SetWorldTransform
The SetWorldTransform function sets a two-dimensional linear transformation between world space and page space for the specified device context. This transformation can be used to scale, rotate, shear, or translate graphics output.

BOOL SetWorldTransform(
  HDC hdc,               // handle to device context
  CONST XFORM *lpXform   // transformation data
);

waitt... from function's name, if i'm not mistaken... you use SetWorldTransform to transform the whole coordinate of the Device Context, arent you? so what if I want to transfrom only certain primitives and not all ??

Are you tired of cycling through the same browser tabs everyday to close the same repetitive tickets? In this webinar JumpCloud will show how you can leverage RESTful APIs to build your own PowerShell modules to kill tickets & tabs using the PowerShell command Invoke-RestMethod.

does it sacrifice much processing time??

jacobkristensenCommented:
Well, of course it does take some processing time, but compared to having to write all the trivial drawing methods yourself (you can use all the standard medthods), it's probably worth it.

Also, if you are looking for optimization, maybe you can group the objects together (assuming several of them needs to be drawn in the same angle), to minimize rotation.

Does your app (graphics) need to be high performance?
