Scaling rectangle

Hi,

I drew a rectangle in a TImage object.

The size of TImage is for example width = W and Height = H.

The rectangle has 4 coordinate positions, X1, Y1, X2, Y2.

Then, I proportionally shrink the TImage to be this size: width = W1 and Height = H1.

So, anyone know a formula to calculate the new X1, Y1, X2, and Y2, so the rectangle will still be proportional ?

Thanks

just from head, not tested, and maybe possible wrong

scalingfactor := NewHeight/OldHeight;

newX1 := x1*scalingfactor;
newY1 := y1*scalingfactor;
newX2 := y2*scalingfactor;
newY2 := y2*scalingfactor;

x := X*W1 div W;
x1 := X1*W1 div W;
y := y*H1 div H;
y1 := y1*H1 div H;

infact looking better in your calculation y must depend on Width scaling factor, that could be different from the height one...
SO

WSCalingFactor := NewWIdth/OldWIdth;
HSCalingFactor := NewHeight/OldHeight;

x1 := x1*WSCalingFactor;
x2 := x2*WScalingFactor;
y1 := y1*HSCalingFactor;
y2 := y2*HScalingFactor;

ops...NewWIdth div OldWIdth...etc. etc. (result must be integer, not real)

just use round or trunc

>WSCalingFactor := NewWIdth/OldWIdth;
>HSCalingFactor := NewHeight/OldHeight;

i decided to use one scalingfactor, because
if the image is scaled proportional, then
WSCalingFactor and HSCalingFactor
should have the same value

Well, after I tried, it does not works :( not because the calculation, but because of the way TImage stretching :(

I cant get the W1 and H1 (width and height after stretched proportionally).

Original TImage size W * H

then I have newTImage with "smaller" size (let say Wx and Hx).
I assigned TImage to the newTImage, so that newTImage contains TImage bitmap.

But then, I cant get the stretched image size in newTImage.

I checked newTImage.Width , it will always Wx
I checked newTImage.Picture.Width, it will always W (the same with TImage.Width).

the picture width never changes,
only the visualizing of the TImage
is adjusted (autostretch-property is set to true)

if you want the picture scaled physically,
then use canvas-methods like

- Stretchdraw
- copyrect

or api like
- BitBlt

to create a new scaled picture

instead of autostretch i meant autosize

a sample

unit image_scale_u;

interface

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

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Panel1: TPanel;
    Panel2: TPanel;
    Splitter1: TSplitter;
    Panel3: TPanel;
    Image1: TImage;
    Image2: TImage;
    Button1: TButton;
    TrackBar1: TTrackBar;
    OpenDialog1: TOpenDialog;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
    procedure TrackBar1Change(Sender: TObject);
  private
    procedure scale;
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}


//scaling routine, craeting a scaled image
procedure TForm1.scale;
var bmp : TBitmap;
begin
  image2.Picture := nil; //clear content;
  bmp := TBitmap.Create;
  try
    bmp.Width := round(image1.Picture.Bitmap.Width*(trackbar1.Position/100));
    bmp.Height := round(image1.Picture.Bitmap.Height*(trackbar1.Position/100));
    //draw, not the fastest routine
    bmp.Canvas.CopyRect(Rect(0,0,bmp.Width, bmp.height),
                        image1.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas,
                        Rect(0,0,image1.Picture.Bitmap.width,image1.Picture.Bitmap.height));
    image2.Picture.Assign(bmp);  //show
  finally
    bmp.Free;
  end;
end;


//load a file
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if opendialog1.Execute then
  begin
    image1.Picture.Bitmap.LoadFromFile(opendialog1.filename);
    scale;
  end;
end;

//scale on trackbarchange (range: 0%-500%)
procedure TForm1.TrackBar1Change(Sender: TObject);
begin
  scale;
end;

end.
