Drawing ovals, calculating circumference, recording x,y co-ords of along the circumference
I need to be able to generate an oval on a VB form that appears on a slant. By slant I mean... The oval will always be taller than it is wide and the top will always be on the left side of the form when compared to the bottom. Therefore, giving the oval the appearance of being positioned at a 135 degree angle roughly on the screen.
The second part of this is that I need to be able to calculate the circumference of the oval generated so I can make calculations on placing labels around the oval with equal spacing between them.
The last piece of this is that I need to be able to say that if I want to place a label X number of pixels (unit of measurement is irrelevant and will be determined by the second part of this question) from the top of the oval then the X and Y co-ords for the label will be...
Thanks in advance! I've been strugggling with this for a while.
