I'm looking for a component with an IDE design-time editor, which allows one to place (rotated) polygon shapes anywhere on the form. That's basically all! :)
I have a big form covered by a big TImage. The image displays a city map. I have a round shape (TShape) which is placed somewhere on the image by mapping lang/lat to pixel coordinates with a GPS receiver. Now the map has certain areas of interest highlighted.
I figured, easiest way to determine if the object is currently located within a certain area of interest is by placing fixed polygon shapes above the image and checking if the middle of the TShape circle is located within the client aerea of any of the polygon shapes.
Any suggestions are welcome!! (e.g. if there is an even more efficient way to accomplish this task)
Thanks so much!
