Combining GDI+ Paths with different combine modes

4 posts in this topic

When I was thinking about selections in Photoshop, I saw the resemblance to selection modes in GDI+ Regions. Then, I started to think how to apply these combine modes to Paths. So, here is a small script for this:

What is the difference between your version and what is already added to the GDIPlus.au3 UDF?

_GDIPlus_RegionCombineRegion

_GDIPlus_RegionCombineRegion

 

Are regions and paths interchangeable?  His example uses Paths instead, but produces the same output (plus smoothing) as the help file example you pointed out.

@spudw2k: you are right. I just started the example and saw that it was the same as the _GDIPlus_RegionCombineRegion example and wondered but didn't look deeper to the GDIPlusPathCombine.au3 UDF.

      Here are two functions to provide pixel-accurate height and width dimensions for a given string.
      The more commonly-used _GDIPlus_GraphicsMeasureString built-in UDF is problematic because it returns the width padded by roughly one en-space (for reasons related to the various ways Windows produces anti-aliased fonts).
      These are AutoIt translations of Pierre Arnaud's C# functions, described in his CodeProject article "Bypass Graphics.MeasureString limitations"
      The first is an all-purpose version that takes a window handle, string, font family, font size (in points), style, and (optionally) width of the layout column (in pixels) as parameters.
      The second, more efficient version is intended for applications where GDI+ fonts are already in use, and takes handles to the existing graphics context, string, font, layout and format as parameters.
      Both functions return a two-row array with the exact width [0] and height [1] of the string (in pixels).

      sometimes!
      Running the script below and entering a for All seems to work every time Running it and choosing 1 for One returns a gibberish string However with the same functions, I have seen it succeed when 1 is chosen, i.e. show the value for the test property ID 0x0103 as OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I have also seen GetOne() succeed when a diagnostic MsgBox() is added,  and when I include my debugging functions, so the problem appears to be a memory location being overwritten, probably in a DLLStruct.. call.
      I know that value OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA is correct from Irfanview and from running GetAll().
      All but one of the _GDIPlus functions were written by ChrisL. I have modified those that returned a DLLStruct object such that they now return an array.
      Both getting one and getting  all involve calling _GDIPlus_ImageGetPropertyItemValue() which I wrote, so perhaps the problem partly lies with ChrisL's functions as modified.
      Suggestions?

      The following code is one of my many attempts to get the value of a string property from an image. It doesn't work. I know that IMAGEDESCRIPTION has a string value.
      In one of my many attempts, I did get the string OLYMPUS .., which I know is correct from IrfanView, but I can't get it again.
      How should I get this string?

      I have found that:
      there are 276 functions in Authenticity's GDIP.au3 (written for 3.3.6.1) that are not in 3.3.14.2's GDIPlus.au3.  there are many constants in his GDIPConstants.au3 that are not in 3.3.14.2's GDIPlus.au3, but there are some that are. So:
      GDIP extras.au3 contains functions that are not in GDIPlus.au3. They have been extracted from GDIP.au3 The revised GDIPConstants.au3 has constants that are duplicates of those in GDIPlus.au3 commented out. They are attached.
      I have done limited testing on 3.3.14.2 with GDIP extras.au3 and the revised GDIPConstants.au3 included.
      I have undertaken this effort in thanks for the help with GDI+ that I have received on this form, especially from UEZ.
      Authenticity's thread is here. For those who do not 7zip, I am attaching his GDIP as a zip file. It contains many examples.

      UEZ has kindly provided me with code that rotates an image per a line: see here
      Because I want to trim a photograph after rotation, I need to crop the photo. I wrote code which calls _GDIPlus_GraphicsSetClipRect() to do this, but it places spurious stuff in the corners: see 2.jpg attached.
      I want only the trimmed photo to show.
      The original jpeg is also attached.
      The arguments to _GDIPlus_GraphicsSetClipRect() come from solving 2 simultaneous equations: if a and b are the width and height of the original photo, find x and y, the width and height of the rotated and cropped rectangle;
      a = x cos(ang) + y sin(ang)
      b = x sin(ang) + y cos(ang)
      My solution is:
      x = (b * sin(ang) - a*cos(ang)) / (sin(ang)^2 - (cos(ang)^2)
      y = (b * cos(ang) - a * sin(ang)) / (cos(ang)^2 - sin(ang)^2)
      To try to get a handle on the problem, I have temporarily added in several lines in Case $btn. In 2.jpg, you can see that the rectangle bounding the area to be retained is in the wrong place.
      The code is:
