Before you begin:
The code is based on custom GDI+ class. Download the class module first and save it in gdiplus.prg file.

  • extending user interface: controls that shake
  • scaling images
  • cropping images
  • rotating images


    A transformation is a process that changes graphics objects from one state to another.

    Rotation, scaling, reflection, translation, and shearing are some examples of transformation.

    Transformations can be applied to graphics shapes, curves, images and to image colors.
