Bitmap Patterns

Presently there are 128 built-in bitmap patterns to choose from which can be accessed by entering a pattern ID between 1 and 128. The pattern ID is entered by using the argument colorVariant — part of numerous xmCHART functions. For example:

AddRect(10;​10;​200;​120;​;​56) /* Black&white pattern ID: 56 */

AddRect(10;​10;​200;​120;​;​123) /* Color pattern ID: 123 */

Black & White Patterns

The 64 black & white patterns can be referenced by a pattern ID between 1 and 64. Several frequently used patterns can also be accessed by name. For example:

AddRect(10;​10;​200;​120;​;​8)

AddRect(10;​10;​200;​120;​;​lightGray) /* Same as line above. */

The color and transparency of the pattern can be controlled by the argument color. For example:

AddRect(10;​10;​200;​120;​red;​9) /* Red dots on a white background. */

AddRect(10;​10;​200;​120;​255 0 0 100;​9) /* Red dots on a translucent background. */

By using pattern ID 1 or constant transparent the fill can be suppressed. For example:

FillStyle(1;​;​transparent) /* Same as FillStyle(1;none) */

FillStyle(1;​;​1) /* Same as line above. */

Color Patterns

The 64 color patterns can be referenced by a pattern ID between 65 and 128. For example:

AddRect(10;​10;​200;​120;​;​65)

AddRect(10;​10;​200;​120;​;​123)

The transparency of the pattern can be controlled by the alpha value of the argument color. The three RGB components in color are ignored. For example:

AddRect(10;​10;​200;​120;​0 0 0 100;​120)
