object that will send output to a metafile while reading attributes from a physical device.
Member functions are also provided for drawing text, working with fonts, using printer escapes, scrolling, and playing metafiles.
Print preview is implemented in the framework in a similar fashion.
You can also use the two device contexts in a similar way in your application-specific code.
The length of the arc is defined by the given start and sweep angles.
moves the current position to the ending point of the arc.
There are times when you may need text-metric information from both the .
GDI automatically terminates the operation before returning the error value.The actual starting point of the arc is the point at which a ray drawn from the center of the bounding rectangle through the specified starting point intersects the ellipse.The actual ending point of the arc is the point at which a ray drawn from the center of the bounding rectangle through the specified ending point intersects the ellipse. Since an arc is not a closed figure, it is not filled.A comment may include any private information — for example, the source of the picture and the date it was created.A comment should begin with an application signature, followed by the data.The arc drawn by this function may appear to be elliptical, depending on the current transformation and mapping mode.
