hello i am a beginner in using MFC, i drew a hexagon in mfc using this code: ( a part of the code) m_StartPoint.x -= int(ceil(r));//50,100 m_EndPoint.y -= int(ceil(h)); //100,99 dc.MoveTo(m_StartPoint); dc.LineTo(m_EndPoint); m_EndPoint.y -= int(ceil(s)); //m_Endpoint:100,49 dc.LineTo(m_EndPoint); m_EndPoint.y -= int(ceil(h)); m_EndPoint.x -= int(ceil(r)); dc.LineTo(m_EndPoint); m_EndPoint.y += int(ceil(h)); m_EndPoint.x -= int(ceil(r)); dc.LineTo(m_EndPoint); m_EndPoint.y += int(ceil(s)); dc.LineTo(m_EndPoint); m_EndPoint.y += int(ceil(h)); m_EndPoint.x += int(ceil(r)); dc.LineTo(m_EndPoint); and it looks like the picture "hexagon.jpg" the question is how can i fill it with color, lets say in red? or even more how can i fill it with a small picture instead of coloring it? Any idea? thank you

For solid color, use CDC::FloodFill(). For an image, you'll have to set a clipping region to the shape of your hexagon and bitblt the image.

thx, but can u tell me how do i do that :set a clipping region to the shape of your hexagon and bitblt the image? can you tell me what should i add in this code: ---------------------------------------------------- Code: CClientDC dc(pntWnd); CPoint m_StartPoint = crdSouthEast;//(100,100) CPoint m_EndPoint = crdSouthEast; CPoint Temp; computeHexagonQuantities(hexagonSide);// POINT pts[6]; //Drawing m_StartPoint.x -= int(ceil(r)); int temp=int(ceil(r)); m_EndPoint.x =m_StartPoint.x+temp; m_EndPoint.y -= int(ceil(r)); pts[0]=m_StartPoint; pts[1]=m_EndPoint; m_EndPoint.x=m_StartPoint.x; m_EndPoint.y-= int(ceil(r)); pts[2]=m_EndPoint; m_EndPoint.x-=int(ceil(s)); pts[3]=m_EndPoint; Temp.x=m_EndPoint.x; m_EndPoint.x-=int(ceil(r)); m_EndPoint.y+= int(ceil(r)); pts[4]=m_EndPoint; m_EndPoint.x = Temp.x; m_EndPoint.y+= int(ceil(r)); pts[5]=m_EndPoint; m_EndPoint.x =m_StartPoint.x; m_EndPoint.y =m_StartPoint.y; dc.Polygon(pts,6); //PS //i loaded a bitmap in another cpp file by doing : CBitmap test; test.LoadBitmapW(IDB_BITMAP7);//IDB_BITMAP2 //this "test" is passed by reference in the class containing the above code... //so how to clipper and BitBlt it? thank you for your help

This paints a bitmap defined in resources as IDB_BITMAP1 into a triangular clipping region on the screen: Code: CPaintDC dc(this); POINT pts[3]; CRgn rgn1; CDC memdc; CBitmap cbm; BITMAP bmp; pts[0].x=10; pts[0].y=100; pts[1].x=60; pts[1].y=20; pts[2].x=100; pts[2].y=100; //dc.Polygon(pts,3); rgn1.CreatePolygonRgn(pts,3,ALTERNATE); dc.SelectClipRgn(&rgn1); memdc.CreateCompatibleDC(&dc); cbm.LoadBitmap(IDB_BITMAP1); cbm.GetBitmap(&bmp); CBitmap *tbmp=memdc.SelectObject(&cbm); dc.BitBlt(0,0,bmp.bmWidth,bmp.bmHeight,&memdc,0,0,SRCCOPY); memdc.SelectObject(tbmp);

Thx a Lot..Still one more question , i have the following attached bitmap , when i use the code u gave me, it doesn't fit this bitmap in Each hex, it spread it along as many hex i am drawing... check" Result.jpg" to see what i mean. how can i fit this bitmap in one hex, because i want to fit other bitmaps in the other hexes thank you for the help.

Between drawing each hexagon, call SelectClipRgn(NULL) to reset the clipping region, then call it again with the new hex region.

thx a lot for ur help... but i tried that and it didnt work... if u dun mind ill show u my code tell me how exactly should i do it , and thx in advance but its just i need to fix it before wednesday and its not working... i have a class called childview.cpp it has sthg like: . . . .//code . . Code: void CChildView::drawMap(CDC * pdc) { Hexagon obj; CPoint point(600, 150); CClientDC dc(this); Dimensions dStep; double hexagonSide = 40;//side of one edge double r=((cos(30*PI/180))*hexagonSide); int r2=int (ceil(r)); int NbOfHexes=3; int shiftByX=hexagonSide+r2; CBitmap test; test.LoadBitmapW(IDB_BITMAP7);//IDB_BITMAP2 COLORREF RGB=RGB(255,0,255);//RGB object //**** Starting hex dStep = obj.draw(pdc, point, hexagonSide,test,RGB,RandColorsVec); ..//then changing coordinate of points then drawing again dStep = obj.draw(pdc, point, hexagonSide,test,RGB,RandColorsVec); //etc.... //and the method .draw is in a class called hexagons.cpp and is as follows: Dimensions Hexagon::draw(CDC * pdc, CPoint crdSouthEast, double hexagonSide,CBitmap& test,COLORREF RGB,vector <COLORREF> *RandColorsVec) { Dimensions dResult; CPoint m_StartPoint = crdSouthEast;//(100,100) CPoint m_EndPoint = crdSouthEast; CPoint Temp; computeHexagonQuantities(hexagonSide);// POINT pts[6];//set of vertices of the hex //Drawing m_StartPoint.x -= int(ceil(r)); int temp=int(ceil(r)); m_EndPoint.x =m_StartPoint.x+temp; m_EndPoint.y -= int(ceil(r)); pts[0]=m_StartPoint; pts[1]=m_EndPoint; m_EndPoint.x=m_StartPoint.x; m_EndPoint.y-= int(ceil(r)); pts[2]=m_EndPoint; m_EndPoint.x-=int(ceil(s)); pts[3]=m_EndPoint; Temp.x=m_EndPoint.x; m_EndPoint.x-=int(ceil(r)); m_EndPoint.y+= int(ceil(r)); //dc.LineTo(m_EndPoint); pts[4]=m_EndPoint; m_EndPoint.x = Temp.x; m_EndPoint.y+= int(ceil(r)); //dc.LineTo(m_EndPoint); pts[5]=m_EndPoint; m_EndPoint.x =m_StartPoint.x; m_EndPoint.y =m_StartPoint.y; pdc->Polygon(pts,6); dResult.height = int(ceil(b)); dResult.width = int(ceil(a)); dResult.h = int(ceil(h)); dResult.r = int(ceil(r)); return dResult; } //so can u add the codes for me plz? thx again

Sorry, I can't do much with that code. There are several classes that I have no idea what they do and I don't know how or where you are calling this function. I don't see any use of CRgn or SetClipRgn in this code snippit either.
