Drawing a circle filled with colour

01-15-2002, 10:04 PM
In my program i need to draw circles filled with colour. I know one method eg..

for i = 1 to 20
next i

but i was wondering if there is a proper fill command like when drawing boxes...eg

also i dont want to use the "Fill style solid" from the form menu as it makes everything i draw solid, and i dont want to have to keep switching the fill style everytime i draw something

There isnt a regular VB command to do this, but there are the APIs FloodFill and ExtFloodFill which are designed for this kind of thing.

What's wrong with switching fillstyles? That's exactly what the property is for. If you are really feeling lazy then you could write something like this:
Public Sub SolidCircle(ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long, ByVal radius As Long, ByVal colour As Long, ByVal fillColour As Long)
Dim oldStyle As Long, oldColour As Long

oldStyle = Me.FillStyle: oldColour = Me.FillColor

Me.FillStyle = vbSolid
Me.FillColor = fillColour
Me.Circle (x, y), radius, colour

Me.FillStyle = oldStyle: Me.FillColour = oldColour
End If

that line and box fill thing you posted at the top reminds me of Qbasic.

well it does.
