GdPicture14 Namespace / GdPicturePDF Class / DrawRoundedRectangle Method
The horizontal (X) coordinate of the rectangle's starting point, expressed in the current units specified by the SetMeasurementUnit method with respect to the defined origin, related to the currently selected page.
The vertical (Y) coordinate of the rectangle's starting point, expressed in the current units specified by the SetMeasurementUnit method with respect to the defined origin, related to the currently selected page.
The width of the rectangle, expressed in the current units specified by the SetMeasurementUnit method.
The height of the rectangle, expressed in the current units specified by the SetMeasurementUnit method.
The radius of the circle, of which the arc in the rectangle's corners is a part, expressed in the current units specified by the SetMeasurementUnit method. The center of this circle is situated inside the rectangle's corners.
Set this parameter to true, if you want to fill the rectangle using the currently defined fill color, otherwise set it to false. You can set the fill color using the SetFillColor(Byte,Byte,Byte) method.
Set this parameter to true, if you want to stroke the rectangle (draw a boundary line along the rectangle) using the currently defined line color, otherwise set it to false. You can set the line color using the SetLineColor(Byte,Byte,Byte) method.

    DrawRoundedRectangle Method (GdPicturePDF)
    In This Topic
    Draws a rounded rectangle (a rectangle with rounded corners) on the currently selected page of the loaded PDF document according to what you have specified. The starting point (the upper left corner) of the rectangle and its dimensions need to be set in the current units defined in the PDF document with respect to the currently located origin, related to the actual page. The rectangle is clearly defined by the starting point and its width and height.

    You can simply use the GetMeasurementUnit method to determine the currently defined units and you can easily use the SetMeasurementUnit method to reset the units according to your preference.

    Parameters

    Left
    The horizontal (X) coordinate of the rectangle's starting point, expressed in the current units specified by the SetMeasurementUnit method with respect to the defined origin, related to the currently selected page.
    Top
    The vertical (Y) coordinate of the rectangle's starting point, expressed in the current units specified by the SetMeasurementUnit method with respect to the defined origin, related to the currently selected page.
    Width
    The width of the rectangle, expressed in the current units specified by the SetMeasurementUnit method.
    Height
    The height of the rectangle, expressed in the current units specified by the SetMeasurementUnit method.
    Radius
    The radius of the circle, of which the arc in the rectangle's corners is a part, expressed in the current units specified by the SetMeasurementUnit method. The center of this circle is situated inside the rectangle's corners.
    Fill
    Set this parameter to true, if you want to fill the rectangle using the currently defined fill color, otherwise set it to false. You can set the fill color using the SetFillColor(Byte,Byte,Byte) method.
    Stroke
    Set this parameter to true, if you want to stroke the rectangle (draw a boundary line along the rectangle) using the currently defined line color, otherwise set it to false. You can set the line color using the SetLineColor(Byte,Byte,Byte) method.

    Return Value

    A member of the GdPictureStatus enumeration. If the method has been successfully followed, then the return value is GdPictureStatus.OK.

    We strongly recommend always checking this status first.

    Remarks
    This method is only allowed for use with non-encrypted documents.

    Just to remind you that the centers of the four equal circles at the four rectangle's corners are situated inside the rectangle with respect to the Radius parameter.
