Command

CONTOUR
CONTOUR


Create a 2D contour. This command must be in the format:
CONTOUR [
START x, y
]
After the START command you can add a combination of LINE and/or ARC commands.
The closing square bracket creates the contour and also creates a variable called ContouRef set to the internal reference number of the first element of the contour. You can use this reference number to select the contour.

Parameters

No Parameters

Example

x1 = 0
x2 = x1 + w1 - w2
x3 = x1 + w1
y1 = 0
y2 = y1 + h1 - h2
y3 = y1 + h1
CONTOUR [
START x1, y1
LINE x2, y2
LINE x3, y3
LINE x1, y1
]


CONTOUR [
START 0, 0
LINE 3, 4
LINE 2, 1
LINE 0, 0
]
