#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LBitmapBase::Shear(nAngle, bHorizontal=TRUE, crFill=0)

L_INT nAngle;

angle of slant

L_BOOL bHorizontal;

flag that indicates the direction of the shear


COLORREF value for the fill color

Moves the corners of the class object's bitmap in the fashion of a parallelogram.

Parameter Description
nAngle The angle of slant. Positive values are for clockwise angles; negative values are for counterclockwise angles. The angle is expressed in hundredths of degrees, with a limit of 4500 (45 degrees).
bHorizontal Flag that indicates the direction of the shear. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  TRUE Horizontal shear.
  FALSE Vertical shear.
crFill The COLORREF value that specifies the fill color. You can specify a COLORREF value, such as the return value of the Windows RGB macro, or you can use the PALETTEINDEX macro to specify a palette color.
