ViewerToImageRectangle Method


Converts a rectangle in viewer coordinates to image coordinates.


public Rectangle ViewerToImageRectangle( 
   Rectangle rect, 
   bool accountForViewPerspective 
Rectangle ViewerToImageRectangle(  
   Rectangle rect, 
   bool accountForViewPerspective 
   Rectangle^ ViewerToImageRectangle( 
      Rectangle^ rect, 
      bool accountForViewPerspective 


The rectangle in viewer coordinates.

true to return the coordinates in the current Image view perspective. false to return the coordinates in top-left view perspective.

Return Value

A System.Drawing.Rectangle object containing the rectangle coordinates.


This method converts a rectangle from viewer (physical) to image (logical) coordinates. The viewer coordinates is what you are currently seeing on the screen. It contains the current scale and scroll values (as well as any padding if set). For example, when you use the RasterViewerInteractiveMode.UserRectangle, the value obtained from the RasterViewerRectangleEventArgs.Rectangle parameter to the InteractiveUserRectangle event is in physical coordinates. If you need to convert this value to image coordinates (for example, to use it as a region or to find the exact pixel coordinate of this rectangle in the image) then you should use the ViewerToImageRectangle method.

When  accountForViewPerspective is set to true, the return rectangle value is in the same view perspective as the current image (RasterImage.ViewPerspective) which might not be necessary in top-left coordinates. If this value is false, the return value is always in top-left coordinates.

To convert a rectangle from image (logical) to viewer (physical) coordinates, use the ImageToViewerRectangle method.

To convert a point from image to viewer coordinates and back, use ImageToViewerPoint and ViewerToImagePoint.
