Line drawing doesn't work properly

#1 Post by SusanTheCat » Tue Feb 02, 2016 6:11 pm

If you try to draw a line using canvas.line going from right to left, it gets drawn in the wrong place. Very consistently in the wrong place.

Code: Select all

dot1 = (100,100) #left dot
dot2 = (200,100) #right dot

canvas.line(colour,dot2,dot1,width = 2) # right to left: won't work
canvas.line(colour,dot1,dot2,width = 2) # left to right: will work
So I made a work around:

Code: Select all

def correctedline(in_canvas,in_colour,in_point1,in_point2,in_width):
    if (in_point1[0] < in_point2[0]):
        point1 = in_point1
        point2 = in_point2
        point1 = in_point2
        point2 = in_point1
    in_canvas.line(in_colour,point1,point2,width = in_width)
