Is there any way to draw a border using the DrawLine or the DrawBox commands under the percentage system?
It seems that drawing on point (100.0, 100.0) is problematic due to rounding issues.

Hi george++.

I reason you can rearrange the formula for percentage.

So, to get percentage of point 1 x and x being 500, and width being 1024 the equation is:

500/1024 = 0.48828125

Now, you got your percentage, you got to rearrange the formula

Let's say you got 0.33 and x is your unknown

x/1024 = 0.33 // multiply both sides by 1024

x/1024 * 1024 = 0.33 * 1024 // on the left of the equation, the 1024 cancel out to give 1

x = 0.33 * 1024

x = 338

Forgive me in the case you already new that and you was asking for something else. Obviously, with integer pixel values they will be to rounded up or down, whichever the case.



Hope that helps, and please forgive me in the case this wasn't the answer you was after.

You are welcome george++. I just hope I did not disrespect your intelligence. When someone presents a problem, I just seek to solve it in the easiest most simple way (to me). In the case there is a better solution, I hope to learn from the other always, as long as there is concrete example to learn from. I am less than a programmer, so I am always greatful to learn from masters as yourself in whatever knowledge and experience you can help others and the community. Take care.
