Subject RE: resize a rotated shape
Date Thu, 29 Nov 2007 16:21:16 GMT
I'm not sure you should adjust the x or y of your rectangle.  If you
ever deal with paths or polygons, this method would get far more

In the second part of your email, it sounds like you're having trouble
managing transforms when translating/scaling/rotating any amount of
times in any order.

I found this a real pain in the neck.  With my transforms, I applied (in
order) translate, then scale, then rotate (I didn't mess with skew and
shear).  If I wanted to change say, the translate value, I would UNDO
the rotate, then UNDO the scale, apply the translation, then REDO the
scale and REDO the rotate.

I have a utility class that can help immensely with this.  I'll attach
it to this message.  If that fails, let me know and I can send it
directly to you.
