### How to a find the length of rotated line?

by **Z2ZhY2tlbG1hbm4** » Tue, 20 Jul 2004 13:06:13 GMT

Word 2002 gives the "size" of a rotated line in terms of the lengths of the two lines that would form a right-triangle with the line. I don't want to have to use Pythagoras to determine the length of a rotated line. I've tried unrotating the line, so that it's parallel to the horizontal or vertical axis, but that's fiddly. Any suggestions?

G'day "gfackelmann" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,
Word rasterizes EVERYTHING. True vector objects are ripped to an
onscreen bitmap and that's all you can really play with. Thus
Pythagoras and our other trigonometric friends are here to stay :-)

4.Line.drawtrasform, render wrongs (vector length> ~380)

People,
I use for my graphics program Line.drawtransform to plot a simply sinus
wave. When I use less then ~380 vectors, then the sinus will be correctly
drawn.
But when I set a higher linelist (Vector3[>380]) more then 380, the video
card crashed. After that all drivers of the video card are updated, so this
don't resulted in a chrash any more.
But the sinus will not be correctly drawn above the 380? I see lines from
(0,0) over the hole viewport.
When I set in directX debugger, to debug all, things then i get an microsoft
exception
I don't know what is wrong.
How can i found more information about this exception.
Is there a bug in drawtransform or what do i wrong?
