Very Cool Bob, thank you!
I still need to figure out this clipboundary from midpoint problem but I appreciate you modifying the pnt code; it works great and it will be very useful for some things,

I changed the label Boom to NoPoint
On Error Goto NoPoint    LOL

Make sense?

I think what you are suggesting is this:

Code: [Select]
`NewMidpnt = llpnt(0) + urpnt(0)\2NewMidpnt = llpnt(1) + urpnt(1)\2`
yes and no
you need () around the LL and UR to prevent UR(0)/2  +  LL(0) from happening
Code: [Select]
`NewMidpnt = (llpnt(0) + urpnt(0))\2NewMidpnt = (llpnt(1) + urpnt(1))\2`

Also look at / vs \
One of those is integer division which will round off your answer to a whole number

OK CM

You want this:
Code: [Select]
`mdpnt(0) = (llpnt(0) + urpnt(0)) / 2mdpnt(1) = (llpnt(1) + urpnt(1)) / 2`To get your actual value

It looks like the \ operator will round to a whole number

Sorry, just went to the last post, missed a few, but was under the impression you had that taken care of.

Code: [Select]

BOB!

You are the man!

Oh I see!
I read your note, thank you for that too! In this case, you are defining (as you said "like plotting points on a graph") "all" points from the midpoint and building the boundary around the midpoint.
As you said, I am treating it like I am drawing a series of lines to build my boundary.
Whereas the way (proper way) you are doing it is giving the absolute coords from the midpoint and acad is connecting the dots to make the boundary (rectangle)
Very cool indeed!

Thank you again

Mark

Yes sir!

Thank you and thank you for the points code as well.
I like the way you handled that, looping through and incrementing the pnt variable by 1 each time.

You know what would be cool would be to make a function that had 3 arguments, 2 pts and 1 size.  You could pick your points, pass those to the function, and ask user how big the clipping should be, and have the function return the array of points back to your main function

Conceptually I had the right idea; that was to use the midpoint to build the boundary but getting there was a B***H  LOL

Thanks guys!

That sounds cool but I think we hit that already, only not with a function

Wouldn't this method kind of do that?

User just picks points on the raster and it is clipped accordingly

Code: [Select]
`'Clip boundary = picked points (llpnt and urpnt) clipPoints(0) = llpnt(0): clipPoints(1) = llpnt(1) clipPoints(2) = llpnt(0): clipPoints(3) = urpnt(1) clipPoints(4) = urpnt(0): clipPoints(5) = urpnt(1) clipPoints(6) = urpnt(0): clipPoints(7) = llpnt(1) clipPoints(8) = llpnt(0): clipPoints(9) = llpnt(1)`

Yes, but we have hard coded the 5x5. what if we want to change the size of the clipping on the fly

Your idea is really cool but this code here
Code: [Select]
`'Clip boundary = picked points (llpnt and urpnt) clipPoints(0) = llpnt(0): clipPoints(1) = llpnt(1) clipPoints(2) = llpnt(0): clipPoints(3) = urpnt(1) clipPoints(4) = urpnt(0): clipPoints(5) = urpnt(1) clipPoints(6) = urpnt(0): clipPoints(7) = llpnt(1) clipPoints(8) = llpnt(0): clipPoints(9) = llpnt(1)`Is not hardcoding a 5 x5; it is creating the clip boundary based off of the lower left and upper right picked points.

So, bascially your function only needs to fill in the values for the variables llpnt and urpnt; I think

So; if the user inputs 10 x 10; then we need to retrieve that data and do the math on llpnt and urpnt
