If we change the draw direction of the second rectangle to ddClockwise (default is
ddCounterClockwise) then we get the same result as with Even Odd:
pdfSetFillColor(pdf, PDF_RGB(120, 120, 220));
pdfRectangle(pdf, 50.0, 50.0, 250.0, 100.0, fmNoFill);
pdfSetDrawDirection(pdf, ddClockwise); // Change the draw direction
pdfRectangle(pdf, 70.0, 70.0, 210.0, 60.0, fmNoFill);
pdfClosePath(pdf, fmFill); // Non-Zero Winding Number
Winding (fmFill):
Even Odd (fmFillEvOdd):
The filling rules work also with clipping paths and more complex paths:
#include "dynapdf.h"
// First we declare our error callback function
SI32 PDF_CALL PDFError(const void* Data, SI32 ErrCode, const char*
ErrMessage, SI32 ErrType)
printf("%s\n", ErrMessage); return 0;
void DrawPath(const void* PDF, double x, double y, TClippingMode Mode,
TDrawDirection Direction, UI32 Color)
pdfSetFillColor(PDF, Color);
pdfTriangle(PDF, x+100, y+50, x+150, y+150, x+50, y+150, fmNoFill);
pdfSetDrawDirection(PDF, Direction);
pdfTriangle(PDF, x+100, y+180, x+50, y+80, x+150, y+80, fmNoFill);
pdfClipPath(PDF, Mode, fmFillStroke);
pdfSetFont(PDF, "Arial", fsBold | fsItalic, 40, true, cp1252);
pdfSetFillColor(PDF, 0);
pdfWriteText(PDF, x+50, y+90, "CLIPPING");
int main(int argc, char* argv[])
void* pdf = pdfNewPDF();
if (!pdf) return 2;
