setting image size

hi all.

I 'm attaching images through c# using lisp _image  and sendcommand in a predefined rectangle.

how can I specify width and height of the image so the image is exactly placed inside the area that I want?

(scale is not a good option because as image ratio changes scale must also change).

thanks in advance.

you have to go via scale-factors as AutoCAD does not have properties for SizeX and SizeY. So you have to check the imagesize (width & height) and with that you have to calculate the scalefactors for X and Y.


BTW: working with C#, using LISP ... to run SendCommand ==> it's not the most direct way to go, is there a reason why you do that in this way?

If it's just knowledge ... try >>>this link<<< from Kean Walmsley.
