LibreCad-2.2.0.alpha - Need help with drawing a line in C++
I wonder if somebody could help?
I'm writng an add on (C++) for LibreCad that will allow one to divide an entity
in to multiple even segments, so far I've managed to select a line, drawn at any
position and angle , divide it and get a list of x-y pairs. I can't work out which
of the existing functions to use to draw my dividing lines. I'll think about dividing
the line later, for now I just want be able to draw lines.
When finished I'll make it available to LibreCad users.
//Data I have:-
line x1-y1, x2-y2 -11.6315 -12.8005 - -10.2243 -14.8783 on layer 2
line x1-y1, x2-y2 -4.70536 -8.10979 - -3.29815 -10.1876 on layer 2
line x1-y1, x2-y2 2.22076 -3.41909 - 3.62797 -5.49692 on layer 2
line x1-y1, x2-y2 9.14688 1.27162 - 10.5541 -0.806215 on layer 2
line x1-y1, x2-y2 16.073 5.96233 - 17.4802 3.88449 on layer 2
Read the Document_Interface class to learn its possibilities.
The Document_Interface class grant you access to the current RS_Document, which contains the current drawing.
This is how it works, you don't have to draw anything yourself, that is done by the application. In the plugin, you modify the document by removing and adding entities.
Look at the existing plugins to see how to iterate over all or only selected entities.
You can delete the original line with Document_Interface::removeEntity() or keep it and add the split lines on a different layer.
For the split lines you may use Document_Interface::addLines() or Document_Interface::addPolyline().

So you want to include header files from librecad sub project into your plugin sub project.
Then you have to append the paths to the INCLUDEPATH variable in the plugin project file.
This is not related with Qt Creator, only a project property setting issue.
But I assume, that this is not a good idea and will bring more trouble. The plugin interface class should be the only common used source between the main application and the plugin.
