Anyone know how to draw a perfect circle using the mouse.

In my drawing program, I'm trying to add the ability to draw a perfect circle using an ellipse. Does anyone know a good way to do this? Thanks.

    Yeh, you will just use the Ellipse function and make each of the corners of the circle equal. Understand what I'm saying?

    That will work if he is using a rectangle to define the elipse, (i.e. he specifies a square "rectangle"), if he is using an elipse drawing method based on semi focii, just specify the same coordinate for both semi focii.

  • Thanks, that was the one I was looking for. Using the mouse with it is a little harder so using the semi focii method will work a lot better.
