##### Shapescript and element bounds
« on: June 19, 2020, 01:07:48 am »
Hi
When my shapescript is used on a diagram the element bounds are bigger than than the defined shape and I cant seem to fix it. My shapescript is below and any inout would be welcome - thanks
shape main
{
DefSize(150,70);
setfillcolor(255,255,255); // default is white
RoundRect(0,0,100,70,30,30);

}

Graham,

You always write a shapescript based on a 100 x 100 square, even if you want a rectangular shape.

So you should do
RoundRect(0,0,100,100,30,30);
If you want your rounded rectangle to align with the boundaries of your shape.
