Description

Shifts the position of the document origin. The function does not modify the relative

positions of objects in the document; the coordinate locations of objects, however, will change when the origin location is modified.

PROCEDURE SetOrigin(
x  :REAL;
y  :REAL);
def vs.SetOrigin(x, y):
    return None

Parameters

x REAL X-offset from current origin.
y REAL Y-offset from current origin.

Remarks

The difference between this and VS:SetOriginAbsolute is that this call shifts the origin the specified amount, where [{VS:SetOriginAbsolute]] sets the origin to the specified values.

See the <a href=http://www.vectorlab.info/index.php?title=Absolute_Origin>VectorLab article</a> on origins by Gerard Jonker.

Example

VectorScript

Rect(0,0,1,1);
SetOrigin(1,1);

{ Creates a rectangle with the bottom left point at coordinates (0,0), then moves the origin so that the top right point of the rectangle has coordinates (0,0). }
