Description

Draws a triangle between specified cartesian coordinates in the graphic using the specified color and transparency (0 ≤ Alpha ≤ 255). If 3 colors are specified, blends the colors in between the vertexes. The next form of TRIANGLE allows display of multiple triangles at a time. This is mostly used if you have a set of vertices and want to display them all at once. The first 2 matrices indicate the x/y coordinates and colors of each points. TRIANGLE will draw 1 quadrilateral for each set of 4 adjacent vertices and blends the colors associated with the 4 points. If a z and projection matrix are provided, for each point, this matrix is multiplied by the [x,y,z,1] vector to create the display x,y coordinates. If zcode is a list that contains 3 real numbers { ex, ey, ez } then x,y are further modified by doing x=ez/z*x-ex and y=ez/z*y-ey creating a perspective projection. If zstring is provided, z clipping will happen using the z value (see below). If zcode="N" or is a list that starts with "N", then each z is normalized to be between 0 and 255. About ZString TRIANGLE([G]) returns a string adapted for z clipping. To use Z clipping, call TRIANGLE to create a Z clipping string (initialized at 255 for each pixels). You can then call TRIANGLE with appropriate z (0-255) values for each of the triangle vertexes and TRIANGLE will not draw pixels further than the already drawn pixels. ZString is automatically updated as appropriate.

TRIANGLE(0,0,5,5,5,-5,#FFh,#FF00h,#FF0000h,128)

About ZString TRIANGLE_P([G]) returns a string adapted for z clipping. To use Z clipping, call TRIANGLE_P to create a Z clipping string (initialized at 255 for each pixels). You can then call TRIANGLE_P with appropriate z (0-255) values for each of the triangle vertexes and TRIANGLE_P will not draw pixels further than the already drawn pixels. ZString is automatically updated as appropriate.
