    Re: Get X/Y coordinates

    OK, but do you have a limit to the map. IE, I assume there's a top and left to the map, since you never mention a (-1,-1) coordinate, but is there a right or bottom tile, or does it go on forever? If...

    Re: Get X/Y coordinates

    If the form is not divisible by 32, do you show a partial tile? If not, what do those pixels on the outside of outer most tiles of the map represent? I think you're being sloppy in how you handle...

    Re: Get X/Y coordinates

    Ahhh... I get what you mean now. I can see a couple of potential problems:
    1. What if the height and width are not evenly divisible by 32?
    2. What if the mouse is not over the form?
    3....

    Re: Get X/Y coordinates

    I don't have time right now to look into this in depth, but after a quick glance, instead of dividing everything by 32, have you tried dividing the height by the number of rows (5) and the width by...
  5. Re: Generating rectangles around a centre point in a spiral starting from the centre

    I would say that hardcoding is the worst way to implement this, so your question here is well worth asking.

    There are two general approaches you could take to compute all the coordinates:

    Arnoutdv, I'm just glancing at your code... are you coming up with the indexes or permutations or combinations? It seems like you're counting permutations, but the OP specified combinations:

    Yes, it's true, and it is fairly easy to prove. Let's take a smaller example: the case of the product of the first two primes, 2*3=6:

    In this case, all primes will have a remainder of 1 or 5. Why,...
