[GDI+] Repeating an image

Hello!

Im making a repeating background with an image. It moves slowly downwards. When the upper border of the image gets into view it should then begin there with the lower border of the image. In DirectX i made that by reducing the texture coords and when it comes to negative values restarting at 1. Is there a similar way in GDI+?

Greetings

There is. First, you have to use a DrawImage overload with a ImageAttribute parameter. In the ImageAttribute you change the wrapping behaviour (SetWrapMode), in your case likely WrapModeTile.

Offsetting can be achieved by setting Graphics::SetTransform appropriately.
Can't say how simple this will be. You probably have to do a proper calculation for your "texcoord matrix".

Hope this gets you started.
