I'm working on a 2D game, and I need to make a map editor. I've made map editors in the past, but there has always been a problem. When you're drawing, if you swipe the mouse across the screen, it will skip large chunks of space. So what I want to know how to do, essentially, is draw a line.
I want to be able to take 2 points and fill every point that touches the line between those two points. Once I know how to do that, I can implement it in my map editor. Does anyone know any good resources that tell how to do this, or maybe some sample code?

Most 2D APIs will have functions to draw lines given two points, what API are you using for the editor ? (For normal C# forms you can use the DrawLine method in System.Drawing.Graphics)
private void DrawTileLine(Point p1, Point p2,PointU16 tile) { Vector2 dir = new Vector2(p2.X - p1.X, p2.Y - p1.Y); float len = dir.Length(); Vector2 st = new Vector2(p1.X, p1.Y); Point cur = new Point(p1.X, p1.Y); dir.Normalize(); float i = 0f; while (i <= len) { cur.X = (int)st.X; cur.Y = (int)st.Y; tileMap.SetTile(cur.X, cur.Y, tile); st += dir; i++; } }

That's a great method, but I noticed that your x and y variables are unused.
#define ABS(x) (x < 0 ? -x : x) #define SIGN(x) ((x) < 0 ? -1 : ((x) > 0 ? 1 : 0)) void LineTool(TileMap *map,POINT p1,POINT p2,long tile_ID) { long y,x; long dy,dx; long sx,sy; long accum; x = p1.x; y = p1.y; dx = p2.x - p1.x; dy = p2.y - p1.y; sx = SIGN(dx); sy = SIGN(dy); dx = ABS(dx); dy = ABS(dy); p2.x += sx; p2.y += sy; if(dx > dy) { accum = dx >> 1; do{ map->map[y][x] = tile_ID; accum -= dy; if(accum < 0) { accum += dx; y += sy; } x += sx; }while(x != p2.x); }else{ accum = dy >> 1; do{ map->map[y][x] = tile_ID; accum -= dx; if(accum < 0) { accum += dy; x += sx; } y += sy; }while(y != p2.y); } }

while(start.x != end.x);
while(start.x != end.y);
