#include <wx/dc.h>

Detailed Description

wxDCClipper is a helper class for setting a clipping region on a wxDC during its lifetime.

An object of wxDCClipper class is typically created on the stack so that it is automatically destroyed when the object goes out of scope. A typical usage example:

void MyFunction(wxDC& dc)
{
wxDCClipper clip(dc, rect);
// ... drawing functions here are affected by clipping rect ...
}
void OtherFunction()
{
wxDC dc;
MyFunction(dc);
// ... drawing functions here are not affected by clipping rect ...
}
Note
Unlike other similar classes such as wxDCFontChanger, wxDCClipper currently doesn't restore the previously active clipping region when it is destroyed but simply resets clipping on the associated wxDC. This may be changed in the future wxWidgets versions but has to be taken into account explicitly in the current one.
