Object PmgCanvas (Drawing canvas)

Description:
See: PmgCanvas - Deatiled object description

The PmgCanvas object allows to draw both veri simple and complex animated shapes in 2D graphics. The drawing is controlled by script (JavaScript) in the onDraw event and by using the methods and properties of the CanvasCtx drawing area (eventually by extension object CanvasCtxExt). It allows to draw simple images (for example icons), but also complex animated graphics (animated meters, etc.).
This object inherits properties, methods and events of the PmgObject object.

CtxReset Set CanvasCtx into non-initialized empty state

History:
Pm9.00.00: Object name changed: PmiCanvas -> PmgCanvas
Pm8.03.28: Fixed bug: The read value of the color was incorrect (for example of the strokeStyle property).
Pm8.03.13: Fixed bug: Memory decrease occured if methods save and restore were not called correctly (not in pair).
Pm8.03.08: New simple drawing tool has been created. This way it is possible to draw the canvas object and the editor then transforms it to script.
This tool will be developed further in future versions in order to provide more graphic functions and also to read and render canvas scripts.
The canvas drawing tool can now be opened from following locations:
- Select preconfiguration / Image / Drawing PmgCanvas graphics or
- On the "Draw" tab - when creating new method select option "draw PmgCanvas image" or
- On the "Draw" tab - in script editor local menu select Canvas editor ....
Pm8.03.04:
- On the "Draw" tab it is now possible to create assistant methods for drawing. In the onDraw event it is no longer neede to write the whole drawing script, but assistant methods can be called. This way the drawing script becomes much simpler.
- New CanvasCtxExt object for drawing. This object adds the functions of deformation rotation transformations. The object can be accessed via the pEvent.CtxExt parameter.
Pm8.02.11: new preconfigurations for intelligent valves and pumps.
Pm8.02.07: Created
