WmfMapMode

WmfMapMode enumeration

The map modes

public enum WmfMapMode : short

Values

Name Value Description
Text 1 The text Each logical unit is mapped to one device pixel. Positive x is to the right; positive y is down
Lometric 2 The lometric Each logical unit is mapped to 0.1 millimeter. Positive x is to the right; positive y is up.
Himetric 3 The himetric Each logical unit is mapped to 0.01 millimeter. Positive x is to the right; positive y is up.
Loenglish 4 The loenglish Each logical unit is mapped to 0.01 inch. Positive x is to the right; positive y is up.
Hienglish 5 The hienglish Each logical unit is mapped to 0.001 inch. Positive x is to the right; positive y is up.
Twips 6 The twips Each logical unit is mapped to one twentieth (1/20) of a point. In printing, a point is 1/72 of an inch; therefore, 1/20 of a point is 1/1440 of an inch. This unit is also known as a “twip”.
Isotropic 7 The isotropic Logical units are mapped to arbitrary device units with equally scaled axes; that is, one unit along the x-axis is equal to one unit along the y-axis. The META_SETWINDOWEXT and META_SETVIEWPORTEXT records specify the units and the orientation of the axes.
Anisotropic 8 The anisotropic Logical units are mapped to arbitrary units with arbitrarily scaled axes.
