Rotates the drawing context by the specified angle (in radians) around the origin point (usually 0,0). This only affects subsequent drawing. Any drawing done before the Rotate method call is not rotated.
New in 2020r2
Supported for all project types and targets.
Rotates the drawing context at the x and y coordinates by the specified angle (in radians). This only affects subsequent drawing. Any drawing done before the Rotate method called is not rotated.
Use Translate to move the origin.
Support for Rotate in Desktop and Console applications was added in 2021r1.
When used in combination with Scale and/or Translate to draw into a PDFDocument, Rotate may behave differently than it does when drawing to normal Graphics object because the rotation is being handled by the PDF engine itself.
From within an MobileCanvas.Paint event handler:
Const Pi = 3.14159
g.Translate(g.Width / 2, g.Height / 2)
g.Rotate(Pi / 4) // 45 degrees or 1/8 of a circle
g.DrawingColor = Color.Blue
g.FillRectangle(10, 10, 50, 50)
