Erases the specified rectangular area of a window by changing it to the default background color.

void _WClearRectP(WHANDLE wh, Rect r)
WHANDLE wh;            /* Window handle. */
Rect r;                     /* Rectangle to clear. */


The rectangular area is specified in pixels. The output position is unchanged.

The area of the rectangle extends from the top left position to, but not including, the bottom right position. This means that you should declare the bottom and right positions to be one pixel more than the intended size of the rectangle.

For more information on how to create an API library and integrate it with Visual FoxPro, see Accessing the Visual FoxPro API.


The following example creates a window and fills it with Xs. After the user presses a key in response to the Visual FoxPro WAIT command, _WClearRectP(В ) clears a rectangular region of the window.
